The Smoot-Hawley Tariff Act was a law on June 17, 1930 which raised the U.S tariffs of the majority of the goods which was imported to a record high. A tariff is a tax which is moved passed a certain boundary. This action made other countries such as Britain and Germany make the same move as President Hoover which was a major factor in The Great depression. The Depression had a heavy impact on society such as the unemployment rate was at an all time high. A choice which did nothing but cause trouble.
Before this time, the government had “a lack of power to tax” (Brinkley p.142) The first was a tax on alcoholic beverages. The second was a tax on imports. This was a way to raise money and to protect domestic industries from foreign competition. (Brinkley p.152) While the Constitution made no reference to political parties, many were convinced that Hamilton and his followers were doing many of the same things that the corrupt British government had done. (Brinkley p. 153) They were known at the time as “Federalists”.
As Harms points out, in France in the first half of the century there was barely any recognition that the conduct of the slave trade might be a moral issue, though this would change in the run-up to the revolution. So, when Harms asks rhetorically of Durand's opening sentence "How could [he] outline such an evil mission in such impersonal prose?" one suspects that he knows the answer. For investors like the Billy brothers the existence of the slaves was more virtual than real, but their decision to involve themselves more directly was nevertheless a big one: the risks were great, foremost among them disease and death, both of the human cargo and the crew. On average, slave traders in this period made returns of between 7 and 10 per cent annually - more or less in line with other branches of commerce.
F), therefore Great Britain decided to tax the Colonies. This wasn’t necessarily a smart move, because the colonies began to feel resentment against their mother country. Its 1765, and the first British Duty is imposed, the Stamp Act. The Colonies went crazy. Benjamin Franklin sent a letter to Britain to try to “repeal” it, but Britain refused to repeal it.
In the Monroe Doctrine America unilaterally closed all new colonization in the Western Hemisphere. Also it opposed any interference in Latin America and stated that they will not be involved in European affairs. This document perfectly described American wishes although they did not have the power to enforce them. -Brendan Lawler “Era of Good Feelings” A period of time during Monroe's presidency (1816-1824) when the country was "united and prosperous" and the world was finally at peace. James Monroe was "a person of good feeling" and during his presidency the issues of previous years (Federalist opposition, problems with trade as a result of conflicts with Europeans, ect.)
In return, it gave profits that were more than 10% annually. The South Atlantic System created wealth for all of Europe; owners of the plantations lived in England where they spent their money; navigation acts required all traded sugar to go through England; slave trading also increased during this time. The South Atlantic System manufactured wealth in Europe, but poverty and misery in the West and West Central Africa; by 1870, the slave trade had seized more than 11,000,000 Africans; it also created militaristic centralized states in the coastal areas. War and the slave trade had been in Africa for centuries; as the price for slaves would increase, kings and warlords would ransack towns seeking more slaves; by the 1720s, the Asante kings in the Gold Coast were using slave trading and firearms to extend their dominion. Slave trading created torture and misery.
Kathleen Costopoulos Little History 2291 22 October 2010 Position Paper #3 The abolitionist movement was not something that was widely accepted during the time of Thomas Jefferson. Thomas Jefferson was a well-respected member of the American government and was one of the first statesmen to propose the idea of eradicating slavery. However, his ideals clashed with the values of those who followed him so he was caught in a bind between voicing his opinion about the abolition of slavery and keeping his positive image in the eyes of the public. David Brion Davis’s thesis argues that “Thomas Jefferson’s personal commitment against slavery was ambiguous” (83). I believe David Brion Davis’s thesis to be sound.

The crucial reason why this war was unjust is because it was not used as the very last option to solve the ongoing disagreements between British Parliament and the colonies. Leading up to the peak of the colonies’ frustration, they chose non-violent protests and other actions to send the message to King George III and Parliament. They held the Boston Tea Party,
