From the Preface: "Manufactures would give us home markets; capital and labour would develop our resources; still England insists upon our looking at the world from her standpoint. The policy we advocate is for a young country, with boundless resources yet undeveloped, limited capital and sparse population; and it is the policy under which all great manufacturing and commercial nations have attained the highest prosperity"
