  • The Tariff Debate
  • YES!
  • A high tariff on imported goods has been proposed.
  • NO!
  • The Tariff's effect
  • That Sounds Great!
  • The high tax on imported goods would keep U.S dollars in America.
  • That would be horrible!
  • The Opinion of the North
  • Yeah!
  • That tariff is a great idea!
  • I agree!
  • Congress was making plans to pass a high tariff, or tax on imported British goods. They felt that the tax would make the imported goods more expensive than northern American goods, and therefore incourage southerners to buy goods from the North.
  • The opinion of the South
  • I hate this tariff!
  • The proposed tariff divided congress. Most of the Northern representatives strongly supported the tariff, while members from the South were opposed to the idea.
  • Further Problems
  • There are many merchants in the south, so they liked the tariff because it increased the price of their competitors goods, which caused the public to purchase their goods.
  • A Solution is Found
  • Perhaps a lower tariff would be best suited to the needs of the whole country.
  • Southerners disliked the tariff because it raised the price of the former inexpensive british goods, making the previously more expensive northern goods the cheaper pick out of the two. Although they were cheaper by comparison, the Northern goods still cost more than what the south would have paid for the same goods from Britian before the tariff.
  • Why help the north at the expense of the South?
  • Yeah!
  • The South felt that the government was purposely targeting the South with the tariff because they favored the north. Matters only became worse when Vice President John Calhoun argued that States should have the right to nullify laws and when Southern States threatened to secede from the union. America was on the brink of civil war.
  • Why help the north at the expense of the South?
  • Yeah!
  • Congress is biased!
  • Congress decided to pass a lower tariff to please Northern merchants and have less of an impact on Southern consumers.
  • That could work...
  • Lower is better!
