Podcast Episode 130: “Did Tariffs Cause the American Civil War?”

Several people emailed me a link to an article on Mises.org over the Thanksgiving week concerning tariffs and the “civil war” [sic]. The author of the article, Chris Carlton, does a nice job with his podcast and is a thoughtful fellow, but he gets several things wrong, most importantly the real reason the North and South were at odds for nearly eighty years before the War in 1861. I correct his mistakes and give you the bigger picture in this episode of The Brion McClanahan Show.
