American School (economics) - Wikipedia It is the macroeconomic philosophy that dominated United States national policies from the time of the American Civil War until the mid-20th century. Closely related to mercantilism, it can be seen as contrary to classical economics. It consisted of these three core policies: Protecting industry through selective high tariffs (especially 1861–1932) and through subsidies (especially 1932–1970). Government investments in infrastructure creating targeted internal improvements (especially in transportation). A national bank with policies that promote the growth of productive enterprises rather than speculation. The American School's key elements were promoted by John Quincy Adams and his National Republican Party, Henry Clay and the Whig Party and Abraham Lincoln through the early Republican Party which embraced, implemented and maintained this economic system. During its American System period, the United States grew into the largest economy in the world with the highest standard of living, surpassing the British Empire by the 1880s.[disputed – discuss] * Dilemma Of What Two Due * Which should be supported of the three core policies in american school economics as us public policy ? * Public Private Trust Third Tier National Bank Holdings * Have any been exposed to a third tier of economics which has been described in a thread entitled " Empowering Americans - Foundry For A Public Private Trust " ?
