Stumbling across former British Prime Minster Harold Macmillan’s 1933 Preface to “The 8193kqdG1oLProtectionist Case in the 1840’s” by Derek Walker-Smith, one is reminded of the cyclical and secular. Macmillan writes: “In the course of some ninety years, the wheel has certainly turned full circle. The Protectionist case, which seemed to most of our fathers and grandfathers so outrageous, even so wicked, has been restated and carried to victory. Free Trade, which was almost like a sacred dogma, is in its turn rejected and despised.”
