Stopping whatsoever the importation of goods from oversea and the exportation of American produce to Europe would stop the British dominion over the country and cause the European market to fall. Furthermore, the U.S. economy, with its large industrial and agricultural production, would be able to provide not only the necessary wants to the nation, but to additionally create a new favorable market for competition.
