In Imperialism, Hobson summarized his thesis about inequality and underconsumption as the indirect cause of imperialism and colonialism and concluded that “there is no necessity to open up new foreign markets” because “whatever is produced in England is con­sumed in England.” But only nine years after he published Imperialism, in his book Economic Interpretation of Investment (1911), Hobson completely abandoned his earlier argument that domestic underconsumption drives imperialism and declared that the investment of foreign capital in a developing country “is always beneficial to the country itself, to the industrial world at large (by increasing world trade), and the investing country in particular.”3 Daniel H. Kruger summarizes Hobson’s argument in Economic Interpretation of Investment: “Though other non-economic motives might eventually bring about an organized endeavor to expel Western political and financial control from the backward areas, a prolonged utilization of Western capital would afford the strongest assurance of pacific development in which all the creditor nations would take their share of profitable exploitation. The EU can use a variety of trade defence instruments in these situations. “Absorbing the rest of the world’s excess output and savings—at the cost of deindustrialization and financial crises—has been America’s exorbitant burden,” they write.

Two years later, in Imperialism, Hobson repeated the same theme in language reminiscent of The Protocols of the Elders of Zion, assert­ing that the international financial system was “controlled, so far as Europe is concerned, by men of a single and peculiar race, who have behind them many centuries of financial experience, [who] are in a unique position to control the policy of nations.” Not only did Jews “control the policy of nations,” but also, “There is not a war, a revo­lution, an anarchist assassination, or any other public shock, which is not gainful to these men; they are harpies who suck their gains from every new forced expenditure and every sudden disturbance of public credit.” Hobson asked: “Does anyone seriously suppose that a great war could be undertaken by any European state, or a great state loan subscribed, if the house of Rothschild and its connections set their face against it?”6 In his 1918 satire 1920: Dips into the Near Future, writing under the pseudonym Lucian, Hobson mocked Zionism as “the ceremonial return of the Chosen People to the City of Their Choice” and imagined a pilgrimage of South African Jews bearing “share certificates” to “the New Jerusalem.”7 Hobson’s attitude to­ward Jews became a subject of controversy in British politics in 2018, when Jeremy Corbyn, then the leader of the Labour Party, published a preface to a new edition of Imperialism.

In Imperialism, Hobson summarized his thesis about inequality and underconsumption as the indirect cause of imperialism and colonialism and concluded that “there is no necessity to open up new foreign markets” because “whatever is produced in England is con­sumed in England.” But only nine years after he published Imperialism, in his book Economic Interpretation of Investment (1911), Hobson completely abandoned his earlier argument that domestic underconsumption drives imperialism and declared that the investment of foreign capital in a developing country “is always beneficial to the country itself, to the industrial world at large (by increasing world trade), and the investing country in particular.”3 Daniel H. Kruger summarizes Hobson’s argument in Economic Interpretation of Investment: “Though other non-economic motives might eventually bring about an organized endeavor to expel Western political and financial control from the backward areas, a prolonged utilization of Western capital would afford the strongest assurance of pacific development in which all the creditor nations would take their share of profitable exploitation. The EU can use a variety of trade defence instruments in these situations. “Absorbing the rest of the world’s excess output and savings—at the cost of deindustrialization and financial crises—has been America’s exorbitant burden,” they write.

What became the “Monroe Doctrine” for Latin America dur­ing the Monroe administration and the “Open Door” doctrine of the McKinley administration (regarding China) both originated with suggestions by British officials to American policymakers that the United States cooperate with Britain in preventing the economic clo­sure of the western hemisphere and China by continental European powers. The basic point is that the major trade imbalances in the world over the last four decades have been driven by the suppression of wage growth, with income being redistributed from labor to capital. 1/2 (January/February 2014): 23.

About the other kind of trade war, the competition among nations for strategic indus­tries, the book has nothing to say. Other variants of Hob­sonism have been embraced by liberals, populists, and noncommunist socialists because it confirms their views that one set of things they dislike, wars and empires, must be caused by other things they dislike, business and banking.

Distorts the Global Economy and Threatens International Peace In the case of unbalanced trade, Keynes believed that tariffs imposed by deficit countries could be justified, but only as short-term measures, and they might be unnecessary if the same result could be achieved by currency devaluation. It would have been impossible for Britain, at the same time, to have exported capital to these regions, as it did, thereby devel­oping them rapidly, and thereby also incurring even larger and rising balance of payments deficits with them, without access to the enormous exchange earnings of colonised lands which were transferred to Britain to offset deficits and substantially finance its capital exports.11, To further this complex, finance-driven triangular trade, Britain ar­ranged for India to export opium to China and later cotton to industrializing Japan, while siphoning off India’s foreign exchange earnings for British benefit. John Harris. Last Slave Ships . At the same time, the growing indebtedness of American consumers to American lenders ballooned the income and political power of the U.S. financial industry, while the import-battered American manufacturing industry dwindled in economic and political importance. This outcome can be postponed, however, as long as some trading partners of the export-promoting states are content to absorb their exports, at the expense of running chronic trade deficits and losing much of their own industry to import competition. The elimination of bilateral and global trade deficits by itself is not enough to prevent the U.S. from degenerating into a postindustrial resource colony and tourist trap for industrial Asia and industrial Europe. Lingering poverty, inequality, religious extremism and war can sow discontent and resentment as unprecedented global mobility lends access to education and travel in other countries.

As in Goethe’s poem “The Sorcerer’s Apprentice,” an initially successful process can get out of control. "-Adam Tooze, author of Crashed: How a Decade of Financial Crises Changed the World During British-American discussions in 1941, according to Stephen C. Neff, “The Americans were particularly dismayed to find that John Maynard Keynes was thinking, in terms somewhat akin to those of Friedrich Naumann earlier in the century, of a postwar system of regional or imperial economic blocs which might be relatively liberal internally, but largely autarkic vis-à-vis one another.”18. The contest among nations and blocs for shares of specific indus­tries is by nature a zero-sum game. 3 comments. India was important to Brit­ain as an exporter in its own right, as Utsa Patnaik has explained: Britain shored up demand in the world outside its colonies, by continuously running current account deficits with the Euro­pean Continent and the USA, and later with the other regions of European settlement—Argentina, Australia and Canada. Description. They, along with much poorer white and black southerners, provided the home market for U.S. infant industries which were protected from foreign competition by a wall of tariffs until after World War II. U.S. trade with China could be perfectly balanced, but most Americans other than libertarians would consider it a disaster if a deindustrialized U.S. imported all of its manufactured goods from China and other countries while exporting commodities and natural resources like soybeans, corn, oil, and gas, plus tourism (which is counted as an export by the U.S. government). They cite a 2017 paper by the economists Branko Milanović, Thomas Hauner, and Suresh Naidu, who write: Using recent data, we show 1) inequality was at historical highs in all the advanced belligerent countries at the turn of the century, 2) rich wealth holders invested more of their assets abroad, 3) risk-adjusted foreign returns were higher than risk adjusted domestic returns, 4) establishing direct political con­trol decreased the riskiness of foreign assets, 5) increased ine­quality was associated with higher share of foreign assets in GDP, and 6) increased share of foreign assets was correlated with higher levels of military mobilization. In the absence of anything like his proposed international system to penalize mercantilist countries with permanent trade surpluses, it is reasonable to assume that Keynes would have favored unilateral measures of national economic self-defense as a second-best option in some cases.   He initiated three: a global tariff on steel, a tariff on European autos, and tariffs on Chinese imports. Author: Matthew C.

Trade Wars Are Class Wars is an excellent guide to one kind of trade war, the competition for limited global consumer demand, a trade war which is indeed a class war within nations. This imposes an untenable choice on the rest of the world: absorb the glut through additional spending (saving less) or endure a slump caused by insufficient global demand. Given the resistance of vested interests to change, Klein and Pettis suggest that China and Germany may need to be pressured into raising the in­comes of workers and consumers: “The deficit countries must find a way to force the elites in the surplus countries to internalize the costs of their behavior, and they must do so in the face of substantial opposition from their own elites.”.
