Answers to Correspondents

C. W. HOLT (Nottingham).—We agree with Marx’s “Discourse on Free Trade.” Free Trade in England helped make it the “workshop of the world.” But what it did for capitalists here Protection did for those abroad. Your statement that Free Trade “widens the breach between Capital and Labour ” is false. It is not fiscal systems that cause the “breach,” but the development of the productive forces, as Marx shows in “Capital.”
