John Stuart Mill made essential contributions to social theory, political theory and political economy. He has been called "the most influential English-speaking philosopher of the nineteenth century".

The British sugar colonies grew up with the colonies on the American mainland, but there were differences in economic, social, and political organization. There was a trade between the sugar islands and the mainland colonies in the eighteenth century. The French sugar colonies also traded with the mainland colonies, often selling cheaper than the British planters, who petitioned in 1732 to have that trade outlawed, in order to protect their own.

 The Revolutionary War was a serious disruption of this system of trade since shipping sugar to England was also more difficult during the war.

After the war, trade with the mainland was no longer covered by the Mercantilist protections that favored trade within the empire. The planters wanted to continue trade with the former mainland colonies, now the United States and they argued against the newly placed restrictions, citing their dependence on the mainland as a trading partner, in effect reversing their stand on free trade.

The essay is a historical discussion of the free trade from perspective of the United States and the United Kingdom.

For those readers who need to learn Mill's examination of the trade question and who are interested in the long and difficult history of these entwined nations, this is a must-read book.

John Mill is also known as one of the founders of economics. This is the right book for people who are also interested in the deepest thoughts and views about free trade by John Mill, one of the greatest thinkers on the planet.
