The way in which each of these goals is affected by the degree of openness depends upon the potential economic power of the state as defined by its relative size and level of development. Let us begin with aggregate national income because it is most straightforward. Given the exception noted above, conventional neoclassical theory demonstrates that the greater the degree of openness in the international trading system, the greater the level of aggregate economic income. This conclusion applies to all states regardless of their size or relative level of development.

It is, however, important to note that the United States was hardly involved in these developments, and that America’s ratio of trade to aggregate economic activity did not increase during the nineteenth century. Britain put to use her internal flexibility and external power in securing a more open structure. At the domestic level, openness was favored by the rising industrialists. The opposition of the agrarian sector was mitigated by its capacity for adjustment: the rate of capital investment and technological innovation was high enough to prevent British agricultural incomes from falling until some thirty years after the abolition of the Corn Laws.

Trade proportions increased from the early part of the nineteenth century to about 1880. Between 1880 and 1900 there was a decrease, sharper if measured in current prices than constant ones, but apparent in both statistical series for most countries. Between 1900 and 1913—and here is the exception from the tariff pattern—there was a marked increase in the ratio of trade to aggregate economic activity. This trend brought trade proportions to levels that have generally not been reattained. During the 1920’s and 1930’s the importance of trade in national economic activity declined.
