Episode 67: Lobbyists And The Making Of US Tariff Policy With Daniel Peart - focused on Daniel's latest book on how active lobbyists were in Washington throughout the antebellum era. He describes how they involved themselves at every stage of the making of tariff policy, from setting the congressional agenda, through the writing of legislation in committee, to the final vote. In the podcast, Daniel also reveals how tariff policy was not simply a partisan issue but rather a more complex, personal issue for American citizens.
