I must say, it's very mild stuff compared to what we actually have today. If that was all government did, it would be a vast improvement.the plan "consisted of three mutually reinforcing parts: a tariff to protect and promote American industry; a national bank to foster commerce; and federal subsidies for roads, canals, and other 'internal improvements' to develop profitable markets for agriculture."
- Tariff: As a lesser of evils option, a flat, low, across the board tariff is preferable to all other taxes. It creates the least paperwork/enforcement burden, and is Constitutional.
- National bank: It would be best if they only produced gold and silver coin for the Congress, as the Constitution specifies. If a "debt-free" money, issued by the government is part of this plan, then it is preferable to the Federal Reserve System of Debt Dealers we have today. A National fiat currency would be rather harmless, as long as there are competing currencies, no legal tender laws, no price fixing, and no fixed exchange rates. In that situation, only government employees or contractors would have to accept a National fiat currency, as part of their employment contract. Obviously businesses would probably also accept it too, but the purchasing power and exchange rates would depend on market forces, and how responsible the National Bank was with it's debt-free currency.
- Public roads. That is more of a slippery slope issue. Before modern electronics were created, tolls were a royal pain. Good roads are a benefit. As far as paying for roads, it should be a local issue (town, city, county, maybe State). Not Federal. And public/private partnerships are a scam. Either it's public, or it's private. None of this "socializing costs", "privatizing profits" nonsense.
