The President's Control of the Tariff

The President's Control of the Tariff

by John Day Larkin




Dealing with the tariff primarily from the point of view of public law and policy, this volume explains how the present process of administrative tariff adjustment has been gradually evolved from 1789 to the present; how it is possible for the Chief Executive to inject his own policy views into the flexible tariff; and how he may make a more complete revision of tariff rates, either up or down, than Congress usually does on one of its periodic revisions. The Supreme Court's approval of this enormous delegation of legislative power is shown to be in marked contrast to recent decisions in the so-called New Deal cases.
