About this Quote

This quote by Benjamin Disraeli is a criticism of the idea of protectionism, which is the practice of protecting a certain market or sector of the economy from foreign competitors through using tariffs and other steps. Disraeli is arguing that taxing the neighborhood in order to benefit a specific class of individuals is not protectionism, but rather a form of exploitation. He is recommending that protectionism should be utilized to benefit the whole community, not just a select couple of. This quote is a tip that protectionism should be utilized to benefit the whole, not just a couple of. It is a reminder that the federal government must not be used to benefit a certain class of people at the expense of the rest of the community. Protectionism must be utilized to benefit the entire community, not simply a select few.
