For example, Hawaiian sugar was admitted to the United States free of duty from 1876 to 1890 while to meet the American demand much sugar was being imported from Cuba or Java. These full duty imports were the marginal supply and fixed the price. 6Other examples abound in the history of the wealth of nations and the analysis of a few instances in which protection rents determined major changes in international trade will assist an analysis of the possibilities of increasing national income by the use of force.
To allow for the national opportunity costs, the price of sugar to French consumers would have to be investigated, and if the islanders are counted part of the French nation, we must add the loss they suffered in paying prices for supplies two or three times as high as those previously charged by the Dutch. Even in authors sympathetic to Colbert the evidence presented fails, when all these factors are considered, to indicate that any gain in national income resulted during Colbert's lifetime from the capture of the trade.
