Henry Charles Carey

Henry Charles Carey from a circa 1865 ''carte de visite'' photograph by [[Frederick Gutekunst]] Henry Charles Carey (December 15, 1793 – October 13, 1879) was the leading 19th-century economist of the American School of capitalism, and chief economic adviser to U.S. President Abraham Lincoln.

Carey is best known for the book ''The Harmony of Interests: Agricultural, Manufacturing, and Commercial'' (1851), which denigrates the "British System" of ''laissez faire'' free trade capitalism in comparison to the American System of developmental capitalism, which uses tariff protection and government intervention to encourage production and national self-sufficiency.
