A few remarks concerning these figures may be of some avail. When a sudden fall in the British and Irish exports took place in the years 1882-1886, and the alarmists took advantage of the bad times to raise the never-forgotten war-cry of protection, especially insisting on the damages made to British trade by German competition, Mr. Giffen analyzed the figures of international trade in his Finance Essays, and in a report read in 1888 before the Board of Trade Commission.
