‘[T]he immediate causes of this war … are connected with commercial treaties, protective tariffs, and financial progress … German “Kultur” means German progress, commercially and financially. German progress is by tariffs and commercial treaties. Her armies, her arms, and her armaments, are to support this “Kultur” and this progress.’
Survey of economic factors leading to the war by American financial journalist Clarence Barron, president of Dow Jones & Co from 1903. Concludes with call for the establishment of an ‘International Tribunal’ following the conflict that can maintain the peace of Europe.
