Inhaltsangabe: Excerpt from The Key of the Pacific: The Nicaragua Canal
The late war in the Far East, the inevitable opening up of China, the approaching completion of the Siberian Railway, and the certain cutting of the Nicaragua Canal, constitute one of the greatest revolutions in the worlds history. These will be followed by a new adjustment of international relations, and a fresh distribution of the worlds trade. The present volume deals with one of the chief aspects of this revolution.
As a pioneer of commerce in Burmah, Indo-China, China, and South Africa, as explorer, administrator and, special correspondent, my constant aim has been to aid in opening up fresh markets on the fringes of our empire. I have long held the view that the true policy for this country is to foster and develop the existing trade with our colonies and possessions, and to open up entirely new markets, and I have done what I could, on the platform i and in the press, to awaken the country to the importance of this line of action.
This policy I believe to be necessary, not only to benefit the merchant, the manufacturer, and the working man, but as affording the main remedy for the depression of trade, and the true solution of the pressing problem of the unemployed.
