Historical Context Note


In the USA, the Wilson-Gorman tariff is passed, diminishing the charge levied on imports from the level embodied in the contentious McKinley tariff, and imposing a 2% income tax. President Grover Cleveland had hoped to pass a much lower tariff, and is very disappointed with this result, but allows the law to pass without his signature.
