  14. A is correct. Tariffs on imports are adopted so that local goods are less expensive than foreign goods.

  15. The US was hardly in a position to weaken the British economy. British trade was world wide at the time and just their trade in the West Indies, or East Indies for that matter, overwhelmed any trade they had with the USA. They liked getting wood for ships and masts and tar and pitch etc from her though.
