Excerpt from A Project of Empire: A Critical Study of the Economics of Imperialism, With Special Reference, to the Ideas of Adam Smith The question of imperial defence has suddenly become of pressing importance, and has directed public attention to other aspects of imperial union. The object of the present book is to reconsider the economic problems involved in their due order and proportions. And first of defence: So long as this country could maintain the undisputed command of the sea we could afford to wait in case of need for the aid of the overseas dominions. But recent events have shown that this country ought no longer to attempt to provide from its own resources for the naval defence of the whole empire; and in a great naval war there would be no time to call up the ultimate or potential reserves of men and money from the ends of the earth. The self-governing colonies have grown into self-conscious nations, and the recent conference has shown that they recognise that the primary duty of every nation is to provide for its own defence against foreign attack.
