You may know his tariff, but not him.  A look at the man behind the Smoot-Hawley Tariff.  Reed Smoot, Senator from Utah.  His history, his politics, his views on tariffs.  His battles for a mix of conservative issues and progressive stands.  And his battle to keep his own seat from religious intolerance.  

Plus a discussion on tariffs in history and the variety of different historical figures who have positive and negative views of tariffs.
