The Incarceration, Adulteration, and Policing of Taxed Goods

(p.299) Chapter Sixteen The Incarceration, Adulteration, and Policing of Taxed Goods
Customs and Excise


Oxford University Press

This chapter begins with a discussion of the incarceration of goods. It shows that incarcerating goods through the new tight Warehousing Act meant excarcerating people: protecting trade from the various hoards that roved along the quays and those employed along the waterfront. The chapter then discusses the adulteration and policing of commodities.
