    The South, being primarily agricultural, opposed tariffs, because, unable to manufacture the goods they needed, had to import them from Europe or buy them from the North. In the view of the South, tariffs made everything more expensive, and thought that there was unequal distribution of the money derived from the imposition of the tariff. The North favored the tariff, believing it protected domestic industries from unfair foreign competition. http://www.answers.com/Q/How_were_northern_views_towards_tariffs_different_from_southern_views
