|Abstract: ||John Atkinson Hobson, the most prominent theorist of the New Liberalism, is known as an acute critic of imperialism. This inquiry is the attempt to throw light upon the problem of the coming international order in his ideal, which might take the place of imperialism. At the beginning of a splendid career as a social and economic theorist, he paid attention to the international mobility of capital and labour which was breaking up political obstacles to trade, causing keen competition between countries and giving rise to imperialism and protectionism. He criticized imperialism as a policy of political expansion and protectionism as a policy of commercial contraction and insisted that these policies must give way to the policy of free trade, which Richard Cobden had advocated enthusiastically. According to Hobson, by promoting the worldwide intercourse of persons, goods and information, free trade can lay the foundation of peaceful co-operation between enlightened nations and awaken the instinct for internationalism. Internationalism, thus interpreted, is not opposed to sound and inclusive nationalism, which, instead of pursuing the policy of expansion, engages on the development of resources which are essential for cultivation of national life, attaining political and economic democracy.|
