Georg Friedrich List (6 August 1789 – 30 November 1846) was a German-American economist who developed the “National System” of political economy.

He advocated imposing tariffs on imported goods while supporting free trade of domestic goods, and stated the cost of a tariff should be seen as an investment in a nation’s future productivity.
