The so-called Founding Fathers not only put republican government on a firm footing— something that classical theorists had thought impossible—but also brilliantly recast an ancient debate about the balance of power. But the colonists who are the object of our attention deserve similar credit for advancing a genuinely innovative strategy for promoting communication and mutual trust among so many persons of different regions and backgrounds. Although a few isolated boycotts may have taken place in other countries before this period, the Americans were the first to appreciate the extraordinary capacity of 20 n t h e m a r ket p l ace o f revo lu t i o n ordinary consumer goods—in this case, durables and semi-durables—to bring strangers together in common cause.

38 By 1771 the argument for disjuncture between appearance and reality had become standard fare in the colonial journals. “A Friend of the Colony of Connecticut” explained in the New-Haven Post-Boy that “a large consumption of unnecessary foreign articles . . has given us the false and deceitful appearance of riches, in buildings, at our tables, and on our bodies. ”39 Even as the challenge to British authority intensified and the possibility of armed conflict loomed, Americans still maintained that the imperial crisis was somehow related to their own enthusiastic participation in a new Anglo-American marketplace.
