Cleveland believed that the Constitution clearly limited the authority of the president and the federal government, and his economic policies reflected these principles. His stances on major issues such as tariff policy, free silver and the Panic of 1893, and the Pullman railroad strike evince a steadfast commitment to principle over political expediency.
