What problems brought on the tariff debates of 1827 and 1828?

In what way did the South respond to northeastern demands for a higher tariff, and on what did the forces opposed to the tariff base their stand?

Answer

The tariff debate of 1827 and 1828 was mainly brought about by the depression of American industries.
A tax was implemented on foreign goods and that made the nationally produced products much cheaper.
The south was totally unhappy over the taxes implemented.
The raw materials came to the south but the finished product did not have any market.
This tax raised the prices of their finished product.
The people of the south opposed this tax vociferously because it did not benefit them in any way.
