Sorry, I'm in the money camp and the dire effects of secession on the Northern economy as the cause of the war.
Odd, as I am with the first part of your sentence about the money camp, but more of the effect of losing 4 BILLION dollars worth of human property on the Southern, slaveholding, economy.
During Secession Winter (Dec 1860-March 1861) they were losing millions daily.
Were they? How were they losing "millions daily?"
The only thing that could remedy that was a war to "restore the Union and the Constitution."
Until I know your reasoning and sources for this view, no dice.
The number of BCs had nothing to do with that.
