Don't get me wrong - there are a lot of interesting ideas in the show, but they're just not developed as well as I'd like.
She's not doing it to feed the South. She's doing it to establish better relationships with Union and to make them pour their energies (and capital) into something other than warfare.

I don't know what all her plans are, or how much she'll have to adjust. But I'm pretty sure her endgame is "everyone trading with everyone else and having a lot more interest in keeping doing so than in waging war". And she doesn't mind thinking long term.
