The United States of America
One of the primary issues of the Civil War was slavery, and wars are generally bad for the economy.

It is not only illegal, it is inadvisable as well. Oppressed individuals tend to turn on their masters, even in the best circumstances.
You are, of course, assuming that said slaves are oppressed enough to rebel. If this is not the case, and we have laws to ensure that it isn't, then no problem ensues, and life continues on as normal.
As for your example, the primary issue was secession, not slavery. The war may not have begun at all were it not for South Carolina.
