Truman in his midyear report on the economic state of the nation asserted that a americans today live in a Richer and More productive Economy and Are enjoying its benefits More equitably than Ever before in peacetime the presidents ode to Prosperity sounds startlingly like what was being said 20 years ago. At that time Herbert Hoover told the people a the . Has produced and consumed More goods. ,. In proportion to population than Ever before in its history. Our Standard of living has therefore been the highest in our but the a unprecedented Prosperity eulogized by Hoover was followed in a few years by the greatest economic disaster in our history. Bust followed Boom because production and profits outstripped the buying Power of wage and salary earners. Today at the Peak of the inflationary Boom the same pattern is being repeated. Prices and profits Are skyrocketing while we Ages lag behind. Truman in his report admitted that a temporary props Are sustaining the Boom and that these props cannot be counted on to hold up much longer. Temporary props wobbling prop no. 1�?the stocking up of goods by business and Industry accounted for More than $10 billion Worth of production in the past year. That prop was collapsing even As the presidents report was being issued. Business purchases for stocking up purposes inventory accumulation came to an abrupt end in May and june. Prop no. 2�?is the record breaking Export of american goods abroad. The . Is Selling to foreign countries at the rate of $21 billion amp year. About 10% of its total output. But it is importing less than $8 billion a a year. With their available Supply of dollars dwindling rapidly foreign countries within a few months must Cut Down sharply on their purchases unless they receive new Large scale credits and Loans. Prop no. 3�?is business spending for new construction and equipment. The Dollar value of a this prop at the present time is at a yearly rate of $30 billion. This spending cannot be continued since Industry has All but completed its reconversion program. In addition Ever rising build j ing costs and increased prices for machinery and j equipment will tend first to Brake and then re i Duce the rate of these business expenditures. Worse than 29 a when these three props weaken or collapse the basis of the Boom will be undermined. The inadequate purchasing Power of wage and salary earners cannot maintain the Boom since prices have been rising twice As fast As past 12 months. Now the Price Rise is being accelerated by a new round of increases paced by steel and other Basic industries. And while prices keep on rising production has been easing off. The volume of Industrial production As measured by the Federal Reserve Board was 190 in March. It had declined to 184 in june. Against this background business Ballyhoo about Prosperity simply conceals the dangers that Are multiplying. What is looming up and nothing is being done to prevent the Economy from going into a tailspin has been described As follows by columnist Mark Sullivan a leading big business apologist a the outcome of the present dangers if they Are not arrested would not be a repetition of the 1929 collapse.
