The spirit of a entrepreneurship is. For the time being stifled. Beginning and Smalt companies cannot Hope to raise Money in the lifeless new issues Market where five years ago speculators begged for a share of any new Stock who will buy the Stock of an untested outfit when the likes of Chrysler Ford and general motors find it difficult to Market their shares some Large companies complain in fact of a capital shortage. Small business also finds itself frustrated in the credit markets where Loans Cost considerably More than the prime rate which is now up to io34 per cent. Charges of 15 per cent Are More common for Small business corporate mergers which proliferate when the Market is Active Are at a very Low ebb. A company with a once earnings multiple of five Isnit inclined to use its Stock to buy another company. Of As was fairly common a few years ago. Its multiple was 25 a meaning investors were willing to pay 35 times earnings for a share a a company could obtain a real bargain by using those shares to buy a smaller concern but the average be ratio of All stocks in the Dow Jones average of 30 industrials was 9.7 at the close of last week. A year ago the ratio was 13 7 times earnings and just a few years ago around 18 moreover those Cash Rich companies that were so attractive to merger minded conglomerates in 1968 Are far less common today. Few Well run concerns Are inclined to borrow Money at High rates when they can use their own Cash Hows Are being pinched just As they Are in households none More dramatically than at consolidated Edison the big new York Utility that omitted a quarterly dividend for the first time in 89 years when something of that sort happens it flies above the Money Market Uke a red storm Flag. Fear spreads that other utilities might do the same. And so Utility prices have fallen sharply in the past week. The Effort by the Federal Reserve Board to Cut Down inflation does appear to be having an Impact. Some businesses Are being forced to curtail activities thus relieving some inflationary pressure. But Many other businesses continue to seek Money for expansion and so far not even the highest interest rates of this Century seem to deter them.

The first act of a familiar Post world War ii drama has just been played out in Lisbon where a durable dictatorship has been overthrown because of those factors. Forces Long persecuted Are becoming Legal and Active. Political prisoners Are being freed. Political exiles Are welcomed Home political parties Are beginning to operate. All this probably will make the Issue of colonialism More divisive than Ever. Portugal a new military rulers imply that they intend to prosecute the colonial wars in their vast african Empire Mozambique in the Southeast and portuguese Guinea and Angola in the West while trying to reach accommodation with the rebel forces.

France attempted to reassert domination in Indochina. The Southeast asian Arm of the French Empire. She offered Vietnam Cambodia and Laos autonomy in a French Union but it was half Freedom and the rebel movements buy it. Indochina bled France severely in manpower and Money contributing to the political and economic turmoil that brought Down French governments almost weekly. The decisive defeat at Dien Bien Phu 20 years ago this month persuaded the French to Cut their losses and get out of Indochina. But the French still tried to hold on to Algeria. Once again a guerrilla War had corrosive effects on the Home front it took a Leader with overwhelming stature and flair for authoritarianism a do gauge a to set Algeria free despite the threat of civil wat at Home and then dismantle the rest of Frances huge afcan Empire. Belgian and dutch experiences were similar in Many respects. The Netherlands was expelled from the dutch East indies after bloody fighting. Belgium was forced to retire from her Rich Congo. Britain also had to dismember her mighty Empire. But the British moved out without fighting and left behind painstakingly constructed bureaucracies which could take Over administrative duties. All this makes it seem that the Era of colonialism at last has died. Portugal oldest of the Modem colonial Powers after 400 years is the last to try to cling to a huge Empire.
