In many cases there has been a ten- dency to blame banks and-banklng for the situation, because customers have not taken the trouble to look beyond the banks lo the international trade developments which are at the root o the high .exchange rate. "In order to arrive at a clear under standing of these developments, 11 I necessary to bear in mind'the tunda mental truth that eichange Is some thing which must be bought before i be sold and that United State luuus are just as much an article o commerce as-United Slates oranges.

"The law of supply and demand, which governs the price of all commo- dities, applies equally to exchange.
