Ills remedy ior this Is a tax cut on la- comes but 10 per cent, on capital or properly. To .'ollovr what ho regards as ihe evils of tho income tax, he argues that a great deal of bullJIos and coctruciive work In held up be- cause those who own real estate required will not sell it creu at tho prices offered, because they would have to pay most ol the profit realised to the Government.' In iho stock Mr. Price says securi- ties hive advanced to figures that are many cases absurd, because ihe larger capttal'ats cancot. dispose of their holdings without incurring an in- come lar liability that1 would absorb most of Iheir gains. Referring to rtio effort o! such a tax: on his own country Mr. Price says, "In 1914 our national wealth was estimated ai two huudred and fifty billion dollars.
