worst thing that can happen lo Ihe peo ple of a nation I think its no overstatement to say that so farj men with beards are not being as the United Slales is replaced in the Cuban rebel our growing inflalion is the great est of our domestic problems AP Photolnx PISTOL PACKING 1 was set to thinking about this one day recently when I received from Henry M Wrislon a booklet containing a talk before the American Assembly an adjunct of the Columbia University Grad uate School of Business headed by Doclor Wrislon distinguished ex president of Brown University With the booklet was this little personal note by Wrislon I think you will find this of particular In this right Ive speni an evening or two with the pre sentation called Monetary Pol icy and the Threat of Inflation and Id like some of the insights into the disquieting prob lem provided by Arthur F Burns professor of economics at Colum bia and President ofthe National Bureau ofEconomic Research IN LAYING the foundation for his broad case Doclor Burns for mer chairman of Ihe Presidents Council of Economic Advisors of fered this observation concerning the importance of his subject Even if it proceeds at a gentle pace inflation works hardships over the years on school teachers civil servants and many olher millions of unorganized workers addjtions to tlle forces such as this comely lass wonl hurt the appeal of the

savings of peo ple in every income group of our society but especially the savings of people of modest incomes who have neither the means nor the knowledge to arrange their invest mcnls so as lo reduce or escape he toll of These injustices of Doctor Burns added arc as ob vious as Ihey are serious But con tinued inflation not only mars a nalions it may also endanger it by striking more di rectly at its HERE some further facts we should have in mind about inflation as we proceed into our visit about the subject 1 Inflation distorts the accounts of business firms and thereby crcales at times an illusion of profits when in fact capital is be ing consumed This is undoubted ly happening in some of our cor porations 2 Inflation reduces the nation ability to sell in foreign markets The recent Joss of gold shouk serve to remind us lhal whil our stocks of gold remain verj ample it would be imprudent lo assume lhat we will necessarily escape a balanceof paymenl problem a few years from
