Mount Pleasant News (Newspaper) - April 12, 1958, Mount Pleasant, Iowa
The it. Pleasant news these Days by George e. Sokol sky getting More mixed l p Emmi v. Hell editor and publisher of a business is an established economist who specializes in finance he has the unusual distinction among experts that he has done As he preached which Means that he seems to be successful in life something that most financial writers Are not they continuing to give advice to All the world but taking not even their own for themselves in addition Elliott Bell has had quite a Public career being for Many years the principal economic adviser to Thomas e Dewey when he governor of new York state. He also the state superintendent of Banks an important position rarely held by a Man of such financial ability and knowledge. Therefore it is Only natural that Elliott Bell should have something to say about the current depression Quot. Neither the president nor anyone else is commander in chief of our economic defences. We have a vast multiplicity of government intermediaries engaged ill credit operations affecting the general Economy wholly without coordination we have a diversity of private institutions engaged Iii major financial operations entirely outside the discipline affecting the commercial banking system and in some cases entirely without any discipline even taxation Quot this. Of course is a Correct picture of the development of Finan Cial institutions and operations a Knotig a tree people it is characteristic of the competitive system that too Many Legal restrictions destroy Competition and Lead to government controls. Elliott Bell Conics up with the idea Quot. Simple common sense indicates we ought at least to have some authority in government that would be responsible for thinking in terms of Overall economic it is characteristic of our people that whenever times become troubled we think of dictators for instance there the Nea and the opa and a whole slew of such organizations. Rent control did prevent landlords somewhat from robbing their tenants during housing shortages but it also produced a shortage of housing which has no yet been corrected and Public housing has barely scratched the surface of our needs. On the other hand had there been free Competition the likelihood is that slum clearance would have been As Swift i As Swift As the conversion of Park Avenue into an office building Canyon Lias been. We really face the same problem Here that faces us concerning the reorganization of our defense department namely even if there Are experts is it Safe in a free society to entrust great Powers to few men or to a single individual not elected by the people not subject to control by Congress How Long can we remain free under such conditions economies can simple and can be Complex. Everyone practices economics when you buy a newspaper. Take a ride on a bus. Buy something on the instalment plan or for Cash put Money in the Bank write a Check do anything about buying Selling spending saving taking wages investing Money and so on you Are engaged in an economic activity and the likelihood is you know what you Are doing. I evil town for instance not built by a theoretical economist nor Rockefeller Center. These Are business enterprises involving entrepreneurs Banks companies contractors engineers architects labor unions Etc. Each one is trying to make some Money out of the Deal meanwhile the buildings go up wealth has been created jobs arc made available our competitive society moves on. In the soviet system such free action is forbidden. The government and party determine what is to be done and practically that Means that All questions become subject to political policy.
