Tile difference between the e estimates is represented mainly bv the fact that Mr. Morgenthau includes saving, whereas th* committee doe: not confider these inflationary, as they au n< * being urn! to bid up prices and create black markets Furthermore the picture of th* national economy b<*mg bloated with .swollen incomes is abo theoretical The home bill would not allow anyone to keep more than $25,000 after taxes rn 1944 and 1945 Tliere is exec ai net in the hand-of war workers, md there inflation already. But whether ii is caused by the exce-.s money is a question You might just a-. reasonably conclude Hic opposite, and say inflation could be cured by letting prices go higher thus absorbing the excess You might more reasonably conclude that the cause of black market- is government regulations and price ceilings which make it profitable for b otleg-ging of choice food.-, outside legitimate channels.
From another standpoint, prices already are too high when measured against the income of the white collar worker which has not been increased Whichever viewpoint you take leave.-Mr Mcrgenthau high and dry and practically alone in his propo-al to clo-c the gap by taxation.
