Mount Pleasant News (Newspaper) - October 16, 1958, Mount Pleasant, Iowa
The it. Pleasant news these Days i to -80 no an first Section 12 pages it. Pleasant Iowa thursday evening october 16, 1958 by George e. Sokolsky the investment by 1957, american private capital had invested about $1,200,000,000 in British manufacturing industries and the increase was showing to to 12 per cent a year. Although this investment is now Large it has been continuously growing since 1856. Prior to that the movement was entirely the other Way around namely that the British were investing freely in american industries Many of oui Mast important ones having been founded by British capital. The 1856 period is set because in that year five partners of the firm of j. Ford and company of new Brunswick. New Jersey set up a i vulcanized rubber Plant in Edin 1 Burgh Money always flows where Money can More readily or More Satis fac i Torilyn be earned. Money has neither conscience nor patriotism but functions mechanically with tile objective of earning More Money. When too much of it flows out of a country it is called a Quot flight of the current flow of american Money to great Britain is evidence that a better return can be obtained on the investment with equal safety or better. Certainly americans can do better in certain phases of Export under British than under american arrangements particularly in dealing with the remnants of the old Empire or the newer Commonwealth. The russians assume that a conflict of economic interests particularly Competition in the Export Market will one Day Force great Britain and the United states and Canada and the United states to part company. This Assumption is based on the theory that capitalism contains the seeds for its own destruction and that one of those seeds is Competition among Capi i taoist nations. It accepts that no Way will Ever be found among these countries to reconcile their differ-1 once but what Are these differences at Best they involve the Sale of commodities identically made often by the same ownership in identical markets in countries for i up to each manufacturer. The competitors of both the United i states and great Britain Are West Germany and Japan in Many lines of Export goods there is no reason Why the soviet Universal state should not successfully enter the Field of heavy machinery exports and that such countries As Poland Czechoslovakia and red China should not in a few years become competitors in Many Fields including Consumers goods in the same Market. Thus the Price Range for identical goods will be enormous Low waged countries having a natural advantage Over higher waged countries. The soviet Universal state which consists of soviet Russia. Red China and All the satellites of each of them in the Field of economics acts on a unified policy generally by Carrier 30 per week by mail $7.50 per year fire insurance rates to go up witching Rod shows Pool of Oil at Wayland caravan schedule announced Wayland news according to Harold my Loran Quot a a s., a a a recognize them a not Many readers will recognize these Henry county school pupils of 70 years ago.

Thus it was possible for Nasser of Egypt to make a political agreement with the Kremlin relating to an Exchange of egyptian Cotton. Most of which went to Poland. For arms planes etc., most of which came from Czechoslovakia. This fact alone gave evidence of an economic Union such As does not exist among the Western Powers. Even the european economic Community. If it functioned most satisfactorily. Could not produce a similar economic strength based on a political agreement. On the other hand an economic Union of the United states and great Britain and the Quot Commonwealth could develop an economic strength which would overcome anything that the soviet Universal state could produce in any reasonable period and would possess the flexibility which is now characteristic of soviet russians invasion of capitalist economics. 1 40 pm the president and mrs.
