SOLVING THE TAX PROBLEM
"Taxation that will permit business to function 100 per
cent" is to be the theme of a conference at San Francisco
the latter part of this month. The conference is called by
the western division of the United States Chamber of Com
merce. Presumably other conferences of similar nature
will be held throughout the country.
What is taxation that will give business its 100 per cent
opportunity? Is it taxation that will lighten the load on
small home owners? On earners of small incomes? On
farmers? On all the producers in order that with light
eaed burdens they may become better customers of busi
ness men? . I
Or is the taxation that will "permit business, to function
Ifflo per cent"1 thought of in the terms of business only? Of
business exemption? Of business evasions? Of longer
profits and less share in the cost of government?
The call for the conference on taxation does not answer
these questions. It recites:
The board of directors of the Chamber of Commerce
of the United States has felt that the issue of taxation is
one of the most vital now confronting the welfare of the
A solution of the tax issue, then, it logically follows, is
one that will promote the welfare of the entire country. If
organized business addresses itself to the problem in a
broad way, and does not conceal covert political design, it
has a 100 per cent opportunity to serve the public. Oregon
