"Sell Abroad or Wither at Home'
Says Redfield Authority in
Exports and Imports
Nation Cannot Consume Its Own
Production Physical and Moral
By William C. Redfield
Editor's Note William C. Red
field was Secretary of Commerce un
der President Wilson and is now the
chairman of the board of the Nation
al Manufacturer's Export association.
His knowledge of the need of an ac
tive and world-wide export trade is
based on investigations carried on
for years both as one of the leaders
in the Wilson administration and as
the lead as the world's greatest pro
life is given to furthering the move
ment to place the United States in
the lead as hie world's greatest pro
ducing and export nation.
China once adopted a policy and
under it she crumbled to a spineless
bulk that at one time threatened
death to her as a nation and her peo
ple as a race.
Thousands of American citizens to
day are asking why we do not adopt
a similar policy, asking this question1
even in the halls of legislation and;
among the units of our commercial!
Is the United States sufficient unto
itself? Can it draw about its shores j
a Chinese wall that would exclude
not onlv immigration and the ex-'
change of relationship but would
wipe from the seas the import and
export trade and turn inward all the :
powers and possibilities of her
Dressed in glittering generalities, j
bedecked in false conception of pro
gress, tricked out in brilliant but
empty phrases of selfish patriotism
grounded on false logic, the cam-'
paign has been carried on since the
time, scores of years ago, when our
unthinking citizens brought shame:
to true Americans as they boastfully
shouted before a contemptuous Eu-
hope, "America can lick the world.";
Leaving aside the obvious fact that
there are many things we cannot pro- j
duce in the United States and that
our necessary purchases of these
abroad can be most conveniently cov
ered by sending our goods in return,
are there no cogent reasons which
make a foreign market for our pro
ducts a matter of necessity?
Three Great Staples.
At least three great commodities
spring to our thought when this ques
tion is raised. These are cotton
wheat and copper. We have never
consumed, nor can we consume, any
thing like the quantities of these
which we produce. Shall we produce
less, therefore, or shall we sell the
surplus we always have in the only
availabe markets, which are the for
eign markets? The question answers
itself. It is, we at once see, vital to
the prosperity of agricultural and
mining interests that we have a large
and steady foreign market for these
commodities. The home of every
farmer and miner is directly affected
by the conditions in our export trade
This foreign commerce has neither
been large nor steady in recent
months and the result appears in ev
ery copper mining town and on every
cotton plantation and wherever wheat
is grown. None are so foolish as to
say that an export market is not es
sential to the prosperity of both the
capital and the labor concerned in
the production of cotton, copper and
But these three are in some degree
typical of others. We sell abroad
such commodities as lumber, oil and
steel, and each in different forms or
states of manufacture. Why are they
sold abroad? Is it because there
is no sufficient market for them at
home? Is it not, therefore, also true
that the steady employment of labor,
the regular return upon capital both
require that a foreign market shall be
found for the products which they
jointly make, and that it is certain
that capital cannot continuously earn
and labor be continuously employed
unless such markets are found for
any surplus over the consuming cap
acity of our own country?
Leaving these major items, which
some might say were selected ones,
we find that before the war there had
been a steady growth in our export
sales of partly or fully finished manu
factures until these had become the
largest elements in our outward for
eign business. Why was this so?
The foreign markets are not usually
those in which excessive prices can
be had and therefore it is hardly true
that our manufacturers sold these
goods to the value of many hundreds
of millions of dollars yearly in other
lands in order to make a larger profit
upon them than could be made at
home. On the contrary everyone fam
iliar with the subject knows that be
fore the war our industrial output
had become so large that our own
markets could not continuously ab
sorb it when the factories ran full
time. Therefore, the alternative was
to find a market in other countries
or to shut down in whole or part for
a portion of the time. In other words,
manufacturers knew that if they
would run steadily they must find
foreign markets for a portion of the
goods they made. Everyone v?ho
gives the subject thought knows, also
that during the war in this country,
as in all other indusrial ones, the
capacity of dur plants was greatly
increased. This increase varied in
different industries, but the demands
of the Allies and later of our own
forces covered substantially 11 the
wants of man and it is therefore true
that some increase in productive cap
acity was well nigh universal. In
certain industries the increase was
large; more than a few entirely new
factories were constructed.
The war is over. These new and
enlarged plants are here and some at
least are idle, while others are work-

ing but part time. Capital is invested
in them. The men who own this cap
ital would like to employ labor to the
full capacity of these plants in order
that they may earn interest on their
investment. The men who are out of
work today would also like to be em
ployed in these plants in order that
they may earn food and clothing for
their families. How shall this em
ployment be provided? Can orders
be found in the United States in
these times sufficient to keep these
plants moving? Everyone knows that
they cannot. Can orders be found at
any time in the United States suffi
cient to keep all these plants moving
jteadily at their full capacity? Every
one knows that this also cannot be
done. We could not consume the
product of these plants continuously
before they were enlarged. Now that
they are greatly grown we are much
less able to absorb all their products.

tional consumption to grow up to the
national industrial production and
until our home consumption shall
equal our home production, markets
must either be found abroad or the
plants must operate part time or run
at reduced production. This is in
exorable as fate; so certain as gravi
It is easy to see the process in its
details. A great plant in a city of
the central west, employing some
thousands of men, is idle. Far in a
distant land a skilled industrial offi
cer negotiates a large order for the
product of that plant with a foreign
government. Forthwith the plant
springs to life. Thousands of men
find productive toil. Their families
are able to purchase needed supplies
and clothing, and business revives
In still another land a great muni
cipality requires a large lot of Amer
ican apparatus. Necessary arrange
ments being made for the financing
of the order, it is placed in another
city in the central west. At once the
same process appears. Men go back
to work and their families are once
more able to buy. In a different
continent a large eastern manufac
turer finds business sufficient to keep
his works moving full time when
others are all but idle. On the other
hand, a large concern finds that it
has productive capacity beyond its
selling power. This country cannot
consume the entire product and cir
cumstances are such that foreign
markets are not found. Forthwith
dullness settles on the plant. Men
are discharged; their wages cease.
At last, in order to supply the limited
market which does exist, such a con
cern offers for sale the machinery
which has been producing on its
floors rather than undertake the ex
pense of manufacturing a limited
quantity of new machinery. Here is
seen the process of actually reducing
the productive capacity of the coun
try for lack of markets.
If the basic proposition is plain, a
long step is taken toward the solu
tion of co-ordinate problems. Do the
American people yet understand that
their prosperity is inextricably linked
with the export trade? If they do
understand this fact, they will be
guided accordingly in all matters col
lateral thereto. If they do not under
stand this fact, it is high time it was
swer would be in the negative.
"What a peety," he would add, "I
would ha' played ye a tune."
At last the occasion arose, as it
was bound to do, when to his oft-repeated
query, "Hev ye got a fiddle?"
came the eager response, "Yes, we've
got a fiddle."
But Sandy was equal to the occa
sion. "So ye've got a fiddle," said
he, stroking his chin, "and a fiddle's
a grand thing to hev!" Edenburgh

as boys we realized that work was a

own efforts, equaled a living. But
today the country is full of agitators

a man has to do is to go and take it
