Behind The News
18 President Truman got
off the straight, narrow and just
wage-price tightrope at his press conference seminar
on economics. Some hearers thought there was dan
ger he might fall Into the old CIO dustpan, as pure
CIO economic dust was flying thick in the air around
there. .
Some excitement was caused by Mr. Truman's ob
servation that further price increases would bring
more wage Increases. Such a prospect, of course
would be an invitation to step back on the same old
merry-go-round, which , was such a foolish, dlny
whirl that even the CIO abandoned It at least eased
off it In publicity.
My information shows plainly the president meant
this only as a warning and not as an Invitation.
The intent was not at all clear in the news accounts
because the president himself did not make it clear.
The remark was intended to dissuade business from
trying any further increases. In fact the inside
understanding of the whole seminar among those in
the know (Uie number being too few in this case)
was to exert moral suasion. It was definitely not
for the purpose of bestirring again the latent CIO
and OPA economic dust which long since has laid
down and died on the floor. You may accept tills as
But Mr. Truman unfortunately encouraged eco
nomic dust throwing by two other things he did
which are subject to even a greater misinterpretation.
He said it might do some good to rase the anti-trust
act to permit some fair downward price adjustments.
In some few prices, this might help. But the. prices
in these few cases are not the burdensome living
costs so gravely affecting the people in general.
Such action would not affect milk, cream, eggs and
bread. Most people believe Mr. Truman might pos
sibly do a lot more good if he proposed exactly the
opposite course namely more rigid enforcement of
the antitrust laws. They were made to prevent com
binations holding prices high.
HE second time he worked the vacuum trailer in
when he failed to demur to a re
porter's suggestion of the old union argument that
"profits have been greatly increased, sometimes as
high as 300 per cent." No news follower needs to have
this one explained. Just turn over to the stock
market paces. Read the price. See if stocks have
gone up You will find that stock prices have not
gone up to the extent of the cost of living and yet
stock prices are based wholly on current profits and
expectations of profits. Many have gone down lately.
The president's remark on this point was plainly
subject to dangerous misinterpretations, especiolly as
the CIO is trying now at Uijs very moment to needle
another price increase out of steel and autos under
the same delusion. The profits of U. S. Steel and
General Motors are rather open books, and I'm tired
of telling them, but the truth of that situation can
be obscured from the country by Just such propa
ganda as is being fostered out of the press seminar.
Mr. Truman should have been specific because the
price problem is specific. What profits went up 300
per cent? No one mentioned the company or com
panies, or the precise nature of the case in point.
To cite such a generality is to encourage a move
ment which could wreck the country, with more in
flation. Such an increase certainly sounds unjust,
unwarranted and possibly Illegal. He could have
required the reporter who brought the matter up to
cite the specific case. Incidentally also in this way he
could probably have forced that very price down by
intelligent moral suasion publicity.
The overall truth of the matter was not even
mentioned at the supposedly complete economic
seminar, namely that production is the cause of it
ail. When you get production, free enterprise will
operate. Certainly the cost of living will not come
down as long as goods are short and the sellers con
trol the market.
Mr. Truman might have called on his agriculture
department to encourage more production. He might
have called on his bureau of labor statistics to trace
down the real reason why milk, eggs, cream and
bread are higher. He could have ordered his Justice
department to enforce bitterly any unjust com
binations under the antitrust laws which are holding
prices up. He might have done a hundred similar
things which would really help the consumer and
really get prices down.
But. as I say, he got one foot or more off the
tightrope and the CIO dust was flying thickly around
his oval office room.
