All eyes are now searching for evidences of the
recovery the nation feels is imminent. One of the
best indicators are the statistics showing production
and sales of electric power.
It would be hard to find a more accurate baro­
meter. When factories open, when men are put to
work, when the wheels of industry get back into their
old swing, power production soars. Every year sees
definite advances in the degree of electrification of
industry in general, and more and more large indus­
tries, which once produced their own electricity, are
buying it from utility systems which offer better and
more dependable service at an equal or lower cost.
Toward the end of last year and the beginning
of this, power sales strengthened, and it was heralded
by qualified observers as being one of the best signs
of the moment. Keep on watching the figures. We live
in the electric age—and the rise and fall in electric
use by industry follows almost exactly the rise and
fall of the business cycle.
