Our Economic Status

The fiscal year 1941 has passed
into history. It ended on June 80,
just a few days ago. Economicallj
the picture was not so encouraging

sons, daughters and offspring tc
the 4th or 6th generation.
\ balancing of the books showed
that Uncle Sam had gone into the
red in this fiscal year 1941 for the
eleventh consecutive year. In other
words, speaking in baseball lang
uage, he has lost eleven straight
The national debt now is around
$49,000,000,000. But that is only
the beginning. It is expected tc
reach $56,000,000,000 by the end
of the fiscal year 1942. There is
no longer talk of even approach
ing a balancing of the budget
Money must now be spent for de
fense even more lavishly than it
was spent for social experiment
When all the figures are in (and
they are not completed as this is
being written) it is expected that
the spending in 1941 will in round
numbers approximate $12,600,000.
000. In 1918, during the World
War, the figures was $12,697,000,
000, so there is still a bare pos
sibility that we spent a little less
in 1941, a year of peace, than in
1918, a year of war.
Receipts were up in this fiscal
year of 1941. This wras because of
record breaking income tax collect
ions, due to record breaking in
come tax rates. It is believed that
the receipts were something like
$7,012,000,000. The national in
come for the calendar year 1941 is
expected to > reach $90,000,000.

much economically by the rise

Here is the story of Uncle Sam «■
economic situation, according to the
latest figures. The only trouble
is that the figures are so great the
average man is unable to compre

We all hope that some of the^e
days the time will come when Unde
Sam can balance his books. But
that time is far off. This is in
dicated by the fact we had a $5,000,

an anticipated one of $11,000,000,

Russian soldiers are putting up
