Crash of Farm Prices Stalls Eco
' nomic Recovery Explains
WARSAW (UP) The good bar-
vest this year, oddly enough,. Is the
one factor which dims anotherwise
pleasing pictureof Poland's economic
recovery since 1935.
In erplaining this unusual situ
ation, it is pointed out that the abun
dant crops will result in low prices
to farmers tand, in turn, they will
have lower purchasing power as
far as the cities are concerned.
' One of the most serious questions
facing the government today is that
of lowered agricultural prices. Farm
ing supports about 70 per cenf of
the population and a decrease in the
purchasing power of this number will
seriously affect urban buying.
The great economic crisis lasted
longer in Poland than In other coun
tries, improvement beginning in
Polish agriculture only toward the
end of 1935. And for such an agri
cultural nation the position of agri
culture is decisive. Following the
improvement, at the beginning of
1936, came the large-scale invest
ment program for Polish industry
designed by the present vice pre
mier and finance minister, Eugenlusz
Industrial Rise Began
"The industrialization of Poland"
became a slogan. Extension of Polish
armaments and concentration of this
Industry in a "security triangle" in
the center of the country contributed
considerably to the industrial rise of
Final recovery from the drastic
effects of the long crisis came for
Poland with the rise in agricultural
prices on the world market, the de
velopment of exports of farm prod
ucts eggs, meat, butter and bacon
and the French armaments loan of
Currency control, in addition
saved the previously dwindling gold
reserves of the Bank of Poland.
According to the latest reports the
number of unemployed in Poland has
declined more than 60 per cent since
1936 to about 300.000 in a total
population of about 34,000,000.
Investments Rise Sharply
In his last speech Vice Premier
Kwiatowski estimated that produc
tion of Polish industry in the first
half of 1938 exceeded that of the
same period in 1937 by about 8 per
cent. "Investments in industry for
1938 are 48 per cent ahead of 1937
a record figure.
Now unfortunately the world price
for agricultural products has fallen
heavily as a result of an unusually
bounteous harvest in Poland, Canada;
the Argentine, and other wheat ad
rye exporting countries. The re
sult of the Polish harvest has not
been announced, but it is known that
it far exceeds the needs of the do
mestic market and that a heavy over
supply will glut on the domestic
market. The price of the chief prod
uct of Poland agriculture, rye, has
fallen to $22.60 for 100 killograms
A year ago this price was about $42,
and even in the worst crisis of 1932
and 1933 it was not recorded below
State aid for rye products, credits,
export bounties and so on may im
prove the situation. Large purchases
for military reserves also should re
lleve the market. But up to the pres
ent prices have not risen.
