Why Group Fights Group
America is suffering from a lack of
economic understanding. It Is, there
tore, that we tlud group arrayed

producer with tho consumer and both

lack of economic understanding that
we And capital and labor frequently

element la vitally Interested In each
other for the final auccsea of thn en

a prime crop and getting a fair re
turn; In the canner packing a palata
ble crop and getting a fair return; In
the carrier transporting without dam
age or deterioration and getting a
fair return; In the wholesaler making
a wide distribution and gottlng a fair

customer and getting n fair return;
In labor aiding each ot tho procosscs

THE HIGH COST
QF CHEAP MONEY
Widows and Orphans Among
Chief Losers From Unsound
E.E. AGGER CITES EXPERIENCE
Speculators Rather Than Inves-,
tors and Producers Win From
Tho losses nnd co4s borno by tho
government nnd tho people of thoj
United States from unsound money'
exporlmonta, from colonial timua
down, doubtless total moro than our
staggering World War approprla-1
tlons, It Is declared by E. E. Agger,
an authority on economics, In the
Journal of tho American Bankers' As-'
Boclatlon. "Choap money," he says,
la very costly, slnco frenzied flnanco,'
speculation nnd business disaster
have Invariably followed In tho wnko
of unsound currency. IIo cites his
torical experlenco showing that wid
ows and orphans wero among the
"New generations of adults, like
children, havo to learn over and over
again that, when playing with flro,
ono runs tho risk of being burnod,"
Mr. Agger Bays. "Indulging curren
cy horosles constitutes such an adult
playlng-wlthilro. A glunco ovor our
own historical experience would donf
onstrnto this to the most ardent 'easy
money' ndvocato, but such advocatea
nro usually thoso to whom history is
Soft Money Advocates Seek Profit
"Unfortunately thoso who are will
ing to kindle tho kind of conflagra
tion involved In 'soft-money' experi
mentation are not the only ones hurt.
Indeed, they may extort an ndvan
tngo for themselves. Hut tho record
la all too clear concerning tho mass
of peoplo. Heavy losses, injustice,'
uiBorgnnueu production anu numer
ous other evils are inevitable.
"Unsound money projects Impose
heavy costs on the government Itself.
Tho Unit effect of cheap money Is to
ralso prices. Mounting prices mean
thnt, to meet its needs, tho govern
ment must appropriate always larger
sums. Again, dallying with unsound
money weakens tho govornmefit'8
credit. Prospective bond buyers be
come hesitant when currency depre
ciation Is threatened, because thoro la
danger of agitation toward tho pay
ment of government obligations In th4
cheaper money rnJicr thati In specie
Any such weakening of goverment
credit moans lower prices received for
bonds, consequently greater burdens
on the Treasury. Assuming that, In
the end. sound principles triumph, tho
Indulgences of the unsound currency
days leave further costs to bo met.
If paper money has been Issued it
must be red omed If a government
bo unwilling to stoip to repudiation
it must raise much more In taxes to
pay for the paper money than It ro
eelved at the time of issue."
Tho total effect of paper issues in
increasing the coat of tho Civil War la
estimated at about 5600,000,000, Mr.
Agger says, continuing
"Much more serious than tho costs
ot unsound currency to tho govern
ment nro the heavy direct and Indi
rect costs Imposed upon tho people.
Our productive system U controlled
through prices, and the upset ot prices,
caused by a deprecating currency, in
terferes with tho proper harmonizing
of the different linos of production.
Prlco changes are not Instantaneously
or uniformly effected throughout the
whole system. Tho result ot an In
flationary movemeut Is a stimulation
of speculation and over-Investment In
some lines, with inadequate develop
ment in other lines. The period ot
speculation seems a period of prosper
ity, but how falso and unsound Is such
prosperity Is disclosed In tho stress
and agony ot tho Inevitable period ot
liquidation which, Nemesis-like, fal
lows on the heola of the boom."
Wealth Unfairly Re-dlstrlbuted
Mr. Agger then describes "tho dis
tressing effects ot an unsound money
on the distribution ot wealth among
classes and Individuals. Cheapening
money through Inflationary expedi
ents Is a glgautlc fraud upon tho cred
itor classes as agulnst debtors. All
thoso dependent on fixed lucomos, or
receiving spocltled sums In terms ot
money, are penalized when tho 'pur
chasing power of money Is depressed.
In like manner the stockholder profits
at tho expense of the bondholder- a
fact which Implies a reward to tho
moro speculatively Inclined at tho ox
panso of tho conservative.
"Advancing price causo discontent
and glvo rise to njtatlon nnd unrest
among thoso whoso Incomes cannot
promptly be adjusted to meet higher
living costs. Str.kos aro fomented
and production Is curtailed. Every
body shares In theso burdens. Lack
of Btnblllty In money also undern.n s
,md weakens habits of thrift. A cor
rosion of tho moral Integrity of tho
people Is Inevitable Dishonesty la
stimulated uud a desire to gain by
speculation rather than to eurn a llvo
lllmt; 1 by prnducM'c- and useful labor
causes a marked deterioration In pop
alar habits and character."
