The federal government has
pursued a policy of competi
tion witfci private business, that
has prevented the spending of
billions of private capital.
The federal government has
pursued a fiscal policy which,
long enough continued, must

continuously put off the day

In brief, government has in f
late years tended to he <tlfl

that belong properly in the
sj(iiere of private eii.erpise in
a democratic nation.
wnat can me aone to remeuy
thii The answer is plain—and
ii has been given many times
by men prominent in finance,1
in industry, in journalism, and
in the government it-olf.
First, business' must be re
assured—and that means that
jft must be convinced that it
will) be permitted, under the
American sywtem of free enter
prise, to carry on its functions
without bureaucratic dictation,
and earn a reasonable profit
from its tabors.
Second, it is as^ential that
Congress take the necessary
steps to remove from the bent
jback of ihdus^ry, the capital
gains and the surplus profits
taxes which are often called
"taxes without a. friend."
Third, business must be en
couraged to spend in channels
that create wealth, income and
employment. For example, it is
estimated that if the much
discussed ‘‘ peace pact ” be
tween the Administration and
the utilities is reached, the
electric industry will spend a
bullion or; more annually for
improvement and expansion.
