What'i the Matter With
This real trouble is not with business at
all it lief in the minds of t(he people.
For no apparent reason at all, we seem to
' hsve changed suddenly from optimists to
pessimists. And the queer thing about it
Is that we do not know why we changed
"firices have broken," you say. Well
did you not long and pray for lower prices?
Yen knew they could rot remain up where
the war forced them. So just what you.
wanted to happen has happened that's all.
"But wages are being reduced, too,"
someone chimes in. ' ' s
Isn't that perfectly natural, too? When
prices went up, wages followed Wages
must follow prices, now as always.
If one-half the cost of producing an
article is paid for labor, then isn't it clear
that whftp the price of that article Is cnt
from $2 to $1, that the labor cost can be
only 50c, instead of $1. And don't for-,
get that when prices' come down one-half,
a dollar buys twice as much.
We are are merely returning to old
time price levels in all lines, from wages
to limousines. Our dollars are growing
in value every day. We are not hurt a
bit, if we only stop to think.
- When we recognize the truth, the ques
tion of the day will change from "What's
the mattter with tiness" to "Did you
ever see business so good?
Let's wake up out of our nightmare and '
10 forging ahead again. I
