BY JOHN T. FLYNN (Written tor NEA Service) We have urged n vigorous revlva of-the anti-trust'law lo free enterprise and a cleaning up of the situation In the three great Investmcn industries—building; railroads am utilities—as the first two steps !i a recovery program. • Tiie next step lias to do will spending. First of nil, the govern merit must continue a sane spendln program.' Relief for those In dls tress must be carried on. ,i But money must be spent to pro 'ffcite'Jobs''for persons answering t certain 'description. 1 ;. This kind spending divided Into tw categorles^cutright spending an investment. Outright spending would cove those activities which, while cu lurally;; socially, industrially are wise, arc nevertheless not true investments. That is, those enterprises conducted 'by the government which, -while good "Investments" in the morals, health and peace of the people, nevertheless are not of .such a character that the money expended will ever come buck to the gove'rnriicnt. Conservation, educational, health activities lire of tliis sort. Such spending should be paid for entirely out of tax revenues. . : TAXES SHOULD PAY FOR NON-INVESTMENTS 'Government investments include such contemplate the recovery by the-government of the .money'expended! AA. housing enterprise in wlilcl life cost of the house and the operating costs are so arranged tha the rents, will recover them for the government, is an investment. I Is entirely proper for the govern memVto borrow money for the pur pose of building such .houses pro vided it arranges the finances s as. to get back in .money the sums expended in order ,16 liquidate the bonds:' . • . Therefore we may lay down this pronosition: that the' government shall limit its .borrowing activities to sound economic investments, but that all expenditure; not truly in- vestments.shall,.be. paid for out of .taxes 'and,-with, this principle fixed, shall proceed to balance its budget.
