Business psychology has been given a leading role In administration analyses of the cause ol the economic downturn that has been in progress since last fall. The official making the observation wouldn't permit identification, but he ticked off some of the "combination of 'actors" he said had '"orked to effect a comparatively quick shift away from pessimism in business sentiment. The surprise appearance of orders for an increased quantity of goods, necessitating in turn the increasing of production by irany concerns that had curtailed output earlier. Tax Policy a Factor President Truman's announcement against more taxes, confirming the no-tax expectation generated previously by Congress. Also, easy credit [wlicies and the inla- tionary effects of deficit financing by Government. Confidence catching hold from the firm recent climb of the stock market as "buyers came to the conclusion they (stocks) were bargains" and should be bought before their nrices went up. Nevertheless the official did not siiy .hat the "changed altitude" would necessarily reverse the downtrend 'n business, although he was sure it would be a strong force in so doing if it persists. Traditionally, as his remarks implied, when businessmen think business is going lo get worse—leaving them stuck with high cost goods In a period of decline—they order less from manufacturers, causing the latter t° cut production and lay off workers.
