TUESDAY, SKl'TKJtBER 12, 193<J BLYTHEVILLg, (ARK.) COUKIER NEWS Warring Nations Begin To Borrow; Reich's Tax System Scored The mystifying spectacle of a supposedly bankrupt Europe indulging itself in the "luxury" cf war is explained in thls'ex- cluslvc arlicle by John T. Flynn, noted audicr-economist. * * *, By JOHN T. FLYNN IV'ilttcii (or NBA Service) NEW YORK, Sept, 11.—Europe lias just started on what is about the most expensive form of activity man can find—war. We have all kno-in lor s:me time that Europe is prclly close to being busted—at least some of her tin-' portant countries are that way. I All cf these countries owe more lhan they can pay. All of those countries which fought in 191.1 nB( to repudiate the debts of that wai one way or another. Nav they are embarked on an ollier war. And the puzzling question to the mnn in the street is: "What arc they goitiff to use for money?" Germany lias given a partial an- s'.vcr to (hat in the last few days. She has increased the income taxes on even the lowest brackets to 50 per cent. Remember, in the United States the income tax on Incomes up to 51000 is 4 |ier cent. In Germany it is 50 per cent since the war started. What it will be presently I do not yet know. How would y:u like to hand over half of your wages to thc government? TWO FINANCIAL KOADS TO WAll There arc only two ways lo pay the costs of war. One is with taxes. Thc other is with borrowed money. At the present time Europe has raised taxes so high to keep going her efforts against; collapse during the depression and to supp:rl her war industries, that it is literally WHERE THE WORLDS MONETARY GOLD IS TODAY E«H com Moaooaooo WOUTOOF MO«T«YSOI* impossible to get tlie way of taxes. much more iu We may he sure, therefore, lhal Euronc will begin at once to borrow money. England, in fact, has already authorized a loan of 2,500,000,000 pounds—which is ten billion d:liars—a tidy sum for 11 beginning. How will European countries borrow? There arc several ways to do this. One is to borrcw from the peo- plc^seil them liberty bonds or "save democracy" bonds. The other is to borr,:w-IjronY the' banks. Trie effect in each case' is quite different. HOW THE I'EOl'LE PAY FOIl WAJl There are l»o ways to borrow from the people. One is to ask them ID buy bonds voluntarily, or for that matter involuntarily, as Mussolini did tivo years ago when he forced. everybody to buy bonds up tj ten per cent of their capital holdings. Tlie other way is to seize their external Investments. Englishmen, Germans, Frenchmen nil own large amounts of stocks and bonds of ether countries and of industries in oilier countries. Suppose an Englishman owns a share of U. 3. Steel stock. The government can order him to turn that stick over to thc Treasury. In return it will give him an English bond for thc value of Ills stock. , vi'iieii that is done the government owns a share of U. S. Steel Bt:ck and thc Englishman p'*ii5 an bngnsh oond, which means he has loaned the government that much money. Thc government now has a share of stock in an American corporation. H can send that share to New York and scil it on uio Stock Exchange for the current price and use that m:ncy to buy things it needs in the United sfatcs. England has about $7,000,000,000 of such securities in various countries, I do not have at hand the holdings of Germany, France. But Germany lias already taken over tiic external investments cf her people and England has already issued a decree making a start at doing t.Iie same thing."
