Not only the government of each country, bnt all producers, should immediately execute all measures tributlng t» full resumption of peaceful industry, to encouragement of better output by workers everywhere,, to improvement of machinery and transportation and removal of such disturbing factors as profiteering. 3. Each government should immediately consider means for urging upon all nationals suppression of extravagance ond reduction of expenditures, so as to bridge the gap between demand and supply of essential commodities. Credit and Expenditures. 4. Early, steps should be taken to deflate credit and currency — first, by the reduction o£ recurrent government expenditure within revenue limits; second, by the imposition of such additional taxation as" is necessary; MAJ.
