He termed the present business recession "temporary and artificial." It was not a set-back, he said, but u "pause before another climb," "No one," he said, "need look at next year with any uncertainty." Ford referred to the tux on surplus earnings as "a move on the part of certain exponents of an out- of-date financial system to control industry." "Our lawmakers may not know this," ho went on, "but that's the way it works." He explained that without surplus business could not expand without borrowing. "In most instances," he said, "the borrowing must be made of financial interest that demand control of business as the price of their loans." "The tlnitod States will not be drawn into another World War," he said, "because there are 2,000,000 well-educated veterans here who know the futility of such conflict."
