TUESDAY, NOVEMBER 1, 1949 THE NATION TODAY— Hoffman of EC A Wants Europe To Use Basic American Policy To Spur Trade Between Nations By James Marlow WASHINGTON, Nov. 1. (;Pj—Europe must "unify its economy." That Is what Paul Hoffman, head of the Marshall plan, has Just told Europe. Tins Is a rough explanation of his meaning. Ttie problem is not simple. The Marshal Plan, due to end In I95a, has helped Europe recover. What may happen after the plan-s ncip ends? Will Europe stumble, stagger and collapse? * . ' Unless it's convinced Europe Is f*i D i A • making a strong effort to help it- '••nance rurchase Brings self after 1952. Congress may start Old Army Field Jafkft eultinB down the plan before then. R , JL ,~' a . ° So Hoffman tells Europe to "mil- °°CK to Ungmal Owner fy It-s economy." To understand what lie has In mind, first look at the United Stales of America. Adam E. Rider, 39, a carpenter, The 48 states all use the same bought a field lacket at an Army irplus store yesterday. Inside the collar was money. None limits what another Aican send into ie. Trade moves IWicross state lines as if they didn't exist. Since the 48 states have about 150.000.000 people, that's a terrific market for sales in any line. To win that market, the various manufacturers have to compete against one another by selling as cheaply as they can. That means learning how to make their products as cheaply as possible. The efficient ones prosper, the inefficient go out of business. ,L..,^ t ..v BU u>,v U i UUSUII-M. Judge Upholds Averages The thinking behind the Amerl- In Dealina With Imbiber m svstem is this: Rv Kplline at ' y " " '<"*" D « can system is this: By selling at the lowest possible price, through efficient production, you sell to more people The more you can sell, the more Torbert. 50 , you want to turn out since it means more profit for you.

Market la Limited That Increases employment — which means more people with money to spend—and, in turn, creaks more customers. And ihe mou: things people can buy lhat they want, the higher their standard of living. Although America has 150,000,000 people, all potential customers for American goods moving freely, Hoffman says Europe has 270,000,000 rjeople, potential customers for European goods. But— In Europe goods don't move free• ly. There the set-up is different. To see how different, Imagine an ^America like this: P^ The 48 states sre separate and ' independent. Each has Its own money: New York with the dollar, New Jersey with the franc, and so state has Its own army, on. Each language and national traditions going back hundreds of years. Over those years ach state has tried to be self-sufficient, more or less. To protect the producers from outside competition, each state has set up barriers to make It hard for goads from another state to gel in. How? By such devices as tariffs New Jersey and . and quotas. For example: New York manufacturers turn out hats worth $5. To protect its hat- makers. New..York has a tariff of S10 on New Jersey hats sold In New York. So in New York a hat sells for $5 but the same $5 New Jersey hat sells In New York for $15. Or, as an example of the quota system: New York won't let in more than 100 New Jersey hats a year Such a quota, plus the tariff, makes It pretty tough for New Jersey hat- makers to sell in New York. So, with all these obstacles to Interstate trade, the manufacturers In each state turn out their goods mainly for the people of their own state. That limits the market and ^the Incentive to produce. ^" If New York, say, has 10,000,000 people while all 48 have 160,000,000 the New York hatmaker is missing a potential market of $140.000,000. Mass Production Discouraged Since his market is comparatively small and competition from outside manufacturers Is cut off. the New York manufacturer doesn'l produce on a mass basis. So his production costs are higher. . He'd have to be more efficient producing more cheaply, if he were competing against hntmakers in all 43 slates. But—doesn't he have to compete against other Ncw York hntmnkers to capture the New York trade? Not if the Ncw York halmakero make deals, dividing up the New York market among themselves so all of them can stay In business This helps the Inefficient hatmaker. _ He stays in business, his prices stay •UP- W This picture of the 48 slates Is crudely, the picture of modern Europe, So when Hoffman tells Europe to "unify its economy," he's urging a European economic set-up like lhat of the United States: elimination of trade barriers, competitive production for 270.000.000 Europeans instead of the people of jitst one nation and the Jobs and efficiency he thinks that would mean, plus a straightening out of the tangled European rroncy system. Hoffm.n is talking of on economic Europe like the United States. He's hot suggesting they all form one government. That might come later or have to follow.
