Grouped _ together, what they own as against what they owe puts them more than one trillion dollars in the black. That's how much their assets exceed their liabilities. In fche business world, the excess is called net worbh and is one of the. key 'barometers used • to measure a corporation's financial health. Every time business begins to level off some people start worrying about fche financial condition of consumers. They fear the na- casns are the best money managers in the world."

This prediction was based upon the assumption , that goal of the program 90 per cent of parity The prospect of such a .change in the meat situation was painted by -the Agriculture Department in a recent study on the costs and effects of a payment program of aiding farmers. The department said use of payments across the board for most farm products would cost taxpayers between 7 and 10 billion dollars a year compared with about two billion dollars for .present farm price support programs. , Under the present program tae government seeks to remove some of the surplus supplies of farm products from markets so that they will not depress producer prices.

This means that the net worth— or the excess of assets over liabilities— oif consumers at mid-year was a whopping $1,141,000,000,000. In contest, the biggest corporation in the world—American Telephone & Telegraph Co.-has tottal assets of only 17 bilion dollars. ., All of the nation's 81 billion-' dollar' firms,combined had assets totaling $241,447,251,425 at the end of 1956.

Since the' market • price would fall- to low levels under the impact of increased production, the,-expansion of both domestic consumption and exports would be large. Under a 'program of'un- limited production, the cotton payments would be close to. Another effect of. the payment plan, the department said, would xj a marked increase in the dp. mand for livesock feed, grains. At present, there is a surplus pt such grains, with prices averaging less .nan 70 per cent of parity "Under the program of unlimited payments,, the expansion, of ivestock would generate a de- demand for feed grains strong enough to lift feed grain prices close to or above the supports." ;he report said: ' .This demand, in turn, would be expected to stimulate- further 'expansion in the -acreage and production of corn. Use Up Surplus Wheat In fact the department said, the demand for feed would be, so strong that , livestock, producers would turn, to wheat to, help meet their needs. The result would be, it said, a .speedy depletion of the present wheat surplus. - " . The "department' figures that In the initial; years of the program there would be no need to make payment to farmers on wheat and feed grains because- the livestock feeding-demand would be such as to hold prices up to the 90 per cent of parity lavel. : costs of ' support- wheat and feed grains, would be. borne, .in .effect, by the payments on -livestock. -The department figures that under, a payment program costing 10 billion dollars a year, fully seven estimates. The department .says that fche output and acreage of tobacco and rice would show a similar pattern of expansion. . With, respect to farm income, cash receipts for the major commodities under a program of unlimited payments would rise,, the "department says, to about. $36800,000,000 a year or JJl billiOB dollars more than m. 1956.
