They can be employed only to the extent that they are employed In other countries. ' A sharp rise in interest rates her while American rates main stable would attract Amer ican dollars to a. dgeree that would be Just as embarrassing. to payments and. reserves eon- ((derations, as unchecked Infla-, Uon would .be 'in other aspect of the' economy.

Demand hat already begun to weigh lo heavily upon supply to think otherwise. Shortages of skilled manpower are apparent in some areas. The Idle plant capacity still In being last Summer has since been taken up by the accelerated Increase in production through the Fall and Spring. The rate ot expansion is slower now than it was but another fourth quarter pick-up appears to be m the making and will almost certainly be reflected in higher wages and prices. .' , The conventional approach to - these, development! has. been lo apply the braking action of . higher interest rates and limited credit Indeed, there Is tome suggestion that the brakes are already being applied m the . recent rise in short term rate This may be reading too much into what appeared, at first, to be no more than a correction development within the market What is wanted is an empha' tic reminder of. the continuing need for wage and price stability: it would be best provided through the enunciation of a national wages and prices po licy similar to that enunciated in the United Stales. We might even go a step further with the establishment of an Incomes commission similar to that in England. There is no suggestion here ot a reversion to controls; lario town.
