Kedlands Doi/y Facts 8 - Wed., Jan. 29,1964 Red China's steel industry a major flop STANFORD—Ra rely, if ever, have production workers been exploited more than they are today in Communist China's steel industry, a new study made at the Hoover Institution of Stan ford University suggests. Less than 10 per cent of the pross value added annually by this industry is paid to the workers in wages. The rest of the ••profits" arc retained by the state, mainly for reinvestment in new plant and equipment. As modernization has continued, the workers' share in the fruits of their labor has diminished, even from this incredibly low level. These findings are reported by Yuan-li Wu. professor of international business at the University of San Francisco and research associate at the Hoover Institution. They are based on a detailed analysis of the Chinese steel industry scheduled for publication this spring by Praegcr. In contrast to the Chinese. Prof. Wu notes, workers in the American steel industry receive about two-thirds of the gross value added to its product as wages. Even in Russia, labor's share exceeds 50 per cent. The growing gap between wage rates and productivity gains in the Chinese Communist steel industry results from a deliberate effort by the government to curb consumption (and inflation) by repressing the workers' income, he explains. Even with this massive exploitation of human labor, however, China's tremendous effort to overtake Great Britain in steel production has proven a first class fiasco. The highly publicized "backyard" steel furnaces of the "Great Leap Forward" were "one of the most notorious cases of faulty cost-accounting and mismanagement of labor" in modern times. Prof. Wu reports. The cost of raw materials consumed by these furnaces and other production expenses exceeded the value of the finished steel. By absorbing manpower badly needed in farming, both the •'back yard" furnaces and the modern sector of China's steel industry contributed to the disastrous crop failures and major economic reversals of the Communists during I960 G2, Prof. Wu adds. These Chinese Communists made steel the symbolic rallying point of their drive to become a major modern industrial power. Yet by 1957 their productive capacity probably was no greater than 1946—before the Soviets stripped the Manchurian steel centers of their equipment, Prof. Wu estimates. Steel growth claimed by the Communists since 1958 must be heavily discounted because of the serious reversals suffered by the whole Chinese economy after the "Great Leap Forward" and because of changes in steel inventories. Between 1952 and 1960, the Chinese claim annual increases of more than 25 per cent in production of iron, ingot steel, and finished steel prod nets. But the statistics are "in accurate and unreliable," Prof. Wu contends. With steel as with their energy resources, the Chinese became so absorbed with gains in sheer size that they ignored quality and efficiency he maintains. As a result, large inventories of steel are practically useless because of their low quality. Industrial growth in other sectors has been sacrificed to steel, retarding China's general eco nomic development. Prof. Wu's study is the second in a series on the Chinese Communist economy planned by the Hoover Institution in cooperation with the Stanford Research Institute and the Social Science Research Council. BABY LACK NEW YORK (UPI) — A majority of babies at si:: months of age may be facing the most common nutritional problem of infants today — iron depletion, according to recent study by Dr. L. J. Filer and G. A. Martinez. At this age, 67 per cent of infants, it was found, arc receiving less iron in their diet than the intake recommended by the American Academy of Pediatrics' committee on nutrition.
