It has undermined every dollar of' saving* in the country and is re- gporMble for the, vicious contest botwesiti wages and the cost of living. An Arizona , Farm* Bureau Federation news release has somcithii<ng to say, about inflation and farmers that should be of interest to anyone, who has a dol- lar.in his Rocket: "Inflation can bs generated only by s government. Business^ firms, labor unions, or consumers with ex- cesslye market power can do many objectionable things that are contrary to the public interest. But,' they cannot cause inflation. Only government — with its ower to tax and to mint and honey, wJth its dominant position as a consumer of goods and services to both domestic and foreign markets can do that." Government attempts to con r trol inflation by setting up "guidelines", and imposing controls on the free market are a grand hoax that if attempted by private citizens would mean jail. People who fly into a rage al ways make a bad landing. ^ Success comes before work only in the dictionary. Quality 'has everything in its favor including the price.
