Economic depression in Japan has
spurred up plans for commercial su
premacy In certain directions which
Japan seeks to dominate. Her food
policy Is aimed at monopoly in the
world markets If possible. A new
kink in this plan for world dominance
is things commercial is Japan's
move to buy up and store enormous
quantities of foreign rice to give
Japan the power to regulate the
prices of rice.
Officials hers were amazed to find
Japan's scheme to "corner the
world's stocks of rice would involve
actual financial loss to Japan. It is
defended on the ground that rice hi
the chief need of the people.
Although in Japan there is oppo
sition to the plan, as it would mean
a loss to the people of 2.900.00 yen.
or about $1,509,060, the government
supports it strongly and probably
will make it effective. Without suf
ficient rice for the people and at
prices which are low, Japanese offi
cials realise that the stability of tha
nation would be endangered and pos
sibly lead to a social upheaval
Officials here declare there is the
possibility of a political storm In the
proposal to buy up and store avail
able stocks of rice. There is a sharp
connict of interests between the pro- 1
ducer and the consumer, which may i
develoo difficulties of menacing pro- 1
portions for beads of the government.
