ECONOMY OF SCARCITY
SCORED BY GEN. WOOD
By the Associated Press.
CHICAGO, February 27.—Holding
an “economy of scarcity” should have
no permanent place In the American
scheme, Gen. Robert E. Wood Tues
day advocated a large volume-low
price production policy for agriculture
In an address before the Economic
Club, the president of Sears, Roebuck
k Co. maintained:
“It Is the main function of capital
Ism to produce and distribute goods
at the lowest possible price consistent
with fair profits and fair wages, It is
better for the farmer, as well as the
manufacturer and merchant, to get
larger volume with moderate prices,
rather than low volume with high
prices. Agriculture as well as industry
cannot permanently aim for any econ
omy or scarcity."
He said steps should be taken to
guard against "ruinously low prices
caused by an overwhelming surplus,"
“But the ideal for the farmer, man
ufacturer and merchant is to run his
plant to full capacity at moderate
prices, provided he can earn a living
by so doing."
