A popular conception of that elusive ind much misunderstood term Is that it represents the dlffcrenco between the values of exports, and Imports of raw and manufactured products In which wo trade with foreign countries, [f that were so. wo should have long since been turned from a debtor to a creditor nation, and our vaults would have bulged with gold from overseas. Taking only the pa9t five years, .our "visible" credit trade balance was more than two and a quarter billion dollars. Had that been all there was to the equation, wo would have made great strides in paying ofT our long standing debt In Europe. But here' was where the invisible factors were working, and during this period we ac tually shipped to Europo $75,000,000 in gold over and above our gold Imports ?just to keep square. The biggest invlsiblo item Is the interest which we pay our foreign creditors on the capital which they have furnished to build our rallroado, great industrial plants anil what not. this amounting roughly to $250,000,000 per annum, according to Sir George Paish. Tho same authority cstlmatos that American tourists abroad each year spend $170,000,000 In excess of what foreigners spend here. Altogether the invlsiblo ItomB In tho balance of trado amount to $600, 000,000 per annum, distributed as fol lows: Interests on investments .. $250,000,000 Remittances to relatives .. 150,000.000 Freights?foreign carriers 25,000.000 American tourists 170,000,000 Total - $595,000,000 Thero are. of course, many other items which could be Included, such as the doblt or credit arising from pur chase and sale of securities. For reasons peculiar to themselves, the above totals will be.&ffeptcd dif ferently during the next few ..months, as now conditions grow out of tho Eu ropean. war; but tho $170,000,000 which we have customarily spent on vaca tion account seems destined to suffer a big depreciation, if nideod It Is not almost wholy wiped out And $150,000,000 or more kept on this side of the water during tho noxt twelve raonthB would pot come amiss.
