Economist for railroads
Sees Solution in Ex
cess Profits
Public Told to Beware of nil
Who Would Pyramid Prices
and Blnme Rate Iliko
tlo may tio spnrml lilKhor cuts of
living by reason of llic Increased
frelffht rated, through tho nbsorp
tlon of tho Increaaes from tuecfis
profit, vr. Jett Iatirk, consulting
ecyinomli for Urn railroad labor
orcunlzallons stated today.
"Whlls tho Incroasocl frrlRht rates
will placn an added burden upon
tho consumer, this burden will not
bo very heavy, provided prlceK of
commodities nro ralsod no mora
than necessary to compensato for
tho Incronsn," Iwiuck said today.
"This conclusion Is fortified by tbn
fact that In 1010, tho total valuo
of oil commodities transported by
freight was $119 por ton, whorraa
tho nvcrnKo freight cbartfo per ton
was only 12.80, or lets than 2 12
por cent of tho value. An Increnso
of nvon 40 por cent In frclnht rates,
would therefore ndd less than ono
por cent to the avcraco valuo of the
total frrlith nirrled.
Thro Is a solution of tho problem
that would Involve no additional
burden to tho Rcncral publln. Tho
ineroasn In freight rates, tl has been
estimated, will amount to 11,200,
000,000 n year. Kvon this larKo
amount Is Insignificant, as oompared
with tho excess profits now belnff
exacted by tho basic Industries and
could easily bo absorbed by thorn
out of theso profits without any
Increnso In prlco nt nil.
"In tho dan on profiteering pre
sented by tho railroad brothorhoods
to tho railroad labor board, tt was
shown that tho corporations of tho
' country wore making excess profits
to he extent of at least 14,800,000,
000 annually. Tho great Industries
of tho country could amply afford to
deduct tho Increased freight charito
from tho prlco of their product, tliua
allowing tho commodity to reach tho
retailor at tho tamo prlco nn for
marly. By no doing, tnoy would bn
reducing their excess profits less
than one-fourth.
"Any child can understand ha an
Increased transportation charga of
1 1.200,000,000 can bo deducted from
an excess profit of $4,800,000,000
without any necenslty for fi.n advanco
In prlco and with no Injury to industry.
"The publla should not tolerate
any action which would pyramid
freight Incroaaes and make, thorn a
pretext for further advances In
prlceo," lauck continued.
"Uecatiso of tho presont abnormal
prices' and profiteering; tho publla
should rcfusa to accept any further
. Julian II. ramaleo, chlof statisti
cian of tho bureau of railway eco
nomics, also warnud tho public
against profiteers who will roako thn
tncrcaso In freight rates n pretoxt
for pyramiding tho cost of living.
"Tho public alono can tako tho
situation In hand," ha said. "Thoy
ahould tell manufacturers, Jobbers
J and retal dealers that prices aro high
enough and hey will toloialo no
further advances. In most coses,
tho dealers show a largo enough
margin of profit to absorb tho In
crease without any Impairment of
tcgltlmalo prpfltfl."
