U. S. Power Production Is
Three Times Greater Than
Britain, Russia Combined
“British Socialist and Russian Communist enemies of U.
S. Capitalism are fond of harping on electric power, and how
it has a better chance to develop and expand under govern
ment direction than when private citizens are permitted to j
mess with it”, the New York Daily News recently declared
editorially. •
“In Russia, the Government has run the power show
for more than 30 years. On paper, it looks like a good idea, i
With a Great Brain planning everything, unhampered by
private monopolists ana reg- •
ional rivalries, shouldn’t coal
and water power be generated
at top effitienay and in as
great quantity as the whole
nation could possibly need?
•‘Britirn's Stciilist rulers na
tionalised th? electric power indus
try a little more than a year ago.
If the Marxist arguments are cor
rect. Britain should now, or short
ly. be producing tremendous
amounts of power to run its rail
I roads and factories and drive its
machines.
PINKS AND REDS WRONG
“In the United States, by far the
greatest p ventage of the power
production apparatus is in private
hands. S**, if the T»c:l and Pinh
thinkers have the right dope, we're
still pretty much in the Dark Ages
as regards i lee trie power, and are
still depending mainly on horses,
mules or our own backs to get out
work done.
"There is something wrong with
that picture. A few statistics, to
show just how wrong it is:
"In the United States in 1947,
an estimated total of almost 307
billion kilowr.tt hours of power
was produced. That contrasted
with only 114 billion kwh In 1938.
“In Socialist Britain in 1947,
electric power production totaled
42 V4 billion kwh. and stepped up
to only about 45 billion in 1948,
first year of nationalization.
‘‘And in the dear old Soviet
Union in 194 8, power production
totaled an estimated 60 billion
kwh. as against a little under 40
in 1938.
2,117 KWH PER AMERICAN
“When you divide these kwh
totals by the number of people in
each of the three countries, you
get some even more interesting
•' — .—
facts. Our ’47 output of about 307 '•
billion kwh meant that each one
of the 145,000,000 of us had 2.117
kwh worth of energy—2,117 elec
tric slaves, you n- ‘-lit s-av — to
drive machines, light and heat
homes, and so on.
“In Great Britain the approxi
mately 49,000,000 people didn't
do nearly so well in 1948. They
had only 918 kwh apiece to work
for them. •
“In up-and-coming Communist
Russia in 194f?, with its output of
60 billion kwh, the estimated 190,
000,000 people had only 315 kwh
each.
“The facts, however, are as
stated herein. And our electric
power superiority pays off in ways
which anybody can understand and
appreciate.
HIGHKST LIVING STANDARD
“For example, the V. S. A. has
one automobile for every four of
Its people; Britain one for every
22; Russia one for every 252. In
this country, there is one radio to
every three people; in Britain one
to five; in Russia, one to 45. /One
of every five persons in the Fnited
States has a telephone. The British
ratio is one phone to 155 persons;
the Russian, one to 18H.
“We got this way under the
Capitalist, free enterprise system. I
We didn't do it with the help of
Karl Marx or any of his followers.
And if we should ever let Socialists
or Communists talk us into adopt
ing either of their systems, we'd
merely b«. giving up a system
which has succeeded magnificent
ly and taking on one which has
failed.
“That would be about as smart
as giving a brand-new car in ex
change for a beat-up jalopy, and
paying a premium for the privi
lege.”
