Austria has art treasures that would easily sell for $2,000,000,000, and Italy has a collection that would run as high as $20,000,000,000. There are enough wealthy Americans who would buy these treasures. There is no serious intention, how ever, of permanently depriving Eu rope of its great works of art. Those treasures would serve as good col lateral for bank loans, financial writers say, and as "such could be left in the galleries where they are now being cherished.
