Transcript CHAPTER II. WHAT WILL HAPPEN TO TRADE? I . A.—How the Prophets Differ* "Probably we shall have a period of great industrial activity when peace is proclaimed, but I cannot prophesy how long it will last. I have consulted people who claim to be authorities, and they place the period of intense prosperity and activity as being much longer than I should have placed it. They say it may be three, four, or five years, followed by a period of dreadful depression." (Emil Davies, President of the Railway Nationalisation Society.) 1 For unless all experience is misleading, the first years of peace will be a time of grave depression, affecting not one or two trades, but the whole of our industrial system." (Rt. Hon. Arthur Henderson.) " We venture on no prediction as to the state of trade, in this <x>untry, in Europe generally, or throughout the civilised world, either within the first twelve months of peace or in subsequent years. On this subject economists differ apparently as widely as business men. Sir George Paish has just been telling the London School of Economics that Great* Britain will, in his opinion, come through the war with its productive capacity unimpaired, and with a dominating position in the world markets. Other prophets take a rooro gloomy view, and look, after spasmodic spurts of activity in particular trades, to a prolonged and almost universal depression, affecting alike production, distribution, and consumption ; and marked by widespread unemployment and suffering "' ("New Statesman," February 12, 1916.) Probably the explanation of this divergence of view is that different aspects of trade, and different stages in its revival, are chiefly thought of. We must distinguish between (a) local briskness, or (b) transient spurts, both of them compatible with (c) local slumps and (d) temporary depressions, and (e) a general revival of trade in the aggregate, or (f) prolonged general depression.
