Transcript GREAT BRITAIN AFTER THE WAR. 25 that of many traders and dealers the Government and Opposition would at once cry out against them as having no patriotism." (Mr. J. R. Clynes, M.P., House of Commons, Feb. 11, 1915.) The Statesman's Comment.—"I have not the smallest doubt that well-managed ships to-day are making simply enormous profits, and that those profits come from the very cause for which the people of this country are making sacrifices in every direction, and even giving their lives." (Mr. Bonar Law, House of Commons, Feb. 11, 1915.) B.—What will be the Price Level after the War ? I 1. Demand.—From the demand side, it is the ' final utility " of an article which governs its price. In order to satisfy their need for the means of life, the mass of the people will be willing—they must be willing—to pay all that they have. Whatever the price of bread, the bakers sell approximately the same number of loaves to a given population. 2. Supply.—From the supply side, it is the cost of production of an article that governs its price. The poor who demand necessaries must be willing to pay sufficient to cover (to say the least) the cost of production of all portions of the 'supply that bas to be brought to market to satisfy the demand. Generally speaking, the cost of production promises to be greater after the war than it was in 1914. Capital will be dear (i.e., the rate of interest will remain high); the appropriate labour will, in the skilled trades, be less than it was, and, perhaps, less efficient; there may be " labour troubles " ; shortage of shipping, and continued high freights will tend to maintain the price of imports; the redistribution of commerce effected by the war, and possiblv by the international fiscal or economic arrangements that Peace will bring, may well leave us producing different things at a higher average cost than under the former distribution of the world's trade. 3. Monopoly Prices.—Economists tell us that in the case of a monopoly it is not cost of production, but what the ^ublic can be made to pay, which determines price. "The rise in prices has, in fact, been due even more to internal conditions than to the effect of the war in importation and exportation." (Cole: " Lnbour in War Time.") The extemr ana power of monopoly after the war will be greatly increased (e.g., by combinations of manufacturers, if not by trusts and cartels, etc.)
