Transcript GREAT BRITAIN AFTER THE WAR. 53 more satisfactory way (even from the mere economic standpoint) of ensuring that " those nations that have fought together shall trade together? " There have been signs both before and during the war that France is moving in this direction. Suppose that a great movement were set on foot by the working classes of all the countries involved, would it be impossible, at least, to move towards international Free Trade at once or in the near future? Who would suffer by such a policy? Would it be the manual workers in any country? The Case of Germany. Will it be possible, when peace comes, to cut off trade with Germany? Great numbers of " pacifists" will endeavour, by re-opening trade, to restore friendly relations, especially if the German people establish a democratic government. Numerous traders, to whom " Business is Business," will at once begin to buy and sell with our former enemies clandestinely, if not openly. How can we prevent trade springing up again and developing year by year, as national animosities decline? Is it wise to settle the economic future of mankind on the basis of permanent hatred of the Germanic peoples? (Note.—If Germany could be included in the Free Trade circle, the Free Traders would be satisfied ; but so also should be the Protectionists, who would see Germany punished by her suffering under what they know to be an evil system !) The student might consider further the practicability of establishing a permanent international economic commission to deal with the question of general economic reconstruction and subsequently, perhaps, control international economic interests; the possibility of throwing open to traders of all nations, on equal terms, all tropical dependencies, under whatsoever flag; a common commercial code; the settling up of international postal remittance and currency systems. (See Arthur Greenwood : Chapter on International Economic Relations, in " International Relations.") Is not the future of the world with a common administration of international commerce for mutual advantage, of which we see the beginning in the Universal Postal Union, and similar International Associations; some of which already legislate for the world? (See " International Government," by L. S. Woolf.)
