Transcript 66 GREAT BRITAIN AFTER THE WAR. water% She has great coalfields watered by the sea. Germany has neither our ports nor our coastline. We have neglected our advantages, and partly nullified them by neglecting the economic development of transport. Germany, on the other hand, has wisely and patriotically done her best, by thoughtful and coherent railway and canal development, to atone for her natural disadvantages." (Sir Leo Chiozza Money: "Fiscal Dictionary.") C.—The Re-Organisation of the Railway System. The student should consider what, in relation to railway service, are the several needs of (a) the Trader and Farmer; (b) the Passenger; (c) the Railway Employee; (d) the Taxpayer ; and (e) the Community as a whole ; and then proceed to consider by what kind of re-organisation these can most adequately be met. Should the nation "denationalise" its railways, and revert to the pre-war system of private ownership and administration, subject to the minimum of State control through the apathetic Railway Department of the Board of Trade? Should we preserve the war-system of leaving the railways in private ownership, but insisting on their being run in subordination to national needs? Or, is it the statesmanlike course to carry through complete nationalisation of Ownership and Administration, under a Government Railway Board? (Note.—1. The student should remember that the probable alternative to unification under democratic control is unification under private control; and he should ask himself whether such a centrally administered, private railway system—a capitalist monopoly—either could or would give us advantages as great as advocates of nationalisation look for in State-ownership and Government Administration. Is it wise to leave in the hands of a single private capitalist monopoly an industry employing 8 per cent, of all the men wage-earners, and necessarily controlling both our industrial and social development? Are we sure that the interests of the railway shareholders are identical with those of the nation?) 2. It is also necessary to bear in mind possible alternative transport developments in the immediate or remote future. In view of possible developments in air transit and in road motor traffic, is the purchase of railways likely to prove a bad financial speculation? (The present Stock Exchange prices embody the best expert judgment ajs to their future value.)
