Transcript PUBLIC OWNERSHIP IN THE WORLD Compiled by CARL D. THOMPSON The facta here given are based chiefly upon the studies made by the Fabian Research Department of England, published as a special supplement of The New Statesman, of Saturday, May 8, 1916; and upon "The Collectivist State in the Making," by Emil Davies, published by G. Bell and Sons, London. A number of points are supplied from other sources. Total for Whole World The Fabian Research Department estimates that there are a total of 11,000.000 people employed in the various public enterprises of the world; that no less than $2,250,000,000 are paid annually in wages in these enterprises, and that there is a total of $50,000,000,000 of capital invested. This estimate, however, does not include the military or police force, fire protection, the courts, poor relief, regulation, inspection and audit, or the matter of taxation. If these were included, and they are certainly cases of public ownership and operation, the figures would be very much larger. Figures are not at hand for the entire police and fire departments of the world. But Including the fire departments of the ten largest cities and the police departments of fifty-one of the larger American cities, and of all of Great Britain, of Paris, Vienna and Berlin, and the entire army and navy equipment of the world on a peace basis only the figures for the whole would be not less than the following: Total number of public employee* of all kinds—18,858,600: annual wages paid—$2,265,000,000; total capital invested— $60,000,000,000. Postal Systems The postal systems of the world operate 282,782 offices; employ 1,300,000 persons and pay annually in wages $325,000,000. Highways On the building and maintenance of roads, bridges and highways there are employed no less than 1,000,000 people; and the annual expenditure is at least $1,000,000,000. Canals and Waterways Annual expenditures are not less than $1,500,000,000. Railways Considerably more than one-half of the entire railway mileage of the world is now publicly owned. These public railways employ not less than 1,000,000 persons and pay $250,000,000 in wages annually. Water Supplies Employ over 100,000 and have $5,000,000,000 capital invested. Public Health including hospitals, sanitary systems, drainage, street cleaning, sewerage and the like employ 1,500,000 people and pay $340,000,- 000 in wages annually. 59
