Profaseor ot agricultural economics,
Although the MfijtelT Plan is de
signed to am WtMh*?- Europe, it
will in fact save American agricul
ture from a postwar collapse. Under
the Marshall Flan, American dollars
will preside the parchaainr pow
with which Europe can buy*American
iarm products. This is of special in
terest to the South where die two
ehief crops, cotton and tobacco, are
en an export basis.
There would be no need of a Mar
thai) Plan if all of our 2am and fac
tory products wen consumed or
wed in our own markets. In each a
ease we would need a plan, but it
would be called aa American Plan.
But,*ince other countries depend up
on the United States both for manu
factured goods and for some of our
agricultural products, the Marshall
Plan is necessary and would have
bees necessary even if there had
bees no war. World War II simply;
made the plea aeon urgent.
Now this kind of reasoning may be
confusing to many people. K is dif
ficult to make clear why we, as 'a
nation, should provide sqck large
sums of American doilan fer west
ern Europe ooantries. The reason
most often given is that this money
is to defeat pommunism or to pro
"tect these foreign countries from
Communism. The economic reason is
much harder'to state. - ,
Over the years die United States,
because of its, material resources,
skills and sciences, has built up a
vast (jomnstir and fpmign trade.
People, both at house and abroad,
have come to dspsad do much upon
American Iwbltolf and agriedlture
that they Ippa bean willing to fight
for a faiy abase of its enormous out
put. This is adieu referred to as the
economic basis of wsr. ?

too great For a kfog time the ad
vanced nations of the world have
carried on an active and vast inters
national trade. This trade provides
the means of using the world's
sources to the best advantage.
Many myths have sprung sg> about
hoar international trade should be
carried on. One of these myths (one
of the greatest conceived by the hu
man mind) is tariff. Tariff is a de
vice by which one nation attempts to
gat more ot the world's goods
is entitled to. The Urdted States has
of the leading exponents
of this device. The United
States has been saying to the rest of
the world these many yean: Ton
take our exports on a free basis, but
wo will take your exports w a is
strictad basis." The United States
has erected and maintained one of
the highest tariff walls in the his
tory of the .world.
Tariff has been the device by
which the United States has made
an "over-charge" en international
to buy our exports. In
of. things this "over
