A Business Man Speaks Up

The speaker here to lend his services to Canada's War Finance Committee and to the Canadian people on behalf of our Fifth Victory Loan. The conflict between two ideas for our postwar future: the Western Hemisphere adaptation of National Socialism, and belief in Democracy. What each of those concepts mean. A detailed discussion follows, with the speaker presenting the case for free enterprise from the standpoint of businessmen. First, an examination of the history of American and Canadian industry: a constantly improved product and service, at a constantly reduced price. Also, a close look at those who govern. Defending big business. Witnessing with grave apprehension the tremendously increased organization of Labor on one hand, and on the other, the increased organization of Government. The folly of social security. The security of opportunity. Problems of deficit budgets, and of creating debt. Protecting future generations from debt.
