Description : Excerpt from Journal of the American Asiatic Association, Vol. 14: February, 1914 Another thought: The chief part Of our exports, in my mind, has been made up of meat products, grain and cotton. It is safe to say they are the basic ele ments Of our exports. We are told that the meat sup ply of this country is not sufficient to meet the present demand; already they are beginning to import meat from South America. James J. Hill said not long ago that the time was not far distant when we would have to import grain wherewith to feed our people. I know that other nations are busy trying to find cotton fields in other parts of the world. And so we are confronted with a condition wherein our main supports may fall Off and materially affect the balance Of trade against us. Another element is introduced into the situation. All this great development to which I have referred has gone on for the most part behind a wall Of tarifi which protected our industries from foreign competi tion. The great economic Change that has recently taken place has removed that protection. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
