A message for the influencers:

Today, millions of people who have never had a course in econom-
ics are influencing the structure of our economic system by their
action, or inaction. Yet the well-being of each individual and family
depends on sound economics. Realizing that "the doctor" needs to

know "the patient", The Business Roundtable is sponsoring mes-
sages that discuss innerworkings of ourAmerican economic system.
They are giving this special "mini course" monthly exposure be-
fore the country's largest reading audience in Reader's Digest.

SGC Needs Students

ton, N.C., PPG Industries
N INE years ago near Lexing-
converted a 150-acre farm
into a sleek new factory.
Today that factory employs more
than oo people and produces 140
million pounds of glass fibers a year
-for everything from draperies to
lightweight automobile body parts.
" On Michigan's Escanaba River,
wood pulp is fed into one end of a
new Mead Corp. papermaking ma-
chine that almost fills a building a
quarter of a mile long. At the other
end emerges a band of paper 25 feet
wide. Up to 6oo workers harvest the
wood for this plant, while i100 make
the paper-annually enough paper
to cover a 16-lane highway around
the earth at the equator.
" At New Johnsonville, Tenn.,
DuPont built a plant to produce ti-
tanium dioxide, the safe whitener
that has replaced lead in paint and
is used in scores of other products
including paper and textiles. The
year it opened, the plant provided
jobs for more than 300 local resi-
dents. Now, nearly three times that
number are on the payrolls-which
ran about $14 million last year.
These three factories are the result
of what economists call capital in-
yestment. Their cost adds up to a
huge sum-approximately $250 mil-
lion. Each was financed with re-

or borrowed funds, or both.
Such capital investment is what
our forefathers called "thinking
ahead." When we still lived on farms
or in villages, no one but a fool
would consume all his garden, herds
and flocks. A smart man kept some-
thing for breeding stock and seed.
But for some years now our coun-
try has lived as if this commonsense
wisdom applied to everybody except
us. Between 1960 and 1973 we rein-
vested an average of 13.6 percent of
our real gross domestic product in
new plants and equipment, com-
pared with 18.2 percent in France,
20 percent in Germany and 29 per-
cent in Japan.
Some 6o to 70 percent of our exist-
ing manufacturing capacity has been
installed since 1960, versus 85 percent
of Japan's. While our government
was increasing demand by incur-
ring deficits and voting new money
payments to our people, we ran
our old, lessefficient factories above
their proper operating level. Nat-
urally, this caused costs and prices
to spiral.
If we are to pull out of this reces-
sion and avoid worse ones, we must
begin now to invest much more in
job-creating plants and equipment.
But how? Most economists believe
one solution lies in substantially in-
creasing the investment tax credit,

With today's unemployment,
and with millions of young people
getting ready to enter the job market,
we must make it possible for companies
to invest far more of what they
earn today so that they can produce
