Holding Act Inevitable
The placing of the Holding Com-
pany Act upon the statute books was
termed "inevitable" by Professor
Dewey. "In the Federal Trade Com-
mission's long investigation of electric
and gas company activities begun in
1928, it uncovered a train of abuses
which finally made a deep impres-
sion on the country. Subsequent in-
vestigation by other federal and state
bodies confirmed the findings of the

ing companies' practices was to be.
undertaken, Professor Dewey stated,
the federal government alone was in
a position to do it. "Partly because
the holding companies were not re-
garded as public utilities and partly
because their activities were inter-
state in character, the holding com-
panies could not be reached by the
Could Have Avoided Trouble
Serving as a collecting reaction of
the administration to an unsatis-
factory situation, the government
created the Holding Company Act,
the TVA, REA, and others, Professor
Dewey asserted. "Had the utilities
been more humble or more intelli-
gent, they might have avoided some
of their later difficulties with the
federal government. They chose,
however, to fight against the rate
reductions and to regard themselves
as largely beyond the sphere of public
control. With the coming of the New
Deal, the public no longer was willing
to wait upon the companies to shift
voluntarily their long-cherished an-
tipathy to government supervision."
