There is no problem before the world today, more important
than the elimination of forced unemployment. From the myriad
cures proposed, one plan will eventually emerge to prove itself
fundamentally sound and fitted to endure through the ages.
The writer subscribes to a plan and has sincere faith that it is
the plan.oThis plan is not Socialism, but it paves the way to a
perfect Socialism - requires neither more nor less money - upsets
none of our financial systems or institutions - decreases govern-
ment and taxes - releases rugged individualism allowing the fullest
self expression - prevents the exploitation of labor - and the plan
suggested operates through Capitalism.
It creates a condition where any normal average person, Man
or woman, willing to work, will be. able to earn from $50.00 to $100.00
per week, at present prices, the more capable in proportion, with
the weekly wage depending on the efficiency of the country's total
production. But absentee ownership will pay no return, for invest-
ments will be unprofitable, though they will always find a ready
market proportionate to their capital value. But personal effort
will be enriched at the expense of capital.
$100.00 in cash prices is to be offered for the most intelligent
comments on this plan, divided - $50.00 first prize - $20.00 second
prize, and six prizes of $5.00 each. The papers of 500 words each
must be mailed before April 15th and prizes will be distributed
before May 15th.
The contest is to be confined to 200 selected students. To enter,
simply mail a post card to the address given below, with your name
,and address, together with 'the signature of your professor in
economics,' indicating ,that you are reasonably able to understand
this problem. A booklet describing this system will then be mailed
to those selected together with notification that their name has been
entered as a contestant.
Arrangements will be made to give lectures at Ann Arbor con-
cerning this plan and bulletins will be mailed to contestants at
various intervals. Right is reserved to void this contest if less than
200 students reply.
