The immediate danger of inflation,
because of the excess bank reserves,
Professor Watkins believes serious,
and concurs with the proposals of
chairman Eccles of the Board of
Governors of the Federal Reserve
System to sterilize new imports of
gold and to substantially raise present
bank reserve requirements.
Though he did not give a final an-
swer to the question of this country
continuing its gold imports, Professor
Watkins pointed out the argument
that a discontinuance of the coun-
try's gold purchases would hamper
the efforts of returning to an inter-
national gold standard after the war.
