ABSTRACT
This article focuses on the price control measures taken in the United States. With the inflationary armaments drain on the economy approaching its peak, a cluster of quiet and determined drives go on to strip away what price-control protection now remains in effect. These drives have been moving ahead under cover of the attention-distracting steel wage-and-price dispute. All this year the foes of the OPS have been feeding out "horror" stories on the problems and expenses facing businessmen who try to comply with OPS regulations. Senate and House action on price controls is coming to a head unless business-minded Congressmen can stall action long enough to create a parliamentary emergency for controls during which the bill can be completely emasculated.
