Other People's Money

Flynn, John T.
September 1940
New Republic;9/9/40, Vol. 103 Issue 11, p352
The article focuses on the implication of the war on businessmen in the U.S. As corporation lawyers and the financial district tax experts fight to keep war from touching profits through taxes, the Senate has voted for an amendment into the draft act to enable the government to seize the producing elements of the country if the government should deem it necessary. In the direction leading to the last phase of the New Deal, elements of militant chauvinism may have been added.
