ABSTRACT
The article looks at the implications of a war-profits bill enacted by the U.S. House of Representatives in 1935. The bill authorizes President Franklin D. Roosevelt to fix prices, rents and compensations in case of war. It is noted that only a general provision for the taxation of excessive war profits is stated in the bill. It suggests that the bill indicates that the temper of the Congress reflects the temper of the people against war.
