A Study In Financial Statesmanship-
 Montague Norman

The history of Great Britain since the war has been characterized by an unusual absence of political leadership. None of those who have governed the destinies of the nation from Downing Street between 1918 and 1932 have been able to uphold the best traditions of British statesmanship. During a period in which Italy produced a Mussolini, France a Poincare, Russia a Lenin and a Stalin, Germany a Stresemann, the politicians of the nation which through many centuries has acquired a reputation for statesmanship, failed to live up to the high standard established by their predecessors. None of the Governments that have succeeded each other since the war have been able to give a lead to Europe, in accordance with British traditions. If, in spite of this, the British nation has maintained its prestige for its statesmanlike qualities, the credit is due to a man whose sphere of activity has been outside politics. This man is Mr. Montagu Collet Norman.

Out of the open West came a young man of less than thirty to this great city of New York. He was small of stature and slight of build. His alma mater had been, the forecastle and the printing-office. He was poor, unheralded, unknown. He came from a small city rising at the western golden portals of the country to set up here, for a struggling little newspaper there, a telegraphic news bureau, despite the opposition of the combined powerful press and telegraph monopolies. The struggle was too unequal . The young man was overborne by the monopolies and his little paper crushed. This young man was Henry George and the time was 1869. But though defeated, Henry George was not vanquished. Out of this struggle had come a thing that was to grow and grow until it should fill the minds and hearts of multitudes and be as " an army with banners." For in the intervals of rest from his newspaper strug, gle in this city the young correspondent had musingly walked the streets . As he walked he was filled with wonder at the manifestations of vast wealth. Here, as nowhere that he had dreamed of, were private fortunes that rivaled the riches of the fabled Monte Cristo. But here, also, side by side with the palaces of the princely rich, was to be seen a poverty and degradation, a want and shame, such as made the young man from the open West sick at heart.

THE biographer, one Lucas of Syria, whose amazing story of the world's most successful man of business we are about to examine, begins his work with this brief literary gem, which for true artistry certainly deserves a high place among the world's greatest prefaces . Even the various English renderings show that scarce a whit of its noble dignity is lost in translating it from its original setting in Greek.

The world debt crisis of 1983, and the steps proposed to solve it - or shift the unpleasantness to someone else - are rooted in a sequence of events dating back to 1944, and involving institutions and practices far removed from the experience of the ordinary citizen. The nature of today's problem, however, can be understood by any intelligent citizen in possession of a few fundamental facts.
