Annual Report of Major General Arthur MacArthur, U. S. Army, Commanding, Division of the Philippines, 1901, Vol. 2 : Military Governor in the Philippine Islands (Classic Reprint)
Excerpt from Annual Report of Major General Arthur Macarthur, U. S. Army, Commanding, Division of the Philippines, 1901, Vol. 2: Military Governor in the Philippine Islands These conclusions are in the main denied by the advocates of the second plan, who urge the view that under conditions now generally obtaining throughout the commercial world and not likely to change, a gold country is never at a disadvantage in trade with a silver country, and further, that the statistics as to exchange indicate that trade between the Philippines and silver-using countries is of much less volume than that sustained with gold countries. In refutation of the second point made above as to the conservatism of the natives in matters of finance, they point to the ready acceptance by the people of the Spanish -philippine peso, introduced in considerable quantities into the islands in 1897. The fact that the introduction of American currency would tend to increase wages and prices is admitted and defended.
