Excerpt from The Shorthorn, 1930 The fundamental cause for the present agitation for economic equality for agriculture is that deflation after the War hit agriculture harder than it did other industries and vocations. This is not mere Opinion or resentment as some city-dwellers seem to_ think. The actual fact is that the purchasing power of the farmer's dollar, which represents the results of his year's efforts in contrast with that of other workers whose products he has to buy, fell as low as 68 cents at one time. It is now gradually coming back, but is still too low to give agriculture its fair share of the national prosperity. Many of the present efforts to improve the situation are misguided. The solutions offered would fail to relieve the situation if put into Operation. This is because they are directed toward a purely local situation rather than a national policy. But others have a very definite purpose back of them to decrease the Spread between the rising costs of production and lowering selling prices of farm products. From any of these which may be put into successful Operation, New England agriculture is bound to receive very considerable benefit. The present status is that we are competing with products of other states for a market which is overstocked. It is the intent of all sound legislation to relieve exces'sive marketing costs. Promote more rational production programs, and adapt agricultural procedures to modern industrial needs and conditions.
