Rogers~; -oOo- "If anyone were to lie awake nights tryingto think up ways to destroy a free enterprise system, he would surely conclude that fostering and promoting inflation would be his best and most secret weapon. Free civilization tends to disintegrate as the clti- zens become bewildered, confused, frustrated, suspicious, and lose confidence in leadership. Inflation does all of those things in greater or lesser degree and makes it impossible for people to provide for their own security. Accordingly, they must look to government for even minimum malntenance."--Mr• John A• El- orriaga, president of the United States National Bank of Oregon.
