"ln practice the system will gradually show its weak points. In any case it could not, of itself, abolish unemployment and restore economic activity. Since it is decided to introduce it, at all costs, into international economics, it is to be hoped that other means may be found, at the same time, to stern the increase in unemployment and prove effective in other directions. Among others the undertaking of public works on a large scale would create in the economy of every country a starting point for sleeping industries."
