Britain's crisis

August 1947
America;8/16/1947, Vol. 77 Issue 20, p39
The author reflects on the economic crisis in Great Britain. He stresses that the only consolation offered to the rising economic crisis in the country is intellectual. He adds that before the war, Great Britain had to import over half of its food, however, it was not sufficient enough to manufacture goods to pay for this food. Although the British were not in a secure economic position, they did not face national bankruptcy.
