Frederic Clemson Howe: War Costs

Posted by admin on Wednesday, April 28, 2021

Frederic Clemson Howe Money Quote saying that if the wealthy classes had to pay for wars they start, the war would never begin – it is paid by the working class and poor. Frederic Clemson Howe said:
 
War and preparations for war are possible only because the ruling classes are able to shift a great part of the cost onto the poor by indirect taxation and loans Quote
 

“There would be an end of war and preparations for war if the cost were borne by those responsible for war. There would be an end of armaments and preparedness if incomes and inheritances and the landed estates of the feudal classes paid for the protection which their privileges enjoy. War and preparations for war are possible only because the ruling classes are able to shift a great part of the cost onto the poor by indirect taxation and loans. War expenditures are tolerated only because the burdens are concealed in the increased cost of the things people consume” — Frederic Clemson Howe
