The New Alchemists
WASHINGTON—Over the vears. people have believed
some frightfully silly things about economics.
In the Middle Ages, people called alchemists thought
thev could change base metals into gold.
They were wrong.
In more recent times, people called “Keynesians” thought
governments could spend more money than they take
in in taxes without doing anyone any harm.
They were wrong, too.
Keynesians are the disciples of the famous British econ-
omist. John Maynard Keynes (1883-1946). He was the
high priest of deficit spending.
In his General Theory of Employment, Interest and
"Money. published in 1936, Keynes said there was no harm
in deficit spending because people “owed the money to
themselves.” Not only was deficit spending harmless, he
said, but it was a positive boon to mankind. Deficit
spending could serve as “pump-nriming" to get a sluggish
economy moving again during times of recession. It would
even out the peaks and valleys of the business cycle, and
provide for the steady growth of the economy.
Keynes’ theory exploded like a bombshell in the eco-
nomic and political world of bis day. At that time, for
an economist to sav what he’d said was like a preacher
telling his congregation it was all right to sin.
Politicians were especiallv delighted with Keynes’ theory.
He’d told them they could have their cake and eat it, too.
They could vote for the spending programs their constitu-
ents wanted without having to vote the taxes to pay for
them. And everything would be iust fine.
Well, not quite everything. The politicians ignored an
important warning that Kevnes had issued. He said that
deficit spending was a good thing during times of reces-
sion, to get the economy moving again. But Keynes added
that in times of prosperity, governments should run budget
surpluses, to make up for the previous deficits.
But spending programs are popular and taxes are un-
popular in good times as well as bad. And politicians run
for re-election in good times as well as bad. So budget
deficit® have been growing ever larger, without regard to
Keynes had said it was impossible to have inflation and
recession at the same time. We all have learned to our
sorrow that he was wrong.
The truth is there are no shortcuts to national wealth.
Governments can no more spend a nation into prosperity
than base metals can be changed into gold. Governments
must live within their means. Spending must be tied to
income. It is time that Keynesian economic policies were
put on the shelf, next to the charms and potions of the
.fresh asparagus should snap when broken.

Electricity from the Sun?
The basic technology for utilizing solar energy has
existed for some time. In fact, simple systems for heating
water and even heating and cooling homes are in
operation today. However, such systems are extremely
expensive, low in efficiency and usually cannot be relied
upon without a “back-up” system.
Producing electricity by harnessing the energy of the sun,
wind, tides and other “exotic” sources is under intensive
research being conducted by the electric industry and the
Federal government’s Energy Research and Development
Administration. Millions of dollars and the efforts of many
scientists-and engineers are committed to the task, but
the crucial problem is converting energy from these
sources to electric power at a price people can afford.
Economical, efficient, large-scale production is many
Since 1971, Texas Power & Light Company has been
reducing its dependence on costly and scarce natural gas
and oil by building and operating generating plants which
use lower cost lignite coal. An abundant supply of this
coal is available for operating these plants.
TP&L and two other electric companies are also building
a nuclear power plant. The first unit of this plant is
scheduled to go into operation in 1980 and the second
We’re working to assure all TP&L customers a
dependable supply of electricity. Today, this is being done
with proven methods and reliable sources of energy, but
we’re looking to the long-range future, too.
