And what I libe about It is that at a tiwbefn
peat stability ha been avUvved at so cheap
In the eonsoe prios Iaiz for eighteeemn th,
a sonsLdersbl degree of mmetary stabiity In
Australla the produetion and export of seal
and of irsa and steel don here have rises
alInt fabdIOUle& a. This 4amestrates somethiag
that I as aftrquetly eig that stability is
the 6endition of v t and not the onew of
povth. In other wts a that stablity is
not eta patisa but S is the sendition an whisb
trimr pevth depadq, and bre you have i ome

the most perfect example of this that I could
