Coal industry booms
devastation looms

In times of economic distress it is
tempting to rearrange priorities so
that everything but economic con-
siderations gets shunted to the
background. It appears that is what‘s
happening today in the L'.S.. par-
ticularly in regard to energy sources
and their effect on the environment.

The temptation to disregard
potential environmental problems
could be especially devastating to
Kentucky, where coal has long been
“king“. The “king“ may have
seemed lethargic in past years. but
there is no doubt that he is wide
awake now. The “energy crisis." with
its high oil prices and resultant
general inflation has made coal an
economically attractive alternative
energy source. and Kentucky has the
dubious distinction of being the
nation‘s number one coal-producing

According to a report in last Sun-
day's Courier-Journal and Times,
based on US. Bureau of Mines‘
estimates, Kentucky mined a record
130 million tons of coal in 1974. The
nearest rival. West Virginia,
produced 105 million tons.

The most significant figure is not
the total tonnage mined. but the
percentage that was surface mined—
an indication of environmnetal
disruption. In Kentucky. an
estimated 54 per cent of the coal
produced in 1974 was surface mined.
as compared to 22 per cent in West

'On the spot'

Virginia. That difference can be
largely attributed to a ban on strip
mining in 22 West Virginia counties.

The largest percentage gains in
coal production came in Wyoming
and Montana. where. according to the
Courier-Journal story. “there has
been a rush to open large new strip
mines in areas where the land is
relatively level and the coal deposits
are large."

Coal profits are undoubtedly the
main reason for the present increase
in strip mining. since strip-mined coal
can be produced more quickly than
deep-mined coal. thus taking ad-
vantage of the current high prices.
Kentucky had a considerable rise in
both the number of underground
and surface mine licenses last year—
lrom 1.498 in 1973 to 2.655 in 1974.
Most of the new mines opened in
Eastern Kentucky. underground
mines increasing 87 per cent and
surface mines increasing 75 per cent.

It is clear from these statistics that
coal mining in Kentucky is growing at
unprecedented rates. What is not
clear is whether environmental
protection in Kentucky is keeping

'With the multiplier marching on before us'

By GREGORY lll\'l‘2l.\'

(Editors note: This is the second of a
two-part series concerning Keynesian

Let us proceed now to describe the
basics of the Keynesian model. Recall that
it was assumed that ('onsumption is a
given function (‘t\') of Income. We now
make the following additional assump»
tions: 1 I) Expenditure E equals Income Y.
13> I‘lxpenditure equals (‘onsumption plus
Investment and (Iii Investment is not a
tiniction of Income Note that the account
mg ltlt‘lllll) r1) may be regarded as a form
of Say‘s Law

We now have these equations. (' equals
(WY). K equals \' and Iu‘ equals (‘ t I_
(‘ombining these ingredients and stirring
gently one finds that Y equals (‘t Yt 4 I so
that isurprise‘ 1 Income is determined by
Investment (see figurel. More precisely.
there is only one value for Y satisfying this
equation for a given value of I.

-\.\'I) NOW FOR a miracle? Recall that it
was assumed that Investment was not a
function of income 'l‘hus. reasons the
Kt'}ll('.\litll. if we can somehow cause
Investment to increase by an increment X.
why then the level of Income will
magically rise by an increment which is
approximately the increment X multiplied
by a quantity in which is the reciprocal of
one minus the slope of the consumption
tiinction i.Mathematically. m equals I/tI -
dtVdI) I This is the famous multiplier




The multiplier effect is usually proved in
one of three ways' either algebraically tin
the case of a linear consumption function i.
by calculus or by a geometric series
argument. In any case. the typical
economics student is so intimidated by
“higher" mathematics that he feels
incapable of challenging this. After all. it
was proved by calculus?

of course. the mathematics alluded to is
indeed quite unchallengeable. The point is
that tllively's Dictum) the soundness of an
economic model must be determined by
economic -not mathematical consider—
ations. If. for example. I assume that
savings S is an increasing function Strt of
the interest rate r. then it‘s clear that
that‘s merely an assumption and that I
haven't proved that it's actually so. If. on
the other hand. I want to "prove" the
opposite. all I have to do is tell you that S
equals I tan accounting identity) and that
Investment is a decreasing function Itrt of
the interest rate. Now draw a few graphs
and the poor student “understands“ how

lowering the interest rate increases

ItETl'RNINtI TO the multiplier, let's
strip it down to essentials. I ask the reader
to accept the fact that we will be doing no
violence to the multiplier argument it we
consider its meaning when (‘ is a constant
proportion of Y. Thus, suppose that
Consumption is always 90 per cent of
Income. Then it follows that Investment
must be 10 per cent of Income, So if
Investment can (somehow) be increased
by an amount X. then Income must
increase by ten times X If (somehow: we
can double Investment. then Income will
also double. Isn't that wonderful? With the
multiplier marching on before us the age
of plenty is at hand?

In fact. a more simple-minded theory
could scarcely be imagined. One is
reminded of the saying Asimov puts into
the mouth of one of his characters: “Such
folly smacks of genius. A lesser mind
would be incapable of it.“

Let‘s examine for a moment how it is
that Investment might somehow be in-
creased. The obvious answer is that we
might divert some of our income from
Consumption to Investment. But if we do
this. then obviously the consumption
function has shifted downward and we
have a alas * no multiplier effect.

HAPPILY. TIIE Keynesian has an
answer for this, What is required. we are
told. is an autonomous increase in Invest-

ment. This means that the additional
Investment expenditure must come into
the system from outside. How can this be‘.’
Easy! Just get the government to print up.
say. a billion or so crisp new Federal
Reserve Notes. Then have them spent for
something that the national income ac—
countants will classify as Investment.
There it is. folks w autonomous Invest-

This provides one explanation of the
otherwise incomprehensible fact that. in a
country which once produced such truly
great economists as John Bates Clark and
Irving Fisher. the absurd Keynesian
macroeconomics has received almost
universal acceptance. The explanation is
this: the Keynesian system provides an
excuse for a policy of inflation and serves
as a justification for government control of
the economy. The result is that political
expediency, peer pressure and the desire
to wield power combine subtly to produce
a new strain of homo oeconomicus — the
Government Economist.

In sum. we now have a generation of
economists who. indeed, know a great deal

_ when it comes to individuals and firms. but

who manage to forget everything when it
comes to aggregates. Truly they deserve
the oblivion which awaits them if ever the
Keynesian system should be recognized
for the hoax it really is.
