NotesImage 1: See LSE4801 for published cartoon. The British received a severe set-back to
hopes for revival when the Office of Price Administration in the US closed down and
virtually all Smerican price controls were removed. To the British the sharp rise in prices
in the US meant a rapid shrinkage in the real value of their loan from America; greater
difficulty in meeting their obligations to release current sterling from control; a
reversal of progress towards balancing their international accounts; and a heavy jolt to
their plans for full employment, basic to British policy. [Caption from Low's Cartoon
