Neymarck's Report) At present Great Britain, Germany, and France hold more than 330 milliard francs (franc - 19.3 cents: hence this sum = $63,600,000,000) of paper securities out of the 570 10 600 milliards ($110,010,000,000 to $115,800,00 1.000) which belong to the various nations inhabiting the various countries of the globe. These 330 milliards taken at 4 per cent. bring them in a minimum interest of 13,200,000,000 francs ($2,509,000,000). On their markets more than 600 milliards are negotiable of the 815 milliards of the negotiable securities quoted in the different markets of the world,
