It is true. So when your committee sits and takes evidence, where will be the line of demarcation? How will you determine what profiteering is? When is a man a profiteer? Under the present scheme he is allowed to charge as much as he can get. There is no law in this country that will enable the courts to determine when a man is profiteering. There may be exorbitant prices, but there is no law that says a man cannot charge and get for what he is selling, for any commodity he is handling, whatever he can get under the present scheme of things.
