New Castle News (Newspaper) - January 18, 1966, New Castle, Pennsylvania -NEW CASTLE, PA., NEWS, TUESDAY, JANUARY 18, 1966 Yugoslav toys with capitalism to compete with West liy United Press IntcrnndonnI As economic realities liavo forced the Bast European communist nations into reforms with more than a tinge ot capitalism, the most far reaching have been undertaken by Yugoslavia, traditional maverick of communism. The many-pronged objectives of the Yugoslav program are to make Yugoslav products com- petitive on a free world market, to establish the dinar on an equal fooling with western currencies, including the dollar, to reduce subsidies to state enterprises at home and to place the economy on the basis of supply and demand. In the western world, these are recognized procedures and the stops being undertaken by Yugoslavia parallel almost exactly those followed by France when President Charles de Gaulle overhauled its economy in December, 1958. But in communist lands it is rank revisionism. Devalued Franc In Franco, De Gaulle first devalued the franc, reduced subsidies to state-owned indus- tries, including the railroads, and then reduced the astronom- ic figures appearing on French paper currency by moving the decimal over, a couple of points. Thus, a note became a 10 franc note with the same value as its predecessor. The same has happened to the dinar in Yugoslavia. Giving strong support to Yugoslavia's attempt to libera- lize Us economy has been the United States. In December it was disclosed the United Slates had granted the country credits and debt postponements amounting to million. In November Ihe United Stales had granted a long-term million credit for Yugoslav wheat purchases. Results of the reforms, which began last July, already have been Impressive. Prices of many products have been allowed to find their own level on the free market. Despite early confusion, some factories are' increasing their output. The trade deficit of about million has been cut in half. Exports are showing a healthy gain and imports have been reduced. Includes Hardship But while the stale has the change has not been wilhout hardship for the Yugoslav people. In the controlled economy of orthodox communism, rents' for the worker have been nil.but free. But as rent subsidies Were reduced, the cost of housin'g more than doubled, as did the cost of electricity. Transportation costs jumped 45 per cent. As factories pulled in their belts under orders to get along wilhout government support, thousands of workers were laid off and many still are unemployed. Some have emi- grated to other lands to find work. Unskilled workers who had abandoned the counlryside to jam: the cities were being forced to return. Housewives began buying black bread instead ot white. Rising coffee and beer prices half-emptied Ihe taverns and coffee houses. But despite dislocations and some hardship, the reform has moved forward with amazing smoolhness.
