and no one would quarrel with such an obiective he said However the wisdom of trying to reach this desirable goal by fastening restrictive Jim its on business investments out side our country is dubious par ticularly if they are allowed to continue for any length of time Sweanngea said the petroleum industry is an excellent example of how business investment abroad has assisted in building a favorable payments balance In 1965 and 1966 the US oil industry made an average net contribution of million to our countrys balanceof pay ments while all other US in dustries combinedfatcounted for an
