People behind the by lines by Sterling f. Green associated press writer hot Springs a. A president Johnson Stop economic adviser and an official of a Federal Reserve Bank say that even if there is a tax hike voluntary restraint on wages i and prices will be needed to combat inflation. Chairman Arthur m. Okun of the presidents Council of economic advisers and president Alfred Hayes of the Federal Reserve Bank of new York told the nations Industrial leaders Friday some action must be taken to halt spiralling wages which in turn threaten spiralling prices. Okun and Hayes addressed the business Council at its Spring meeting. Some too presidents and Board chairmen of the nations biggest firms discuss Urban problems today. Okun said the a journey Back to Price stability will be a Long and difficult one even if Congress enacts Johnson a proposed to per cent surcharge on income taxes. A the Basic problem for reconciling Prosperity and Price stability is going to be with us a Long time and the need for some kind of voluntary restraint is very great indeed a he said. Okun did not use the word guideposts to describe the voluntary wage Price restraints he advocated. But Hayes said this device needs a careful and sympathetic re examination even though it is considered out of fashion. A while direct and rigid governmental controls Over prices and wages must be rejected As counter to the very principles of free Commerce we seek to sustain we must find some Way of upholding the guidepost principle of keeping wage increases in line with average productivity gains a Hayes said. A if we Are successful in moderating excess demand with the pending tax hike Bill then at least we will have moved toward a situation where the guidepost principles can work and it will then be up to labor and management to see that they do work. A the lesson of the guideposts is now less valid than in the Days when More attention was paid to them namely that wage increases in excess of increases in real output can represent nothing More than an inflationary Mirage a Hayes told the business leaders. The governments guideposts virtually collapsed in 1966. The wage increase formula had been 3.2 per cent up to then but prices surged beyond guidepost Levels. The Al Cio announced it would not be bound by any formula that did not curb prices and profits As Well As wages. Okun said he recognizes there is no consensus on a formula for restraint. But he pointed out that the tax surcharge even if it takes some pressure off prices will leave unsolved the Long Range problem of holding the Price line in times of Strong business expansion. Okun said wage settlements so far this year Are running close to six per cent. They Are building costs into the Economy which business management so far has not fully passed on to the Public he added. But Okun said labor argues i it is merely catching up with living Cost increases. The problem is like that of people watching a Okun continued.
