Washington a even with help from the new tax Cut Many americans face a substantial loss of purchasing Power this year because of inflation. With the year nearly half Over government figures indicate that inflation will be significantly worse this year than in 1916 when consumer prices advanced 4.8 per cent. Inflation pushed consumer prices up 3.2 per cent in the first four months of the year and the Carter administration recently raised its inflation forecast for All of 1977 from 5.3 per cent to 6.7 per cent. 40 dead in fire at nightclub Southgate by.

Bartender Gil Broadbeck said suddenly the smoke hit and people began jumping Over the bar. It was so thick. 1 could t get a breath a foot above the but the recent Pace of inflation is causing speculation that it could be worse than that before the year is Over. Administration economists expect a slowdown in the inflation Rale after midyear especially in food prices which have risen 5 per cent in the first four months. Nonetheless there Are signs of concern. President Carter told a news conference thursday that his main concern Al this Point on the economic scene is the rate of inflation and the Pace of Ine Lalion clearly is behind moves by the Money managing Federal Reserve Board to tighten growth of the Money Supply to make Loans More expensive. On Friday several major Banks raised their prime lending rate for Loans from 61-? to per cell the second increase in a week. Since higher interest rates can discourage economic growth the Stock Market responded by pushing the Dow Jones Industrial aver age for stocks below 900, to 838. For the first time since Jan. Although Carter has previously said inflation and unemployment could be battled simultaneously his Lales state ment appeared to move him a big Slep closer to the position of former Treasury Secretary e. Simon thai inflation was Public enemy no. 1." there Are a lot of reasons Why Carter and his advisers worry about the recent High rate of inflation. For one thing rising prices mean Consumers May have to Cut Back on expenditures. There were signs that ibis May have started in april when retail sales failed to increase for the first time in months. The combination of reduced consumer buying plus higher interest rates could endanger administration goals for economic growth and employment. The real purchasing Power of workers paychecks declined in april for the fourth time in five months and was one tenth of 1 per cell below what it was a year earlier. Thai was after adding in increased pay. While the tax cuts signed into Law by Carter last week will reduce taxes by about s100 a year for the average family of four the losses to inflation should More than offset thai. Even if inflation holds to the 6.7 per cent forecast by the administration it still Means a person with income would lose in purchasing Power because of higher prices by year end. That person already had lost s320 in purchasing Power by the end of april. Until april Al least Consumers had been increasing their purchases in part by drawing on savings. Americans were saving Only 4.8 per cent of their income in the first Quarter of this year one of the lowest Rales in years. The savings Rale was 7.8 per cent in 1975 and 6.5 per cell last year. Alice Rivlin director of the congressional budget office is pessimistic about the Pace of consumer spending in months ahead partly because the savings rate is so Low and because it is Likely Consumers will want to build their savings up again. One reason Consumers reduced their savings she said May have been that they anticipated receiving the tax rebate that Carter Trad proposed but then withdrew earlier tins year. A rising inflation rate also could determine administration efforts to win restraint in wage increases this year. So a wage hikes have been averaging about 8 per cell a year a rate that May not continue to satisfy workers if it appears inflation will outpace those gains.
