Pages 13,14, 15c obituaries. Page 2d maybe even Economy is As expected Washington a government economists expected the first half of the year to be bad and it was. But inflation and real production were even worse than expected. There is concern that the expected second half recovery might not be enough to balance off the losses. Here s How the Economy a performance so far stacks up with original projections a Gross National product the nations total output of goods and services was originally expected to Rise 8 per cent without allowing for inflation. So far the increase has been at a 6 per cent annual rate. A inflation As figured into the Gross National product computations was expected to be 7 per cent Over the year. However the increase for the first half when projected Over the year would be to per cent a on the brighter Side employment was expected to Peak at about 6 per cent and average about 5.5 per cent for the year. The rate so far Hasni to gone above 5 2 per cent a Mike average is just below that. After allowance for erosion of the Dollar due to inflation the real output of the Economy declined for the entire first half of the year. Six months ago the presidents Council of economic advisers forecast a the situation at the beginning of the year does not appear to presage any Long or severe the Council is still projecting a slight gain in real output but other economists Are More guarded a slow and improving growth is expected but the pattern of that growth will probably not attain the level that was expected a said Sidney l Jones top Deputy to the presidents economic coordinator. Quot this will result in Little if any growth a he said. A and we probably will not have any growth for the year As a whole Given the Sharpness of the first Quarter drop a the administration contends the first half drop was a an Energy crisis spasms a which shouldst carry Over into the final six months. However Courtenay m. Slater an economist with Congress joint economic committee argues that inflation was More broadly based than that and the increases still working their Way through the Economy. A the fact that we now have no wage policy and incomes policy to Deal with this problem is unfortunate a she said. The administration approach is to maintain tight budget and fiscal controls and Quot not lose our nerve a As Herbert Stein departing chairman of the Council of economic advisers has urged. But a major Factor of uncertainty in the second half of the year to both administration and Independent economists is the possibility of crippling strikes.
