That s Bill Norris View Trade winds and when he expresses a View it sounds just like that a statement standing cer Tain alone and without qualification or attribution. After a pause he might add some punctuation Damn Norris is William g. Norris the who built control data corp. Into a giant computer and finance company of which he is chairman. He feels strongly about Many things particularly about the benefits of soviet Trade. His concept of beneficial Trade is to Exchange technology rather than simply to peddle products alone. We must address the priorities of he says listing among them food Supply water Conser possibility to speculate on Gold prices present by Lou Schneider North american newspaper Alliance new York Money Metal Trade intelligence has it that the speculative ele ment saw the possibility of a Gold Price play when it slipped to an ounce from its lofty figure and used All Means of publicity to win a Public following. Their biggest Bull Price talk was that the inter National monetary fund would suspend or stretch out its auction sales. Moreover it was said West Germany s Central Bank will accede to the italian government re quest for the if to suspend its Gold Metal sales. Italy holds a larger proportion or its reserves in Gold than any other european nation. Every time the yellow Metal Price Falls Italy writes off another billion from its Central Reserve. France too owns a election won t Hurt recovery new York Nana president Ford s chief economic adviser Alan Greenspan and Jimmy Carter s chief economic adviser Lawrence Klein agree the election will not Hurt the recovery which they expect to continue through 1977. Bank economists agree capital spending is Likely to climb but no surge is in the making for at least the next 6 to 12 months. Wall Streeter report wagering Money favors Gerald Ford to win the elec Tion and that s what is said to be behind the recent Dow Industrial breakthrough of the heretofore Index ceiling. They say it s a Ford Victory Market. Huge Block of Gold. And the Gold speculators ballyhooed that Secretary of state Henry Kissinger s african diplomatic shuttle trip worked which meant Africa s balance of payments position might not be Hurt. That problem become severe once Gold drops below an ounce. Moreover the Swiss Felt that for the Good of foreign deposits in european Banks the if should seriously try to stabilize the Gold Metal Price by skipping an auction or two. The Gold speculators got the Price of the Metal up to ?122 an ounce from the Low. But it was just a speculative said an if source. The if was t impressed. Factually it announced another ounce auction to be held october 27 fourth regular auction same volume As previous three. Add note the United spending plans can be read in two ways new York Nana capital spending plans for a 7.4 per cent increase this year can be read in two ways optimism in that it will Benefit the machinery and tool industries and Cau Tion in that because of the 5.5 per cent inflation rate it is Only a sluggish two per cent increase Over last year. The some billion planned Iran and saudi Arabia buying of .-made military Hardward in t new Money spending in the United states. It comes from americans paying High fixed monopoly prices for open Petroleum. Thus the arms Are an expensive . Gift to those countries. States which by itself has been encouraging the if auctions has turned a deaf ear that the sales volume and Pace be delayed or scaled Down. A . Treasury spokesman said there has been no change in our inter National monetary policy of eliminating Gold from the International monetary the if will continue offering up to million ounces Over the next two years about one sixth of its holdings every six weeks to finance Low interest Loans to underdeveloped countries. But each Price drop reduces the fund s loan potential. And at the same time the soviet Union is a seller of its newly mined Gold to pay Cash on the barrel head from such imports As foodstuffs and electronic equipment. The volume of russian sell ing is in vation Energy development and a broader distribution of health care benefits. This is the Norris thesis technological innovation is the underpinning of modern economic society the process that brings us new products and More efficient anti inflationary methods. In the United states it is slow ing Down. We no longer Lead. We must bring about a the soviet Union has More scientists and engineers creating new knowledge than any country in the world. It budgets billion a year for developing technology. It operates technological institutes. Americans sometimes fail to give the soviets proper credit. Americans Are con Vinced Thev Are the Best.
