In his office in ad- joining Vanicr City, looking across the Ridcau River to Uie capital, the 43-year-old former professor of economics at Ihc University of Montreal lalked about bis plans for Die council as it nears its Kith birthday.

We will not ask its per- mission to underlakc a study, and we will be able lo say no lo it. "We will maintain the integ- rity of the council in Ihis re- spect." A widely-respccled expert on problems of 'overcoming re- gional economic disparities 'n Canada; Dr. Raynauld intends to introduce the teamwork and "think lank" approach to Ihe council's work, and to employ other new techniques in eco- nomic analysis and forecasting. The council undertakes eco- nomic research and prepares reports for 'a 25-incinher advi- sory hoard drawn from labor management, agriculture, con- sumer groups, the academic work! other segments of the population. Its major recom- I mendations bear the stamp of the council as a whole, but it also puts out individual re- search papers. WANTS IMPROVEMENT Dr. Raynauld hopes the coun- cil's future reports will be more diversified, move precise, more understandable lo lhe layman, and more provocative for pro- fessional economists in business and government. With the help of several gov- ernment departments, the coun- cil has developed a new tool for forecasting the economic out- look.. The new.computer called inter related mathematical questions. When the button is i pushed, they result in a com- plete picture of what might haji- pcn in the economy from now to the 1980s. Candide draws its name from "Canadian Disaggregated In- ter-Departmental Econometric'' i model. It is also the name of a i famous book by Voltaire in which the hero is repeatedly as- sured, in the face of recurring disasters, that things arc (jet- ting better. The council has a staff o[ 105, of which 40 are professionals, mostly economists. Dr. Ray- nauld said he hopes to have them collalwrate in groups on specific research problems. j Previously, staff members were inclined lo work as individuals. Taking office last monlh, he j has also signed three contracts' with university economists to I move to Ottawa for periods of 15 full academic year plus two vacation periods j work in the council of- i fices. With Candide, the council will j be able to project, on more up- i to-dalc data, how demand for 1 goods and services will grow. It! will survey potential markets and price trends. EXPECT TWO FOIUIS Candide will be used in the council's projection of economic needs for the decade to lhe early IBDOs, to he issued this fall. The report probably will be issued in two concise, easily-read one for the layman and a more detailed, profes- sional research papsr for trained economics in govern- i ment and business. I Dr Raynauld succeeded Ar- Ihur J. R. Smith as chairman of the council when Dr. Smith left lo become chairman of the pri- vately-financed Conference Board in Canada. The new chairman gives his predecessor full marks for stalling develop- ment of Candide about two years ago, but says he has di- rected the council ,4o double its investment in the computer medel of (he economy.
