Telephone 328-9231 The political downfall of Pierre Elliott Trudeu in following by only four days the fall of Willy Brandt in West is a chilling reminder of the havoc which unmanaged inflation is working in the leadership of the industrial democracies other factors helped to bring down Mr Brandt There are other prominent factors in President Nixon's difficulties in Washington The Trudeau case is the clearest example of inflation becoming decisive But inflation was the greatest weakness in Mr Brandt's position It is a major reason for the erosion of popular support for Mr Nixon It was prominent in the downfall of the old regime in Portugal It gnaws away at the position of the Tanaka government in Japan It was the main cause of the fall of the Heath government in and may deprive the successor Wilson government of its hope for an early next election victory Everywhere in the industrial democracies there is inflation even in conservative Switzerland Everywhere there is a growing public restlessness about inflation and a growing dissatisfaction with the governments which have failed to check inflation and restore economic stability Everywhere governments which have often done well m other departments e the Nixon administration s popular record in foreign are being weakened or overthrown by their failure in the inflation department Specialized Messrs Brandt and Heath are all leaders who have specialized in fonegn policy and have been undermined by inflation In the German case the rate of inflation is relatively low well below that in the United States or Britain But Germany also is more sensitive about inflation which brought down the Weimar Republic and opened the way for Adolph Hitler and is still a vivid trauma in German folk memory In the German people are insisting on getting a government which will give its priority attention to inflation The Wall Street Journal quotes a Paris concierge lamenting that is leaderless He did not go far enough We are at a moment in history when there literally is no firmly massively popular leader in any one of the important industrial democracies By JOSEPH HARSCH Christian Science Monitor The European Common Market in itself is in trouble largely because it has not prevented inflation Its Italy being the first important case in are beginning to take individual defensive economic measures The survival of the Community is in question The reasons are different Portugal s inflation was due to excessive military over commitment in the African colonies The economic base was not broad enough to support the cost of endless military lepression of dissident blacks When the oil embargo was loaded on the regime collapsed Mr Nixon s troubles are mostly presented in terms Watergate would a majority of American public opinion the polls are be in favor of his impeachment if the American economy were stable and strong'' The weakness of the stock market testifies to the loss of confidence of the business community in the Nixon administration The rise in consumer prices has alienated much of the trade union community If prices were steady employment and the stock market buoyant Mr Nixon would almost certainly be able to weather Watergate As it even his supportive basic middle class cum business community is being eroded When the Chicago Tribune abandons a Republican he is in deepest trouble Over recent weeks Mr Nixon has lost both the Chicago Tribune and the Hearst newspapers This pervasive weakening of government support throughout the industrial democracies testifies to the fact that most of the governments which have now fallen or are in danger of being toppled took office when other matters were uppermost in public consciousness The United States was still enmeshed in overseas wars and great power confrontations when Mr Nixon took office The country yearned above all for respite from war and danger of war Mr Nixon gave them that And the German people vearned above all for a surcease from the atmosphere of cold war between themselves and their neighbors to the East when Willy Brandt became chancellor He gave them that Crept up But while both Mr Nixon and Mr Brandt were doing what in substance they were elected to inflation crept up behind them And neither was equipped by experience or ideology to turn their attention lo the new priority subject The significance of all this can be exaggerated Most of the Western democracies are experienced in handling the problems of orderly succession Portugal got its change by military coup and yet reflected a return toward less arbitrary and dictatorial government In all the important democracies government continues and the routine business of government is being done But these are times when Western governments have been taken by surprise by the shift in problems They will have to adjust to the new priority problem Silence hovers in troubled Europe France Edward Heath Georges and now Willy Brandt three familiar faces have departed from the chancelleries of Europe in little more than two months in his own sought to provide a new elan to an old continent urgently in search of fresh a new role They worked for and brought what has been called the second coming together of Europe the nine nation enlarged European Economic Community They followed in the footsteps of the giants men like Winston Churchill and Charles de Gaulle and Konrad Adenauer Personal and close to each other in they eschewed the grand the heroic postunngs of the gamts they succeeded They tried to bind their countries together in workmanlike although their goal remained a political to be achieved in a decade's time For different their tenure of power in their respective countries has been relatively short Prime Minister Heath lost an election he need not have fought President Pompidou of France succumbed to physical courageously resisted over a period of many months West German Chancellor Brandt is the victim of a spy scandal high level espionage perpetrated on him by an East German government he had done more than any previous West German to reconcile Pessimism 'Poor the newspaper Le Monde exclaimed in its front page commentary on Mr Brandt's resignation There is a pessimistic feeling difficult to pin but ncpuaciuo airnec national that things may get worse now before they can become better Helmut Schmidt is regarded as a more forceful man than Mr enjoying good relations with his French colleague Valeiy Giscard and convinced that a strong Europe needs to maintain the closest relationships with the United States Mr Giscard d'Estaing will perhaps be freer than his predecessor to pursue a Europe building policy without having to account for his every action to Gaulhsts By TAKASHI OKA Christian Science Monitor jealously insisting on French sovereignty British Prime Minister Harold Wilson is reported to have made some very imaginative proposals conceimng the oil crisis a program to buy oil from Middle Eastern producers through a joint agency which in turn would sell oil to consumer nations with a slight surcharge profits from the surcharge to be applied to helping the poorer developing nations Preoccupied But the people of each individual European at this seem to be inward preoccupied with their own affairs A poll taken during France's election campaign showed only 3 per cent of the
