Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - May 26, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta 22 THE IHHMIDGC HERALD Saturday, May 26, 1973 Warning issued on boom-bust NEW YORK (CCP) A growing number of economists are warning that the United States is heading towards a vio- lent boom-bust lowed by paralysing if steps are not taken to cool the country's superheated econ- omy. As evidence, they point to a fresh spurt of inflation, soaring first-quarter company profits, swiftly rising retail sales and consumer instalment debt, man- ufacturers' orders that are go- ing up twice as fast as they were a year ago and a heavy program of capital expenditure by industry. Inflation, they say, also has been a factor in the stock mar- ket's to Thurs- day's the face of so much favorable business and economic news. The Watergate affair, producing a steady ero- sion of public confidence in the Nixon administration, also has contributed to the market's er- ratic performance. Most of the country's top eco- nomicsts agree that the econ- omy cannot continue to surge Big tug boat makes first trip VICTORIA (CP) The largest and most powerful tug ever built in Canada left the dockyard at Yarrows Ltd. here Friday on her maiden voyage.

Leader smong the con- servatives is Herbert Stein, President Nixon's chief econo- mist, who told a Senate com- mittee this week that great surge of inflation" of the last three months is ending and that the rapid pace of the economy will "slow down considerably in the remainder of this year." He predicted that the con- sumer price index, which leaped ahead at an annual pace of 5.6 per cent in the first quar- ter, will show an annual gain of only four per cent by the end of ycsftr.
