Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - November 17, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta -Wednesday, Novrmhn 17, 197.1 1HI lEHTBRIDOE HERALD 11 Europe's economic progress a miracle BRUSSELS (Bailor) The six charter members of the Eu- ropean Common Market have all made strong economic prog- ress since it was founded 13 years ago. This year has seen some eco- nomic slackening, particularly in West Germany and Italy, and inflation is a problem. But the over-all performance of the six countries in the last decade re- mains impressive. In West Germany, officials Caslro: "Great similarity between Christians, Communists' IQUIQUE, Chile (AP) Fidel Castro said here he doesn't prescribe his own revo- lutionary methods for other countries and "it's up to each country to find its own solu- tions." "I'm not telling anyone to fol- low our the Cuban premier said at an after-mid- night news conference in this fishing town in northern Chile. revolution solved prob- lems that were particular to Cuba. Today we have eradi- cated gambling, prostitution, begging and illiteracy. Today in our country no child goes with- out shoes or without a chance to attend school. But we don't in- tend to prescribe solutions to any Jther country." Castro, visiting Chile on his first foreign tour in seven years, praised President Salvador A1- Icnde's left-wing government for such "highly revolutionary acls" as renemng diplomatic relations with Cuba and nation- alizing the huge U.S. investment in Chile's copper mines. Castro termed "highly posi live" the growing involvement of the Roman Catholic Church with Lalta American revolution- ary movements. "There is a great similarity between the first Christians and The Communist he said. "Today more and more priests are becoming conscious of so- cial problems." FIRST IN 50 YEARS The first major tin mine to open in Europe for 50 years has begun production in southwest England. have no doubt that the country's economic miracle is clue in large part to the European Eco- nomic Community, which gave German industry a home mar- ket more than three times the size of the country's population The gross national product has more than doubled in 10 years. But the West German cost ol living, previously one of the most stable in the world, has risen nearly six per cent in Ihe last year, and an inevitable slowing of expansion after years of boom was intensified by the government's decision last May to let the deulschmark float. Its rise in value has made German goods dearer abroad, hitting ex- port prospects. Unemployment is only about 0.7 per cent of the labor force, far below the level in most countries. In France, farmers have been the most obvious beneficiaries of Common Market membership because of the community's ag- ricultural policy, aimed at keep- ing farm prices up. But industry has also received a boost. And French industry, which was fearful of West German competition, has lost much of i this fear and now rivals the Germans in some sectors, such as heavy electrical engineering. Food is a major expense for Frenchmen, who face an over- all cost-of-living increase of six per cent Ibis year. Italy's economic development since the Second World War is among the most spectacular in Europe. But a recent government re- port said the economy is suing through "a difficult phase of stagnation." Industrial produc- tion was down .1.4 per cenl dur- ing the first nine months of 111 it; year.
