Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - November 29, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta i FIB LBinvniWUB MI Inflation bogey licked BUENOS AIRES Argentina's new Peronist rulers claim to have removed the fear which haunts nearly every government in the world monetary inflation. The if it will be the more astonishing in which until a few months ago suffered from one of the highest inflation rates anywhere. Prom seven per cent in the rate zoomed to 21 per cent in 39 per cent in 1971 and more than 60 per cent in 1972 and threatened to pan 100 per cent this year. The announcement that the inflation bogey had been halted came from Economy Minister Jose Gelbard after a meeting with President Juan Peron. the first five months of the current we had inflation at 82 per the minister told reporters. the follow- ing five nothing that The first five months of this year were the final chapter of nearly seven yean of right- wing military rule. The following five months saw the start of Argentina's second Peronist era.

The economy minister's statement on follow- ed a first meeting between Peron and hit and it went on to suggest stabilization of the economy was to last. Neither wage increases nor price rises were even discuss- ed at the the minister said. just said that there is no inflation so why should there be any wage he told a ques- The government's trump card in controlling inflation so far has been the device of setting maximum prices for a broad range of basic goods below prices reigning on May DENOUNCE OFFENDERS There have been some abuses but the un- like many previous Argentine have a vast par- ty organization ready to denounce offending shopkeepers to authorities. The penalties include closure of business. So in most cases the mere threat of action appears to have been enough to achieve an across-the-board markdown of price es- pecially in food and clothing. once the staple diet of working-class is still too expen- sive for most people to buy. Despite Argentina's vast ex- panse of fertile pastures the pampas the military government introduced beefless weeks during which domestic beef consumption was banned. This left some of the world's best steak restaurants apologetically offering chicken and goat. The beefless weeks have ended since the Peronists took but there are still periods when the sale of meat in restaurants is prohibited and it can be difficult to obtain good beef for dinner at home. A new phenomenon which has appeared since May is the scarcity of some other basic par- ticularly onions and potatoes. But with neighboring Chile facing inflation of up to per cent in and other Latin American countries also plagued by Argentines are hoping the Peronist claim will hold good.
