Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 16, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta BlllilPllIIlIIiil Prices rise on import goods Business Talk lalurdoy, October 16, 1971 THE LCTHBRIDGE HERAID 23 JIM MAYBIE Mil A CURSORY check of some local bus inesses show that President Nixon's eco- nomic measures now are beini felt in LeUibridge. Prices of most Japanese am European imports are up by a, much as 10 per cent. Dealers in Japanese and German car imports report the price of new cars up eight 10 per cent. That amounts tr. to per unit. Some makes have been diffi cult to obtain and some dealers have been without product for three weeks. The 1972 Japanese motor cycles will be costing about 10 per cent more. Such other import items as cameras, radios, television tape and record players have gone up or will be going up seven to 10 per cent. Some businessmen are rais- ing prices on present stock slightly so the increase in the new equipment will not be as noticeable at first. If Nixon's measures continue the full in- crease will eventually have to be applied to new import mer- chandise While the price of Japanese and European merchandise is rising, sales of American- manufactured motor vehicles are swinging upward. One local dealer expects his rate of sales to increase 30 per cent because of the Nixon measures. Nixon's freeze on prices and wages has kept American manufacturers from increas- ing prices to 5600 on 1972 models so far. Manufacturers are expected to ask for some increase next month, however. Bond prices Sharp advance posted Trade war The way things have been go- ing lately in international trade, mutterings of a world trade war have been increas- ing. Fortunately there have been! some heavy guns warning about the folly of such action but there are still some dan- gers. Once one nation takes a strong retaliatory step against another, actions and reactions have a danger of snowballing, other countries become in- volved and a full-scale, all-out the typewriter partially secret ed under his coat. Inspector Ralph Michelson from whom I had stolen the case for his glasses, has hac his revenge. Common market Read with interest some excerpts from the October is sue of EXECUTIVE promoting a Canada-U.S. common mar ket. My knowledge of the ramifi- cations of such a pact wouldn't cover the bottom of a thimble so considerable research wil have to be done before it's brought up in this column again.

I wonder what the interna- tional repercussions to Nixon's measures are going to be. Retaliation On the subject of retaliatioi or revenge, I just thought it would be only fair to let you know I didn't get off scot-free from my shoplifting adventure a couple of weeks ago. When I returned to work Tuesday I discovered my type- miter had been stolen. An alert photographer, how- ever, managed to snap a pic- ture of the culprit as he es- caped from the newsroom with the emergence of Japan as a one-member trading bloc. "In Canada, we have adhered to a policy of multilateral trade which was sound in the he said. "But when you see multilateral trade drying up with the creation of each new trading bloc, you have to change your stance. We are seeing the development of rading blocs in this decade; it s unfortunate but now there is no choice." B.C.'s Premier Bennett has similar views quoted in the magazine. He has recommend- ed reducing current duties be- the two countries by 10 >er cent a year for 10 years. The only industry which should be protected is agricul- ure where protection should ake the form of quotas, not .ariffs. Canada will never be a great nation without he aid.

H. Smith Ltd. Customs Broker CODTTJ Phm. By PETER LEICIINITZ Canadian Press Staff Writer Canadian slock markets, Buf- fering from five successive weeks of declines, received an injection of new life Thursday following an announcement by the federal government which included corporate tax cuts and other measures aimed at stimu- lating the countries' sagging economy. Investors reacted with an en- thusiasm Canadian markets have not seen in months. Fol- lowing the announcement, the Toronto industrial index climbed more than four points during the first 10 minutes of trading Friday. It was the larg- est 10-minute advance on record. However, the one-day ad- vance was not enough to erase the declines recorded during the three previous sessions. At New York, the market plunged sharply lower for the second consecutive session in moderate trading. On the Moiitreal and Cana- dian exchanges, the composite index lost 2.42 pouits, closing at! 170.54. Combined volume on the two exchanges was 4.04 million shares, compared with 4.46 mil- lion last week- DOWN ON BALANCE On Ihe week, the Toronjo market's industrial index, a prime indicator of market movement lost .99 to 104.94. Fri- day it posted its sharpest one- day advance in 15 months, gain- ing 3.45 points. Volume for the week was 7.87 million shajcs compared with 9.04 million last week. However, Canadian markets were closed Monday, Oct. II, Thanksgiving Day. At New York, the Dow Jones industrial average of 30 key blue-chip issues fell 19.06 points to 874.85. Volume at New York 61.07 million shares. Last week 74 21 shares changed hands. Gold issues slumped sharply lower for the second successive week, as the price of gold con- tinued to move erratically on the world's bullion markets.
