WASHINGTON (AP) The International Monetary Fund drew a grim picture of world inflation Sunday, saying economic conditions in in- dustrial countries point to rapidly-rising prices this year cind nest The fund said in its annual report that the major world economies are booming and will continue to do so in 1974. making it difficult to arrest the inflationary spiral. It urged its 126 member countries, and especially the industrial econommies. "to give this problem a very high priority in the formulation and conduct of economic policies "The paramount con- siderations of course, are that high rates of inflation im- pair economic performance and create economic and social inequities, currently altecting populations throughout the world. the hind said. The report said prices in Canada, the United States, Europe and Japan rose six per cent irom the second half ot 1972 to the first half of this e a r Combined, these economies grew by seven per cent in the same period, it said Countries now face the challenge of slowing down ec- nomic growth without starting a recession, the lund said The report appeared pessimistic on whether infla- tion can be brought under rein "The problem of controlling and reducing price inflation in the industrial obvious and important by no means easy to resolve." it said Besides cooling off their economies through use of their federal budgetrs and control of monev and credit, countries should supplement these anti-inflation tools with wage-price controls or other policies affecting incomes, the tund said The report said that it is not 0 n I the international economic boom that caused the big spurt in inflation. One 01 the reasons was the U.S decision to drop mandatory wage-price controls in January and go to a largely voluntgary system it said.

These efforts of the government are aimed at m- sulating the Canadian economy and consumer from the effects of worldwide infla- tion and shortage oi some goods That's a verv difficult thing to do m a country that is in such large proportion dependent on foreign sales." Mr. Frechette said While frowning on artificial trade barriers erected bv Can- ada or any other country, he said the CMA floes iavr el torts to use more ol Canada s raw re.souices for manufacturing in this country rather than ex- porting them, to create more lobs. This- would also enable Canada to increase its exports of manufactured goods "The real key to the thing is lobs We still have a substan- tial proportion oi the labor force who are not usefully em- ploved WORKS ON BROAD FRONT The CMA. worked to en- courage Canadian exports "on a pretU broad tront" with meetings. reports, background material and educational courses in methods and techniques of selling abroad 'But all the marketing help in the world is not going to count lor very much il the business climate is un- favorable and manufacturers cannot be competitive abroad in price and design." Mr Frechette said in a recent ar- ticle in the Federal industry- department's magazine.

Canada's automakers are discovering as 1974 models go on display at dealers across the country. Brand loyalty in cars and trucks is deteriorating, as it is tor all manufacturers, says an official of Ford Motor Co. of Canada Ltd It may have taken little Motors (Canada) Ltd. to prove the point to the Big General Motors and Chrysler With introduction of its 1972 ears American Motors added a 'buyer protection plan" that included a guarantee over 12 months or 12.000 miles of no- cost repairs for any fault attributed to the company There was also a second-year optional owners warranty for a small charge. 'The buyer protection plan was the largest single contrib- uting (actor in AMC's sales in- crease President William Picket! says American Motors in the 1973 model year ended Aug 20 lifted its share of North American car sales in Canada to 3 6 per cent from 2 9 in 1972. SICK OF PROMISES Ford of Canada, after what it calls 12 months of intensive indepth research in Canada, has concluded that the buying public is sick and tired of cor- porate promises. The "con- sumerism phenomenon" had exposed a big gap between what customers expected and the service they actually got. Larry Johnson, Ford's na- tional service manager, an- nounced an extensive updating of the compan) 's dealer ser- vice network at a preview showing of 1974 models "More and more people are shopping around for value and tor he said. "This puts the whole marketplace, including the automotive market, up for grabs "Quitefrankly. I believe that the manufacturer who solves the .service dilemma in the "70s could own the markets of the 70s D. Baker. General Mo- tors of Canada president, noted at a preview of his com- pany's new cars that a greater proportion of young people have become buyers. DO THINGS DIFFERENTLY 'The-new generation of car buyers think, act. dress and experience things differently. They have different ex- Toronto mines, industrials (Supplied by Richardson Securities of Canada) pectations of a car They have different standards of beheveability in advertising." Many of them, he said, have a vastly improved knowledge about such things as wheelbase, horsepower, bore and stroke or other vehicle specifications. Mr Johnson labels the No. 1 customer demand of today as "Fix my car That translates into satisfactory repairs, value received on service dollar spent, convenient ser- vice and courteous treatment. It seems to have been the in- tention of American Motors, ranked 69th in the Financial Post's list of 100 largest com- panies in Canada in terms of total dollar sales. FORD TOPS LIST Ford of Canada is first on the list, GM second and Chrysler Canada fifth. Mr Johnson says business- men must learn this is an age of you lirst realize that the guy who writes the TV commer- cials for banks is not the same one who grants the loan." It has created the gap be- tween expectations and per- formance and spun off the consumerism movement Too often, he observes, busi- nessmen react to con- sumerism by either a traditional head-insand approach or by blaming con- sumer activism on social quacks, dewey-eyed reticians or anti-materialists.
