Could Bush Start new recession Washington a president Bush a Surprise move to seek a grand budget Compromise with Congress could backfire and hand the president the very recession he had hoped to avoid private economists warn. The fear is that cutting the budget deficit by the size being discussed a combination of spending restraints and new taxes in the Range of $60 billion to $100 billion would take a lot of steam out of the Economy. With economic growth Only expected to average an anaemic 2 percent this year such a Wallop could easily push the country into a recession putting an end to the longest peacetime expansion on record. A this could be a classic Case of doing the right thing at die wrong time a said David Jones an economist at Aubrey g. Lanston amp co. In new York. Jones predicted that the Adverse Impact from a budget agreement would hit in late 1991 or Early / 1992, at which time the loss of government spending in both Domestic and military programs and lower disposable income from higher taxes would be enough to trigger an economic slump. A it would be the worst possible environment for the president to run for re election a Jones said in an interview last week. A it could make George Bush a one term however other economists argued that the president is right to take the risk
