Kennedy went Down to the University of Virginia and blandly asserted that we clearly Are winning the Bat the against inflation by this time there should be Little doubt that our policies of fiscal and monetary restraint Are now As everybody knows there is an election about to take place in a few Days and it is reasonable to expect that the administration would put the Best possible face on existing economic facts stretching things Here and there. But at least they ought to stick to the facts. Unhappily the Nixon administration has not been telling it the Way it speeches and statements not Only by political figures like the vice president but by economic advisers have glossed Over the real Situa Tion. They Pooh Pooh the 0.4 per cent increase in the september consumer Price Index As just one but the month before they were ecstatic about an a gust Rise of Only 0.2 per cent. Economic Council chair Man Paul w. Mccracken observes that for the third Quarter the annual rate was Only 4.2 per cent Down from 5.8 per cent in the second Quarter and a 6.3 per cent in the first Quarter. But the september result a 6.0 per cent seasonally adjusted equivalent raises the possibility that the trend in the october december Quarter could be up again. Meanwhile Mccracken and mobilization budget director George Shultz say we Are on the threshold of recovery Kennedy Trum pets the beginning of a sounder and More sustainable economic yet every economic indicator of the past several weeks indicates that there is no buoyancy to the econ omy despite the expiration of the surtax and higher social Security payments. Unemployment at 5.5 per cent for september was the highest in nearly seven years and the sophisticated guess around town on the october number is 5.7 or 5.8 per cent based on a steady Rise in unemployment insurance applications. In other words the facts in this week before election show that the Nixon game which was designed to Cut Back inflation without creating excessive unemployment has failed. Inflation continues at an unacceptably High rate even if somewhat reduced from the Peak earlier this and unemployment has gone Well beyond what or. Nixon and his team of economic advisers had predicted. But More than that the Economy has slipped so far below its capacity that it is getting hard to imagine what is going to re stimulate it. Privately some econ of economic indicators is worrisome but argue that the underlying trends Are hopeful that is they still think that inflation is receding and an economic expansion is going to get under Way. The trouble is that the Nixon economic team has so often in the past jumped prematurely to the conclusion that turning Points were at hand that their credibility is impaired. The very recovery whose thre shold is now seen was sup posed to be under Way right now. Unemployment claims Are going up right now in a period when unemployment is normally at its Peak for the year. At. The end of sep there were about 2.2 million persons drawing unemployment compensation under state programs a solid 1 million More than november 1969, which most economists take As the starting Point of the present slow Down. The High rate of unemployment feeds consumer concern which is shown by the record rate of personal saving. Nixon s officials suggest that hefty savings offer a Reservoir of buying strength for the future. But that s not the Way businessmen in Industry and in Wall Street look at it. When Consumers save in Stead of spending their Money freely sales decline. And with wages still shoot ing up business profits get squeezed. That was the message or. Nixon got admit that the recent Batch last week and the same message is delivered to administration aides who Ven Ture out to talk to other business groups in various parts of the country. It is hard to predict what Impact the High Cost of Liv ing and the continuing Bur Den of inflation will have on the election a More important question is whether the administration will shift its policy afterwards. If the pocketbook nerve is irritated enough to Cost re publican seats the pressure to go beyond traditional monetary and fiscal policy could mount. The most obvious route to better control of inflation is through a wage Price guidepost policy. If some direct hold Down of wage and Price advances were available then the Federal Reserve system could loosen up on Mone tary policy sufficiently to 3 s t i m u 1 a t e the Economy. That might Crank up the Supply of jobs More quickly. A guidepost policy could also free up fiscal policy for the same objective Federal expenditures could be allowed to grow More quickly. All this flies in the face of or. Nixon s antipathy to guideposts and to Large fed eral deficits. And it would run counter to the philosophy of Strong men in the White House such As George Shultz. But unless the econ omy promptly crosses that promised and shows the reality not just a Promise of expansion there could be irresistible pressure from business labor and the Plain old pub Lic to do something Dif Ferent.
