TUESDAY, APRH, 17, 1951 Business Future Depends Solely on the Point of View •Bi.rrHEvn.LE. (ARK.V COURIER NEWS By T. K. APPI.KGATE (For SAM DAWSON) NEW YORK, April n. (/!>)—Men who make busiiu-ss decisions are increasingly sensitive to forecasts of trends. This Is true whether the predictions concern Individual shifts in .trade patterns, policies, or general Ftonomlc principles. " Perhaps they arouse special interest now when the world Is In conflict and many people see only an uncertain future. Our readiness to look ahead however, is both a denial that there is anything static in our economy and mi implication that we are confident of meeting whatever the coming months or years have in store.' ' How well we prepare for future events may depend on the accuracy of those who interpret and predict economic trends. Their forecasts include short- term and long-term views. Both are In the news today. For the longer look, there is Sumner II. Slicliter, the Harvard economist, with a new book. "What's Ahead for American Businc-s??" He sees the future American system of enterprise as a "more stable, more competitive, mixed economy." Shorter Terra Covered The shorter term is covered in a report for the Twentieth Century fund charting a course its economists believe can achieve "defense without Inflation." Both imply a major need of the future will be the exercise of res- jraint by special interests in their Claims on the economy. The economists of the Twentieth Century fund, a nonprofit research foundation, call for a "reciprocal willingness to sacrifice" among wuge earners, farmers and business. They warn that "inflation cannot be stopped if the pull and haul among groups leads into H political logrolling operation where government helps each group enlarge its money income to nutch increases secured by others." Wilson Plea Echoed This echoes the recent nlca of Defense Mobilization Director Charles E. Wilson for a "subordination of selfish ends" to avoid Intlu- tlon. He urged that every organized ..roup "consider the welfare and Just demands not only of other or- ;anized groups but of the unorgan- zcd, the consumer, the public a.s « v'hole." Slicliter in his book published lo- day says that In the long run prices nust ndjust themselves to labor ;osls. And he predicts the country, liter a decade of rising prices, may lave to choose "between subjecting collective bargaining to fairly dras- lic control and accepting a dollar that does not command confidence because it is expected to fall In '.Hue." During the defense economy, lie said, "union membership will spread, especially among white-collar workers, who will discover in .naily enterprises that the best way to get their wages adjusted for increases in the cost of living is to organize. No lllueprint Offered SHchter offers no blueprint for the structure of the.future economy which lie thinks will be a mixture of direction by the government and by special-interest groups and ot individual pursuit of self-interest. •Some of hts predictions are: "During the foreseeable future, intervention by the government un economic affairs) is quite certain to grow." but lie sees no signs of socialism or planned economy. "Unions will not sponsor nil independent labor party nor be able to take over either the democratic or republic." The pressure or organized groups will finally reach their limit, SHch- ter says; the influence of free employes will grow, and businessmen will have more influence than they possessed in 1950. SHchter issues no time table lor these events.

"This is a story of the power that communism holds over people who are exposed to It at an impressionable age." the actor opined. "It Is a power that often suuercedes that of Gort and family." Film Hurried Along McCarey. long noted as a leisurely director, said he Is hurrying this film along. "Every day that 1 react the papers, 1 feel the urgency to get this picture out," he reported. "I have a cutter working right behind me, getting the picture In shape. And I'm sacrificing the 'Oscar treatment' for speed. I could do a lot of fancy camera angles that might Impress people.
