B4 TUESDAY, JANUARY 30, 1996 Money THE SALINA JOURNAL T UNEMPLOYMENT RATES Salina's jobless rate down from year ago By The Associated Press Salina's unemployment rate dropped to 3.7 percent in December, down a full percentage point from December 1994. The Saline County unemployment rate reflected the change, dropping from 4.6 percent in December 1994 to 3.6 percent last month. Kansas' unemployment rate declined from 4.9 percent in December 1994 to 3.4 percent last month. Kansas had 4 percent unemployment in November 1995. Saline County reported 26,804 employed workers and 1,289 unemployed workers in December 1994. Those numbers were 28,776 employed and 1,080 unemployed by December 1995. Kansas had 1,298,844 employed workers last month, with 46,209 looking for work. However, the number of jobs between December 1994 and December 1995 increased by 34,828. The biggest job gain from November to December, said Human Resources Secretary Wayne Franklin, was in Wichita "and was a direct result of striking (Boeing machinist) workers returning to work." Wichita's unemployment rate dropped from 5.7 percent in December 1994 to 3.7 percent in December 1995. Also showing statewide job gains were the transportation- public utilities, trade and finance-insurance-real estate segments. T INTEREST RATES Analysts expect interest rate relief Federal Reserve to combat slow economy by reducing interest rates, analysts say By MARTIN CRUTSINGER Tlie Associated Press WASHINGTON— The Federal Reserve, which supplied a small dose of interest-rate relief in December, will provide more to combat a dramatic slowing of the economy, private analysts say. Many economists said they believed the next Fed interest rate reduction could come as soon as Wednesday at the end of a two-day meeting of the Federal Open Market Committee, the closed-door strategy sessions that Fed policymakers have eight times a year. "The Fed has been looking for windows of opportunity to ease and there is one open right now because it is clear that the economy has slowed," said Lyle Gramley, chief economic consultant with the Mortgage Bankers Association and a former Fed board member. The central bank cut interest rates twice last year, once in July and then again in December, pushing its target for the federal funds rate, "The Fed has been looking for windows of opportunity to ease and there is one open right now." Lyle Gramley economic consultant the interest that banks charge each other, from 6 percent down to 5.5 percent at the end of the year. Both moves triggered corresponding quarter-point reductions in commercial banks' prime lending rate, the benchmark for millions of business and consumer loans. Analysts said if the Fed moves Wednesday to trim the funds rate to 5.25 percent as they expect, it will push the prime rate down as well. It currently stands at 8.5 percent. The Fed doubled the funds rate in seven moves from February 1994 to February 1995 to keep the economy from overheating and increasing inflation. That strategy did work to slow economic growth but now there are concerns that the economy may be weakening too much. The overall economy, as measured by a newly revised gross domestic product", showed total output growing at an annual rate of 3.2 percent in the July-September quarter of last year. However, many economists believe that GDP growth slowed to around 2 percent in the October-December quarter and has slowed even further, to around 1 percent, in the January-March quarter. A survey released Monday by the National Association of Business Economists found 67 percent expecting sluggish growth over the next six months, with much of the pessimism coming from economists for manufacturing companies. The NABE survey was more pessimistic than one taken three months ago, and David Berson, chief economist at the Federal National Mortgage Association, said this highlighted concerns that with growth slowing so much, some unexpected event could tip the country into a downturn. That is the reason most analysts believe the central bank will lower interest rates. NEW YORK STOCK EXCHANGE Name ACE Ltd ADT AT&T AbtLab AMD AetnLf Agnlcog Ahmans AlrProd Dkr.
