By 'llie Associated Press The resumption of discount financing by General Motors Corp. on some new cars and trucks may have been designed to cushion what otherwise could have been a sharp plunge in sales, an analyst says. Monday's decision by GM comes one week after the 1988 models officially went on sale. GM is offering the 8.8 percent financing on selected 1985 and ]986 models, beginning Monday, through its credit subsidiary, General Motors Acceptance Corp. SEOUL, South Korea (AP) — The Reagan administration today asked private and development banks to come up with $29 billion in additional loans over the next three years to help developing countries improve their living standards. U.S. Treasury Secretary James A. Baker HI unveiled the proposal at a news conference before the opening of the joint International Monetary Fund and World Bank Conference in Seoul. To get the money, developing countries will have to adopt new policies "to promote growth and balance of payments adjustment and to reduce inflation," he said. At the end of last year developing countries were in arrears on $43 billion of their overall debt, which is expected to total Jl trillion by the end of 1985. The World Bank provides long-term loans for development projects, while the IMF provides short- term loans to help countries with credit problems and helps them arrange loans with commercial banks by setting conditions for economic reform. They both have the same 149 member governments. The United States is the major conlribulor to both international organizations, and U.S. agreement is needed for any major changes in functions or financing.
