B4 SATURDAY, OCTOBER 19, 1996 Money THE SALINA JOURNAL TRADE Trade deficit rises again Commerce figures show it's the 2nd-worst deficit in past 5 years By The Associated Press WASHINGTON — The U.S. trade deficit narrowed only modestly to $10.8 billion in August, the second-worst showing in five years, as the deficit with China climbed to an all-time high. The Commerce Department report Friday showed that the August deficit was down only 6.6 percent from a July shortfall of $11.6 billion, the worst showing since the government began tracking trade in goods and services on a monthly basis in 1992. The huge deficits in July and August left the trade imbalance for the year running at an annual rate of $112 billion, meaning that the trade deficit, which has widened every year of the Clinton administration, will increase this year as well. Last year's deficit in goods and services was $105.1 billion. Both GOP challenger Bob Dole and Reform Party candidate Ross Perot have sought to make trade an issue in this year's campaign, contending that the rising deficits have cost millions of American jobs. But Commerce Secretary Mickey Kantor, a key strategist in the president's re-election effort, blamed the overall deficits on a mismatch between strong economic growth in the United States and weakness overseas. He said despite this, U.S. exports are growing faster than imports. "The trade deficit is on a long- term path to improvement even though the United States is growing faster than its trading partners," Kantor said. Private analysts were not as optimistic, with many worried about entrenched barriers to exports in countries such as China and a rise in the dollar over the past 12 months which was making U.S. goods more expensive on overseas markets. "People who had been optimistic that we were finally going to see a turnaround in trade this year are going to be disappointed," said Lawrence Chimerine, chief economist at the Washington-based Economic Strategy Institute. "It's very hard to put a positive spin on these numbers." Some economists said the worse- than-expected August deficit would act as a further drag on economic growth in the third quarter. Cheryl Katz, senior economist at Merrill Lynch in New York, said she believed the overall economy, as measured by the gross domestic product, grew at an annual rate of just 1.7 percent from July through September. This would be far below the 4.7 percent second quarter pace, making it more likely the Federal Reserve will continue to delay raising interest rates since the economy is slowing so much on its own.

The lawmaker, Rep. Bill Archer of Texas, based his estimate on figures from the Congressional Budget Office, Congress's chief budget adviser. However, the Clinton administration, including Medicare officials, wouldn't confirm it. The CBO figures, which date back to last May, estimated that the 1997 monthly premium will rise to $44.40 a month based on projected growth of the program. On Thursday, the Los Angeles Times quoted unidentified sources as saying the premium will rise to $43.80 a month in 1997. The paper also quoted uniden- tified sources as saying charges to senior citizens for a first hospital stay will rise to $760 next year from $736. The Clinton administration is to announce the actual 1997 figures later this month. Medicare is divided into two parts. The hospitalization portion of the program, known as Part A, is paid for through a 2.9 percent payroll tax split by employers and employees. The part of the program covering doctor visits, known as Part B, is paid for with general taxpayer money and monthly premiums. The premiums are set to cover 25 percent of the cost of the doctor-visit portion of the program. Archer, who chairs the House panel that helped draft the Republican plan to cut projected Medicare spending by $270 billion over seven years, released an estimate of the 1997 premium as part of an effort to reclaim the Medicare issue from the Clinton administration.
