B4 SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 2, 1996 Money ^ THE SALINA JOURNAL j|iaSBK!K*-'«Bai!WY?&'»F'>^^ T ECONOMY Clinton cheers low jobless rate BRIEFLY Economist says latest news 'is an incumbent politician's dream' By MARTIN CRUTSINGER The Associated Press WASHINGTON — Unemployment held steady at a low 5.2 percent in October as businesses resumed hiring new workers at a brisk pace — fresh evidence, President Clinton said, of a vibrant economy just days before the election. Clinton, who has made the economy the centerpiece of his re-election drive, contended Friday's report proved the falsehood of challenger Bob Dole's claim of a looming downturn. "It is time for my opponent and those on the other side to stop all this doom and gloom talk about America," Clinton told cheering supporters in Santa Barbara, Calif. "In spite of what he wants you to think, when it comes to the economy, the sky is not falling." Friday's employment report showed businesses added an additional 210,000 workers in October. In other reports, the Commerce Department said that orders to U.S. factories surged by 2.7 percent in September, the biggest advance in two years. And the Index of Leading Indicators, a key barometer of future activity, rose for an eighth consecutive month. Private economists said the blizzard of new reports underscored the challenge Dole faces in trying to convince voters that the economy is not doing well. "This is another set of numbers that is an incumbent politician's dream," said Robert Dederick, chief economic consultant for the Northern Trust Co. of Chicago. "We have comfortable growth but not so rapid as to trigger inflation concerns." Economists were skeptical about Dole's warnings that Wednesday's ECONOMIC INDICATOR United States employment ECONOMIC INDICATOR Index of leading „ a NDJFMAMJJASO J995J996 J rartment of Labor ~ AP report of sharp deceleration in the gross domestic output, from 4.7 percent to 2.2 percent, could be signaling an outright recession. Rather, they argued that the slowdown was just what is needed to prolong the recovery, already the third longest on record, by keeping inflation in check.

Contract talks appeared to hit a snag in Detroit. The United Auto Workers canceled a meeting of GM local leaders that had been planned for today in anticipation of an agreement. GM said 16,609 of its workers were idle because of strikes that began'Tuesday at a truck assembly plant in Janesville, Wis., and a metal-stamping plant in Indianapolis. An additional 2,300 were being laid off Friday night. GM said 18,958 additional U.S. workers remained off their jobs because of lingering parts shortages from the three-week Canadian Auto Workers strike settled last week. America Online draws fire for restructured fees NEW YORK — America Online's attempt to spiff up its service by offering a flat-rate price is drawing fire not for what it will do, but for what it won't. The online provider won't be asking subscribers whether they want to switch over to the new service, but will double their rates automatically unless the user takes the initiative to notify the company otherwise. "How can they not notify you?" asked America Online user Marcia Gelbart in Washington. "That really aggravates me." The nation's largest online service announced this week that it will offer a new $19.95 monthly fee, effective Dec. 1, that will provide unlimited access to America Online's electronic services as well as the Internet. What the announcement didn't say was that its 7 million subscribers, who currently pay $9.95 a month for 5 hours and $2.95 an hour thereafter, will automatically be switched to the $19.95 plan unless they contact the company. British Telecom and MCI discuss merger NEW YORK — British Telecommunications is in talks to merge with MCI in a mammoth deal that could be worth $20 billion and rank as the biggest-ever foreign purchase of a U.S. company. MCI Communications Corp. disclosed Friday that the talks were under way and said an announcement could come as early as Monday. British Telecommunications PLC, the dominant phone company in Great Britain, already owns 20 percent of MCI, the No. 2 long- distance company in the United States. MCI's stock is worth about $20 billion, so a purchase of the remaining 80 percent should bring at least $16 billion.
