*• ACS TWO Bl/TTHEYILLE (ARK.)" COURIER HEW1 THURSDAY, JANUARY B, 1958 Business News from Foreign Lands Tells of Good Times By SAM DAWSON NEW YORK (AP) — Good times are spreading fast around the globe. Business news from other lands shine out today as President Eisenhower reports to Congress on the state of the nation and asks for a 10-year plan of foreign aid. The stated aim of the long-terra glowing reports of full employ- program is to allow forward military planning and to keep econom- ment, expanding markets among Europeans themselves, increased Ic aid flowing to such corners of output of factories and mines, the globe as haven't yet climbed I growing export markets comes securely on the prosperity band j other news. Many of the govern- wagon. ! ments in Europe, as .well as Aus- Leaving the pros and cons ofjtralla and to some extent Canada foreign aid proposals to Washing- and South America, have the trou ton, let's look at the reports of prosperity overseas: Sizing up the whole picture, the United Nations reports that the dollar value of world trade in 1954 <thB latest, period for which figures are complete) was three times what It was in 1937. Reports from individual countries indicate a sizable gain in 195S, and expeota- "tlons of even more in 1956. Above Prewar Levels In most of Western Europe, the output of mines and factories is j now well above prewar levels. More striking, perhaps, is the! upgrading in European standards j of living. Automobile ownership is I spreading to classes that never! dreamed of driving cars before j The same movement is shown in; the purchase of electrical home • appliances. ' I All of this hasn't been an unmixed blessing. Along with the, bles that go with "excess prosperity." Fat pay checks mean competition for consumer goods. Prices go up and so do demands for higher wages. Inflation becomes a real problem. Also, Europeans, Australians. South Americans all would like more of the shiny American sad- gets that they can get dollars to pay for. And "the dollar gap" between what they sell us and what they get from us continues—and is plugged largely by U. S. foreign aid. In other corners of the world- tie so-called underdeveloped—the cry for more American dollars to develop resources and build industries goes on without letup. LUXORA NEWS By MRS.
