: PAG€ EIGHT RLYTI1BV1I.I/R (ARK.) COURIER NEWS THE NATION TODAY— U.S. Economic Future Rests On Unity Between Government, Business, Labor and Farmers Jiy James Marloiv WASHINGTON, Jan. 7. </!')—Here is a o,iiick look at wlierc we stand sconomicnlly as we move Into 1050. Tills picture Is based en two reports sent to Congress yesterday: One was the economic report of President Tinman, The other was tha report of his Council of Economic Advisors. With the end of the war and the end of price control, living costs shot up. They hit their peak in the Jail of 1S18. This was the period of great inflation. It worried economist.'* insute and outside the government. I- They knew price.* couldn't continue .shooting ui> Indefinitely. There haci, to be a stop .sometime, they knew. But they feared thai when living costs—prices — stopped going up, they might suddenly turn downwards with a 5iuU1c!i, awful crack. If that happened—the boom end- Ing in a bi^t—it would mean a depression for this country. Boom Is Over Starting i" the Tali of 1948, living costs began to go down, not suddenly and in leaps, but bit by bit, slowly. E. B. Batey, Former Blytheville Man, Dies in Missouri I.ast rllfs for K.

In .short., Jiving cosis, after a drop, ore staying fairly stable find are not going through the root again. Buslne&s is doinff better. of things, Pre.sident Truman said in his report: "Late in 19-19 we stood at the peak of the mfiatluiiEivy, hoom. . . . Today we fire on firmer ground than we were a year ago, . . . The ha.sic economic problem facing tho coiuiiry now is not . . , inflation." i'lea fnr Unify Sound"! The economic advisors agree: "The inevitable end of the inflationary process has come. We. aro now enjoying a recovery movement." But, looking forward they think the country IK even better than now, the Pre.sident and the advisors give some warnings, and some advice. The basic problem facing the; country U.OYT, the President saul, "is to increase production, employment and income.* to complete tn-e recovery from the 1949 downturn atul to go on to the higher levels which will be- made passible by a growing population and rising productivity/', And the council said: "The recovery since last .summer is *>(j]i incomplete, and whether it continues; and we achieve our national ohjcc-i tive of maximum employment, pro- : duct ion and purcho-smg power in 1950 will depend upon the actions of business, labor, farmers, and government in consolidating the strong forces underlying the economy." The President and the council fusscst sonic steps io be inkcn, a\l outlined, in their reports. The point is: They think inflation is over. Instead o! rteiJref.simi, the country got off with a recession. It hasn't fully recovered, and it has to keep plugging to get on. . . - til six years apo u'lii?n he moved to Moorcho»se. He \v;is al.
