Observers speculated that the reason was either a policy dispute or that Brezhnev was ill After the state visit was put off Sadat renewed criticism of the Soviet Union for failing to replace equipment Egypt had lost in the 1973 October war But in recent interviews with 75 economy shows signs of improving probably too much to expect a repeat of that situation given today's problems But a partial return might at least dampen the rate of inflation significantly All this may be a while coming and in the meantime there are many economists who believe that the inflation rate may never return to the 2 per cent and 3 per cent levels of the early 1960s Frank Murphy General chief economist views 6 per cent to 65 per cent as the lowest that can be expected Others say the low may be 8 percent Murphy points to rising standards of living around the world putting pressure on food supplies in particular The most readily accessible raw materials for industry are about used up he observes leaving the remaining supplies more difficult to obtain THE CARTEL mentality sweeping those nations with resources needed by the industrial world is another factor promising higher costs In the past US consumers enjoyed the benefits of low-cost foreign merchandise that poured into this country Now production costs in some European countries are coming close to those in the United States And without those low-cost goods coming in US manufacturers are freer to design and sell their products for more money Beyond that it is obvious that for a decade up to last vear energy prices lagged behind other goods and services a situation now reversed and not likely to be reversed again now and 1980 things are going to be tight more than they are easy" one steel industry executive concludes All that may be true but some of the experts now see several factors coming along to help push down the inflation rate One is a huge drop in the price of a number of major commodities including steel scrap textile fibers and most astoundingly wheat and some other grains TO SOME EXTENT this represents simply the impact the recession has had on overall demand If there is unexpected relief in food inflation there is an outside possibility the consumer price index may rise less than 5 per cent this year before adding in whatever happens on federal energy policy Economists are not sure that will happen in 1976 however Some fear the all-out attack on recession could lead to too much stimulation of the economy and a renewed climb in the inflation rate next year JOHNNY: suppose you can rustle up
