He said President Nixon's policy is a "retaliation of what's been happening over the years.

Today the U.S. has a" little over $10 billion in gold- "There is an unfavorable balance of payments," he noted- , .....-..This is due in part, he said, to increased investment of foreign money into U.S. savings institutions. There are no limitations to interest paid to'foreign money so. a net $30 billion deficit has developed over the past three years.: , .,-, , --. •.-/.". •. . .. !•• In additipn, - a deficit of payments amounting to $10 billion was recorded from 'February through August of 1970, The rest of the world owed the U.S. $71 billion, and the U.S. owed the world $81 billion. The .deficit has been building since 1968 when a $1.6 billion deficit first developed. • Dr- Nelson predicted that it will take longer than the President's Nov. 13 target date to improve the foreign money situation. He did .not give a possible date. Touching briefly on the wage- price-rent .freeze in the U.S., he said that -President Nixon ."has •rekindled a spark of hope, , of. anticipation of economic .-development." : ••• What after the freeze? .Will people quit saving a little bit more and start spending a little bit more?
