It is now around 11.5 per cent, and many borrowers are convinced it is plain robbery. Many consumers feel the same way. noting the tendency of businesses to pass on their higher costs in the form of higher prices. In 1947 the prime rate was only 1.75 per cent, or roughly one-sixth what it is Soccer Star Banned FRANKFURT, Germany -Haiti defender Ernst Jean-Joseph became the first soccer jlayer in World Cup history to K banned from the champion- hips because he admittedly took a prohibited drug. now. Ironically, the Justification offered for high interest rates is that they are anti-inflationary. The Federal Reserve Board, for example, insists that a tight-money, high-interest rate policy is needed to c u r b inflation. --Ravings, sometimes known as savings.

An increasingly common technique for living on a busied budget is to borrow money in order to meet bills. The appearance of a budget remains, but its guidelines are ignored, often out of necessity. The budget is fudged. Pass through -- remember the term; it has become the popular justification for price increases. The raw material supplier passes through to the manufacturer who passes through to the wholesaler. On through the system the in crease moves, passed like i bucket of water from one to another until it reaches you. And that's where the bucket stops; you're left holding it.
