Northwest Arkansas TIMES, Man., Sept. 2, 1974 'Â· 7 FAYETTEVILLE, ARKANSAS Ateany Says Vast Bureaucracy Could Control Prices " WASHINGTON (AP) _ -CIO President George Meany Slsays "there is every in- ^dication" that the United Slates ;;ls heading into a depression, -Â· possibly worse than in the -- 1930s, with business failures ^and widespread unemployment. ~ "I thought we had eliminated .-really the major causes of de- ~pression in this' country during ~the Roosevelt davs ... but still, "in spite of that, 1 can see a de- ~pression coming unless there Is a quick turnaround," said organized labor's c h i e f spokos- an. Although "dÂ«lighled and relieved" by tiie change at the White House, Meany said he doesn't Ihink President Ford will he able to work economic miracles. In a pre-Labor Day interview, he said the nation's economic problems are so widespread that the only way to control prices is through a vast government bureaucracy, during World War H. But he added: "I just can't see President Ford doing that any more than Nixon would do as menls, Teamsters President Frank E. Filsimmons called for a contingency plan of economic controls lo freee all it." Also, Meany said he is discouraged that Ihe same ceo nomic experts who advised Nixon are now advising Ford. "The same people are there making the policies," he said. LABOR LEADER The leader of the 13.5-milllon- member labor federation said he was hopeful that Ford would come away from the upcoming economic summit conference with' a long-range program for dealing with inflation thai would lower interesl rates, pump money into social programs, finance housing construction and allocate government funds for home mortgages. "We are suffering -now from a tremendous lack of confidence" and this, he suggested, would help restore confidence. The 80-year-old Meany talked to a small group of reporters who specialize in l a b o r coverage for two hours on a broad range of subjects. His comments were for release Sunday. Among other things, he said: -- Former President Richard M. Nixon, by resigning from office, has suffered enough punishment. "I think most of Ihe people would buy that" if President Ford decided to pardon Nixon. --He regards a Ford-Rockefeller ticket "very difficult to beat in 1976" if inflation is brought under control .or pre- busincss transactions for least 30 days; afterward Cost of Living at the Council would roll back exorbitant price in- roases. Jerry Wurf, president of the American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employ- es, said "something more than summits and task forces, rhetoric and cosmetics" is needed Today In History to avert what lie called the most critical economic crisis since Hie 1929 stock market crash. President I. W. Abel of the United Steelworkers u r g e d President Ford to loosen credit, close tax loopholes for business and provide expanded public works and job programs to overcome inflation. Labor Secretary Brennan called for restraint and sacri fice lo control inflation, but added that "we also must make sure that the working men am women of this country do not have to carry more than their fair share of the load in this effort." The National Right to Work Committee used the holiday to urge Ford to help "return La- jcr Day to the \vorkingman" by pushing for legislation that would outlaw compulsory union membership. Meany, commenting on the economy, said "there is a long- range job to be done, and I'm just hopelul thai Ford will be able to do something. But there has got to be new ideas. There has got lo be innovalive ideas. There has got to be new directions. We can't continue going down the hill." The labor chieftain rejected Treasury Secretary William E. Simon's suggestion for a return o wage-price guidelines, saying hat would be as bad as wage controls, which Ford already lias ruled out. Employers, he said, would enforce wage guidelines, but there would be no enforcement on prices. Meany, who a year ago'pre- dicted a recession at this time, forecast that if a depression hil it would be worse than in the reached in the thirties-- then wÂ« are in real trouble." have more people to 1930s.
