  • Description

    President Carter of the United States has introduced voluntary wage and price controls in new effort to fight inflation in his country. In a broadcast to the nation of Wednesday (25 October), he appealed to businessmen and trade unions to limit wage increases to seven per cent, and price rises to five-point-75 per cent. But the American President's wage and price guidelines have already met a barrage of criticism from business and labour organisations. Business men claimed the guidelines would not work, while American trade unions are strongly opposed to a limit on pay increases.
