Soviet Jewry. He praised the WJC
role in seeking to ease tensions
'between East and West and urged
that it continue in this direction,
viewing it as a prescription to help
Soviet Jews and reduce interna-
tional tension.
Alfonsin told Bronfman that
Argentina's historical relation-
ship with Spain placed it in a good
position to encourage what Spain
has already pledged to do: open
diplomatic relations with Israel.
The WJC leader told Alfonsin
that Jews everywhere were
pleased at his election and the re-
turn of Argentina on the road to
_ democracy. Bronfman noted that
he had previously refused to meet
Argentine leaders but now that
constitutional democracy had

been restored he was honored to
be in Argentina.

Bronfman especially noted with
appreciation the introduction by
Alfonsin of legislation aimed at
banning racial and religious dis-
crimination which made specific
reference to bias against Jews.
The Argentine leader said that
the country's foreign debt prob-
lem could not be ignored and that
he had every intention of proceed-
ing with repayment within a pro-
per time frame. Bronfman said
that the image of the new demo-
cratic Argentina would help with
this problem in the United States
and that he personally would seek
to further this positive perception
of Argentina in America.

Former adviser says Reagan
favors Israel free trade zone

Boston (JTA) — Dr. Martin
Feldstein, former chairman of
President Reagan's council of
economic advisers, told more than
400 leaders of the Israel Bond
I
Organization that the Reagan
Administration is in favor of a
trade zone between the
fi t , _
United States and Israel similar
'
to the one that Israel already has
with the European Common
Market.
Such an agreement, he indi-
cated, might alleviate many of Is-
rael's economic difficulties, in-
cluding its high rate of inflation,
trade problems and budget de-
ficits.
He told the Jewish leaders from
the United States and Canada,
meeting at the 1984 national
leadership conference of Israel
Bonds, that he knows "how impor-
= tant Israel Bonds are for Israel
and its economy. I share your ad-
miration and your affection for Is-
rael. I congratulate you on your
efforts."
Turning to the American
economy, Feldstein predicted that
after the November election cer-
tain steps would have to be taken
to reduce the national deficit, in-
cluding an eight percent decrease
in government spending and an
eight percent increase in taxes,
which he said would bring about a
balanced budget by the end of
1989.
He said tha if policies remained
unchanged, then the American
public could look forward to an-
nual government deficits of $250
billion until the end of the decade.
Feldstein stated that, in his
opinion, President Reagan is per-
sonally committed to reducing the
deficits and government spending
and would accept a tax increase to
lower the deficit but only as a last
resort.
Among the taxes Feldstein pro-
- posed are a value added tax simi-
lar to the one used in Europe, and
a restructuring of personal and
corporate income taxes.
In a cable addressed to David B.
Hermelin of Detroit, national
campaign chairman, and
Yehudah Halevy, president of the
L Israel Bond Organization,
President Chaim Herzog of Israel
urged the Isreal Bond leaders to
help Israel overcome its current

zone.

economic difficulties by providing
"support for our effort to continue
building our infrastructure."
Herzog recalled the key role
that Bonds have played in the de-
velopment of his country since
1951. "During my years of service
to Israel," he said, "I have always
known the Bond organization as a
source of strength and support for
all our economic endeavors."
He singled out for special
recognition the members of the
President's Club, an honor society
of top-level purchasers which
Herzog endorsed at a Bond con-
ference in Israel last January. "I
am sure," he states, "that the
magnificent example you have set
will inspire others to join this
honor society of our leading sup-
porters."
