Daily News Analysis
The man who will become
President-elect Richard Nix-
on's top economic adviser has a
dream that many economists
feel is an impossibility.
,,Paul McCracken, Edmund
Ezra Day professor in the busi-
ness administration school and
newly appointed chairman of
the Council of Economic Ad-
visers, believes that the Amer-
ican economy can achieve full
employment without inflation.
In a news conference yester-
day, McCracken said the cur-

ed to increase. But if measures
are used to hold the price level
down by holding back the grow-
th of consumer demand, the
employment level usually drops.
McCracken said he does not
think this relationship is ne-
cessarily valid. "The empirical
evidence is muddy on the rela-
tionship between employment
and prices."
Inflation must not continue
at its present level for four rea-
sons, McCracken said. First, he
said, as inflation continues, busi-
nesses begin to,/make decisions

port goods less attractive on the
world market.
But McCracken also finds the
levels of unemployment preval-
ent in the late '50's and early
'60s unacceptable.
Economists usually speak in
terms of two major types of
unemployment, general and
structural. General unemployment
is caused by the presence in the
labor force of'workers who are
normally employable but who
are out of work because of a
lack of demand for their pro-

duce unemployment even be-
yond the point of eliminating
general unemployment.
He said that structural un-
employment could be reduced
through job training programs,
but refused to speculate on
whether such programs would
be high on the spending priori-
ties of the Nixon administra-
McCracken optimisticly feels
that all this can be done with-
out inflation. He said the first
step is to cut down consumer de-
mand, which is currently in-
creasing faster than the produc-

There will be next semester
when a new coffee house, the Al-
ternative, opens in the State Street
campus area.
Organized by a group of pro-
fessors and students who describe
themselves as "politically orient-
ed," the coffee house hopefully,
will provide a place where stu-

At its outset, the coffee house'
will have a governing board made
up of members of its Student As-
sociation, (students h o I d i n g
shares), faculty members, and em-
ployes. Profits from the Alter-
native will be divided equallyx
among these three groups to use
as they wish.

Even a newsstand with political
material is envisioned.
In the true spirit of the un-
derground, planners expect the
basement below the coffee house
to be used as headquarters for
various political groups. A mime-
ograph machine will be available
for student use.
