Jerry Jasinowski, head of the
economic policy group in the1
Carter transition office, said
that if current conditions con-
tinue, there is a "high .proba-
bility" that a stimulus will be!
necessary.
A tax rebate, Carter's advis-
ers said, would have the quick-
est impact on the economy.
BUT THE CARTER economic
team insisted that a tax rebate
would be only part of any po-
tential package to boost the
economy. Also included would
be a limited program to create3
jobs and safeguard against in-

flation.
And while they carefully re-
flected Carter's own public as-
sertions that no decision has
been made on an, economic
boost, they said the signs point
that way unless an economic
miracle occurs in December.
Even though an official de-
cision to ask Congress for a
tax rebate)isn't likely until near
the start of Carter's term Jan.
20, they say work has begun to
have it ready to go if conditions
warrant.
THE CARTEJ' TEAM is look-
ing particularly toward reports
on consumer spending during
the Christmas season and new
figures in January on capital
equipment investment by indus-
try. Until these and other fresh
data are in and studied, no
final decision can be made,
they say.
Stuart Eizenstat, director of
policy development for the Car-
ter transition staff, noted "a
tax rebate probably has the
quickest impact" on the econo-
my. But he said if the decision
to prime the pump is made, "it
is more likely to be a combined
package."
Other things which might be
done, Eizenstat said, include
awarding federal funds to state
and local governments to boost
hiring in areas with high un-
employment, giving aid to the
housing industry to provide con-
struction jobs, encouraging pub-
lic works programs and other
"specifically - targeted employ-
ment programs."
ROBERT GINSBURG, an at-
torney - economist, noted that
any economic program to boost
the economy would be designed
"to influence calendar '77, try
to get better results quickly.
"Spending options are avail-
able," he said. But he noted
that "tax options quite clearly
can be put on stream more
quickly and in bigger number"
than other measures.
