In short, it’s about everything a great European style restaurant is all about. he ad St Cafe 310 East 6th St. Austin, Texas two months for inspection; each car is held up. That is their liberalized policy; their policy until a few months ago was that they would hold up seven months. We don’t hold them up two seconds. If we send electrical products into Japan, each one of those products is inspected individually. We don’t inspect them at all, anymore than we would inspect cars. We look at agricultural products. I raise cattle; I still have a ranch. The Japanese several years ago paid $18 a lb. for a steak, and the Japanese like steak, but they have a consumption of about 17 lbs. of beef per capita per year, compared with over a hundred here, because the country’s so small they can’t grow enough beef. But they have all these barriers to our products. . . . c`. . . we are using national tools on federal monetary policy, but it is having international implications that we haven’t addressed.” And I might add that some of our economic problems also relate to the fact that we have basically national tools to deal with international problems in terms of finance. For example, we say inflation has been too high. How will we control inflation? We will bring down the growth of the money supply. When you squeeze down the money supply, the supply reduces; interest rates won’t. The cost of money rises so interest rates get higher. The dollar gets, quotes, stronger because other people come to buy the dollar. When the dollar gets stronger, that makes it more difficult to sell our products to other countries. So we are using national tools on federal monetary policy, but it is having international implications that we haven’t really addressed. We may need something like a new Bretton Woods Conference, something to look at our whole international monetary structure. I’m not certainly bright enough to know the answer to all these things. I do recognize that problems exist, and I don’t think a lot of people even recognize that problems exist. I’m curious about your position on our Latin American policy. [The interview took place before the Grenada invasion.] Well, we have, of course, historically had a variety of problems with Latin America. One of the problems relates to colonialism from a long time past. When I have spoken on Mexico, I have pointed out to audiences that in the lifetime of people in most rooms I can tell from the people in the audience U.S. Marines landed in Mexico; Woodrow Wilson sent them in. We tend to forget that states some people would call Tejas, New Mexico, Colorado, Arizona, California were once a part of Mexico. I’m not saying that we should feel guilty about where we are, but we need to be aware of the historical backgrounds of these areas, and most Americans are not including a lot of diplomats. I think what we need to do in Central America of course, we need to be militarily strong; that’s a given but if someone walked in to the Texas Observer office and was wearing a couple of pistols, and pulled them out and twirled them around a bit and cocked them and pointed them at you and put them back in the holsters, chances are you’d be impressed, and you might think “You’re strong, you’re tough.” You probably wouldn’t build a lot of friendship. What Reagan has done by sending down flotillas of battleships is, he’s shown our guns, but he hasn’t shown them our friendship. There are a number of things that the USA can be doing and should be doing that we are very very remiss in. But we need to recognize that the solutions are all and most government solutions are this way long-term rather than short-term. First of all, we should be educating a lot of the leadershit in Latin America and other countries of the world. People in those countries want to come to the USA to study; if we had been doing that for the past 25 years, you’d have 45and 50-year-old people who had studied in the USA in Central American government. And what you find consistently is that people who come to the USA enjoy our liberties, love our country, and go away understanding us and liking us. Very few people come here and live in the USA and not like it and I know that because I lived overseas for five years. So we ought to be educating the leadership of other countries. Second, we ought to be working with these countries on some of their agricultural plans, assisting them to be able to feed themselves. We could certainly assist them with some basic medical care. I don’t see why we couldn’t do that, helping with the training. In terms of immediate needs, we ought to work through groups like the Contadora Group, and if we worked with the Contadora Group, we’d be using other people to help bring about a better understanding of democratic Ia. 1…”111.1001 STATIPAINT O OWNEMINIP, MANAGIIIPIT IS*/ *TS LLSA NO CIRCULATION MR TTss sto sAyeAsps lisa itaal Ctaarvar C. . 0 16 il. 1 0 14 15 11 p.n.’s or nua 9 ‘sq.. 30. 15715 ………,,… 211.0Ir1y entediot for a 01mo-weak Interval tetnau 1.1u a trice a yam 1. 1n Janne ry 0 July AMWAY, 25 MSS 020.00 lOOsnillt MIMS SINSWISS Or MN.
