Third District, HERE IN THE we also began to see signs of expansion last year, not every sector or AREA IS GROWING YET, BUT I SENSE THAT OVERALL BUSINESS ACTIVITY IS ON THE UPSWING. Once a region heavily dependent on manufacturing, the oped A MUCH MORE DIVERSIFIED ECONOMIC BASE IN RECENT YEARS. Third District has devel IN THE EARLY 1 970S, MORE THAN ONE-THIRD OF THE JOBS IN THE THREE DISTRICT STATES WERE IN MANUFACTURING. BY THE LATE 198OS, THAT PROPORTION HAD DECLINED TO LESS THAN ONE-FIFTH. TODAY, THE PATTERN OF District employment in agriculture, construction, manufacturing and the services indus tries CLOSELY MATCHES THAT OF THE NATION. WITH DIVERSIFICATION, OUR DISTRICT ENJOYED SOLID GROWTH DURING THE EXPANSION OF THE 1980S. JOB GROWTH WAS RELATIVELY STRONG AND, BY THE END OF THE DECADE, UNEMPLOY MENT RATES FOR THE DISTRICT STATES FELL BELOW THE NATIONAL AVERAGE. 2 The Federal Reserve Bank of Philadelphia Unfortunately, neither the economic diversification nor kets OF THE late 1980s could shield us the strong labor mar from the recession and slow recovery that have PLAGUED THE NATION THUS FAR IN THE 1 990S. INDEED, THE THIRD DISTRICT HAS SUFFERED A MORE SERIOUS RECESSION AND SLOWER RECOVERY THAN SOME OTHER PARTS OF THE COUNTRY. BUT IN THE FALL OF LAST YEAR, WE BEGAN TO SEE SIGNS THAT THE DISTRICT IS ON THE ROAD TO SUSTAINED GROWTH. RETAIL SALES PICKED UP. CONSUMERS BEGAN SHOWING MORE CONFIDENCE, AND THE PACE OF THIRD DISTRICT EMPLOYMENT EDGED UP SLIGHTLY DURING THE FOURTH QUARTER, AND AS WE MOVED INTO 1993, OUR REGULAR SURVEYS INDICATED AN IMPROVEMENT IN THE OVERALL LEVEL OF ECONOMIC ACTIVITY. WE ALSO SEE CONTINUED IMPROVEMENT IN THE ENVIRONMENT FOR BANK LENDING. HAVE IMPROVED THEIR CAPITAL POSITIONS AND REDUCED THEIR NONPERFORMING LOANS. DEMAND FROM SMALL AND MEDIUM-SIZE BUSINESSES HAS PICKED UP SOMEWHAT. BANKS LOAN BANKERS APPEAR MORE ACTIVE IN SEEKING OUT LENDING OPPORTUNITIES. BANK REGULATORS ARE MORE SENSITIVE ABOUT REGULATORY IMPEDIMENTS TO LENDING. ALL IN ALL, THE STAGE APPEARS SET FOR AN INCREASE IN BANK LENDING DURING 1993. SINCE EARLY 1989, THE FEDERAL RESERVE HAS BEEN USING ITS TRADITIONAL MONETARY POLICY TOOLS TO HELP FOSTER ECONOMIC PERFORMANCE MORE IN KEEPING WITH OUR NATION'S POTENTIAL. THE FED CONTINUED TO EASE MONETARY POLICY IN 1992. INTEREST RATES FELL TO THEIR LOWEST LEVELS IN 30 YEARS. AS A RESULT, SHORT-TERM BY YEAR-END, STUBBORNLY HIGH LONG-TERM RATES BEGAN TO DECLINE AS WELL. INFLATIONARY PRESSURES HAVE EASED IN RECENT YEARS, AND THESE GAINS ARE CRUCIAL FOR SUSTAINABLE GROWTH AND PROSPERITY. LOWER INFLATION AND THE PROSPECT OF SMALLER FEDERAL BUDGET DEFICITS SHOULD HELP KEEP LONG-TERM INTEREST RATES LOW AND THUS RAISE THE PATH OF EMPLOYMENT AND ECONOMIC GROWTH IN 1 993 AND BEYOND. Edward G. Boehne President The Federal Reserve Bank of Philadelphia 3 Letter from the First Vice President hroughout the T Third District, banks and other companies are rigorously RESTRUCTURING THEIR ORGANIZATIONS TO RAISE PRODUCTIVITY AND IMPROVE THE QUALITY OF THEIR SERVICES. WE AT THE PHILADELPHIA FED ARE COMMITTED TO SUPPORTING THE CHANGES OF A NEW, MORE VIGILANT BUSINESS ENVIRONMENT AND TO HELPING BANKS IMPROVE THEIR SERVICES BY UPGRADING OUR OWN. During 1992, we made significant progress in many areas of our operations. We WORKED TO IMPROVE OUR SERVICES AND PRODUCTS TO FINANCIAL INSTITUTIONS IN THE DISTRICT. WE ALSO STEPPED UP OUR QUALITY PROGRAMS AND IMPROVED OUR CONTROL SYSTEMS ON A BANK WIDE BASIS. THE CHALLENGES WERE MANY, BUT OUR EFFORTS HAVE BEEN REWARDED. 4 The Federal Reserve Bank of Philadelphia Already our the largest single-site check processor in the Bank experienced a major increase in volume in Federal Reserve System, 1992. The total number of items PROCESSED WAS UP BY ALMOST 10 PERCENT OVER 1991. OUR FOCUS ON QUALITY AND CONTROL EFFORTS HELPED DISTINGUISH US IN OTHER AREAS OF THE BANK, TOO. OUR DATA SECURITY CONTROLS, FOR INSTANCE, PRESENTLY RANK AMONG THE BEST IN THE FEDERAL RESERVE SYSTEM. THE CHALLENGES TO OUR SUPERVISORY ACTIVITIES OVER THE PAST YEAR WERE INDEED NUMEROUS. OUR SUPERVISION AND REGULATION DEPARTMENT HAS UNDERGONE MANY CHANGES SINCE THE PASSAGE OF THE FDIC IMPROVEMENT ACT. WE ADDED STAFF AND REORGANIZED THE DEPARTMENT IN ORDER TO BETTER COORDINATE AND IMPROVE SUPERVISORY ACTIVITIES. All in all, we accomplished the goals we set for ourselves BECAUSE people at ALL LEVELS OF OUR OPERATIONS WERE ENCOURAGED TO GET INVOLVED. THE TEAM EFFORT OF OUR EMPLOYEES WAS THE KEY TO A SUCCESSFUL YEAR. IN THE SPIRIT OF A STRENGTHENED ENVIRONMENT, WE WILL CONTINUE IMPROVING The SERVICES WE PROVIDE YOU, JUST AS YOU CONTINUE improving services TO YOUR CUSTOMERS. WILLIAM H.

Crone, Assistant Vice President and Economist, discuss recently com piled Third District data. News and Views: The Third District Economy p ■ ■ IVEN ITS LOCATION, IT'S TEMPTING TO THINK OF THE THIRD FEDERAL RESERVE Vb District as a slice of the NORTHEAST RUST BELT. Eastern "megalopolis" or a section in the BUT THE DISTRICT SERVED BY THE FEDERAL RESERVE BANK OF PHILADELPHIA IS AN ECONOMICALLY DIVERSE ONE. PHILADELPHIA ITSELF IS THE FOURTH MOST POPULOUS METROPOLITAN AREA IN THE NATION-HOME TO SOME 5 MILLION PEOPLE. BUT NOT FAR FROM THE CITY-IN PARTS OF SOUTH JERSEY, SOUTHERN DELAWARE AND SOUTH-CENTRAL PENNSYLVANIA-FARMING IS STILL A MAJOR INDUSTRY. IN A SENSE, THE THIRD DISTRICT IS A MICROCOSM OF THE NATION. THERE'S A LITTLE BIT OF EVERYTHING HERE. THE PROPORTIONS OF OUR WORK FORCE ENGAGED IN AGRICULTURE, MANU FACTURING AND THE SERVICE INDUSTRIES CLOSELY MATCH THOSE OF THE COUNTRY AS A WHOLE. BUT THE DISTRICT HAS ITS SPECIALTIES AS WELL-SUCH AS HEALTH CARE. WE HAVE A LARGE NUMBER OF MEDICAL CENTERS AND A CONCENTRATION OF PHARMACEUTICAL RESEARCH AND PRODUCTION COMPANIES. National economic shifts HETEROGENEOUS AS OURS. OF THE 1980S. and trends have an irregular impact on a region as NEW JERSEY, FOR EXAMPLE, PROSPERED DURING THE LONG EXPANSION A BUILDING BOOM, COUPLED WITH A SURGING FINANCIAL SERVICES INDUSTRY AND CASINO GAMBLING IN ATLANTIC CITY, BROUGHT TREMENDOUS GROWTH TO THE STATE. BUT WHEN THE BUILDING STOPPED, THE STATE SLIPPED BADLY. Meanwhile in Pennsylvania, the expansion of the 1980s never really produced A BOOM AND THE ENSUING RECESSION NEVER PRODUCED A BUST. Pennsylvania was spared a recession. As is THIS IS NOT TO SAY typical of recessions, the most recent RECESSION HIT MANUFACTURING EMPLOYMENT HARD AND MANUFACTURING IS IMPORTANT IN PENNSYLVANIA.

AS INDIVIDUAL FIRMS FALTER, INDIVIDUAL COMMUNITIES FEEL THE IMPACT. Delaware, one of the smallest states in the nation, took its economic destiny INTO ITS OWN HANDS-AND HAS REAPED THE REWARDS. WITH THE PASSAGE OF ITS FINANCIAL CENTER Development Act in 1981, Delaware became the location of choice for credit-card and OTHER OPERATIONS FOR A NUMBER OF THE NATION'S LARGEST BANKS. OVER THE NEXT 10 YEARS, FINANCIAL-SECTOR EMPLOYMENT DOUBLED AND OVERALL JOB GROWTH IN THE STATE WAS ONE AND A HALF TIMES THE NATIONAL AVERAGE. Though employment declined the District states to regain On in Delaware during its pre-recession employment level. the whole, the most recent recession hit the REST OF THE NATION. the recession, it is the first of Third District harder than the AT THE RECESSION'S WORST, WHICH FOR THIS REGION CAME IN THE THIRD QUARTER OF 1992, DISTRICT EMPLOYMENT HAD DECLINED 4 PERCENT. MORE THAN THREE-QUAR TERS OF JOBS LOST WERE IN MANUFACTURING AND CONSTRUCTION, BUT AGAIN MIRRORING THE NATION, AN UNUSUALLY HIGH PERCENTAGE WERE IN THE SERVICE INDUSTRIES. AS 1992 DREW TO A CLOSE, WE WERE ONLY STARTING TO SEE THE FIRST SIGNS OF A GENUINE ECONOMIC RECOVERY. quarter. Retailers dents to our EMPLOYMENT EDGED UP IN THE DISTRICT DURING THE FOURTH reported healthy holiday sales, and a growing number of respon Business Outlook Survey reported stepped-up production. As THE RECESSION FADES AND THE RECOVERY GETS UNDER WAY, THE LONG-RUN TRENDS AT WORK IN OUR DISTRICT WILL REEMERGE. AGAIN THE TRENDS ARE NATIONAL, BUT THE SPECIAL CHARACTERISTICS OF THE DISTRICT SHAPE THEIR IMPACT HERE.

Mrs.DeLuz is deputy chairperson of the Philadelphia. Fed's Small Business/Agriculture Advisory Council. r I IV ANUFACTURED GOODS REPRESENT A STEADY SHARE OF THE NATION'S OUTPUT, BUT MANUFACTURING JOBS REPRESENT A DECLINING SHARE OF THE NATION'S EMPLOYMENT, AS PRODUCTIVITY IN THAT SECTOR CONTINUES TO RISE RAPIDLY. Our own District Index is no exception to that trend. Our Mid-Atlantic Manufacturing shows output growing at an annual rate of 1 1/4 percent during the 1980s, while MANUFACTURING EMPLOYMENT WITHIN THE DISTRICT FELL AT NEARLY A 1 PERCENT RATE. The demographics of our district accentuate the impact of two other national EMPLOYMENT TRENDS: THE DECLINE OF CONSTRUCTION AND THE RISE OF SERVICES. Across the country, the aging of the baby boomers is slowing the rate of house hold FORMATION. OVER TIME THIS IS DIMINISHING THE DEMAND FOR NEW HOMES. MEANWHILE, PEOPLE ARE LIVING LONGER AND THIS AGING POPULATION IS DEMANDING MORE HEALTH CARE SERVICES. HERE IN THE THIRD DISTRICT, GROWTH IN THE WORKING-AGE POPULATION LAGS THE REST OF THE NATION AND THE AVERAGE AGE OF THIRD DISTRICT RESIDENTS EXCEEDS THE NATIONAL AVERAGE. Perhaps nowhere are national trends having more of an impact than on the District's banking industry. Of course, the impact of the FDIC Improvement Act of 1991 HAS YET TO BE FELT COMPLETELY. THE LAW HAS ALREADY TIGHTENED REGULATORY STANDARDS AND FOSTERED MORE CAUTIOUS LENDING PRACTICES, BUT OTHER PROVISIONS CONCERNING BANK MANAGE MENT PRACTICES AND RESPONSIBILITIES HAVE YET TO BE IMPLEMENTED.

After a recent meeting in Bloomsburg, Pennsylvania, President Boehne visited local businessman Mike Kanterman, Executive Vice President, Magee Industrial Enterprises. Inc. The company manu factures carpeting for automobiles. D UT FOR OVER A DECADE, BANKING IN THE DISTRICT HAS BEEN EVOLVING IN RESPONSE TO CHANGING REGULATION, FINANCIAL INNOVATIONS AND TECHNOLOGI CAL advances. Delaware has established itself as a harbor for several of the largest INSTITUTIONS OPERATING ON A NATIONAL SCALE. MEANWHILE IN NEW JERSEY, THE LARGER INSTITU TIONS ARE CAPTURING A GREATER SHARE OF THE BANKING BUSINESS THROUGH CONSOLIDATION. Pennsylvania, holding companies IN had been combining community banks into networks to TAKE ADVANTAGE OF SCALE ECONOMIES. NOW CONSOLIDATION SEEMS TO BE COMING TO Pennsylvania banking as well. Throughout the year, we heard the frustrations of people dealing with a LINGERING RECESSION-AND RECESSION PSYCHOLOGY. THE HARDWARE STORE OWNER WHO COM PLAINS HIS CUSTOMERS “WILL DRIVE FIVE MILES TO SAVE 25 CENTS.” “Every one of my customers says the same thing: ‘It's bad out OR THE BANKER WHO SAYS, there, but I've been lucky’.” a But they express even greater concerns about THE LONG-RUN ISSUES: the respon siveness OF GOVERNMENT; THE QUALITY OF OUR LABOR FORCE; AND THE CHALLENGE OF AN INCREASINGLY INTERNATIONAL ECONOMY. Whatever the challenges, third district businesses respond with practicality AND PURPOSE. ASKED HOW HE SURVIVES DIFFICULT TIMES, ONE FARMER SAID SIMPLY, “WE DIVERSI FY OUR PRODUCTS AND WE MAINTAIN OUR QUALITY.” A DISTRICT BUSINESSWOMAN PUT HER MISSION THIS WAY: “WE SERVE OUR CUSTOMERS AND WE SERVE OUR COMMUNITY.” The Federal Reserve Bank of Philadelphia 15 eputy Chairperson of the Board Jane G.
