MONTH ENDING: October 31, 1969

RESERVE

BANK OF ST. LOUIS

RELEASED: November 19, 1969

Total spending rose at a rapid 8 per cent annual rate
from the second to the third quarter of the year (pages 8 and 9),
but significant signs of slowing in certain areas of the economy
have developed in recent months. Final sales, that is, spending
other than for inventory accumulation, rose at a 6.3 per cent rate
from the second to the third quarter (pages 10 and 11), after
increasing 8.1 per cent in the previous year. Real product rose
at a 2.2 per cent rate (pages 8 and 9), compared with a 3 per cent
increase in the previous year. Industrial production, employment,
and personal income also have slowed considerably.
The growth of personal income slowed from an 8.8 per cent
annual rate for the first eight months of the year (pages 6 and 7),
to a 4.5 per cent rate in the August to October period. Retail
sales have been about unchanged since last spring (pages 6 and 7),
compared to a 4.9 per cent rate in the 1957-68 period. Corporate
profits after taxes declined at a 13 per cent rate in the third
quarter, after rising at a 0.8 per cent rate in the first half of
the year.
Payroll employment, which rose at a 3.6 per cent rate in
the first eight months of the year (pages 2 and 3), increased at a
reduced 1.5 per cent rate from August to October. Unemployment
rose to an average of 3.8 per cent of the labor force in the most
recent three-month period from an average of 3.3 per cent in the
first three months of the year. Industrial production has declined
for three consecutive months (pages 4 and 5), following a 5.2 per
cent rise in the previous year.
Prices, which usually respond slowly to stabilization
actions, have continued their upward trend. Wholesale prices of
industrial commodities increased at a 5.1 per cent rate in the
most recent three months (pages 13 and 14), up from a 3.4 per cent
rate in the December to July period and a 0.9 per cent trend rate
from 1957 to 1968. Consumer prices rose at about a 6 per cent
rate in the first nine months of 1969 (pages 12 and 13), compared
to a 2 per cent trend rate from 1957 to 1968.
