Total spending has increased 9 per cent during the past
year, compared with an average growth rate of 6 per cent per year
from 1957 to 1967. The rise in spending in the past year consisted
of 5 per cent growth of real product and a 4 per cent advance of
prices. Payroll employment has increased about 3 .5 per cent since
a year ago and total civilian employment about 2 per cent.
Industrial production has declined recently, following
the contract settlement in the steel industry, but has increased 5 per
cent since about a year ago. Production of consumer goods remained
strong through the summer, while output of business equipment grew
at a more moderate rate.
Retail sales were up at a 15 per cent annual rate in
August from late 1967, and 10 per cent from a year ago. The 10 per
cent growth in sales was as great or greater than in 93 per cent of
all consecutive twelve - month periods since January 1949. Sales
of both durable and nondurable goods have increased at rapid rates
during the summer.
Consumer prices have risen at a 5 per cent annual rate
in the last six months, a rate as great or greater than in 94 per
cent of all successive six-month periods since 1949. By com ­
parison, consumer prices increased at a 1 .7 per cent average
annual rate from 195 7 to 1967.
