Banker Calls for D eficit Reduction
"1" HE United States is courting a
I possibly disastrous renewed o f
high inflation unless the leadership
in W ashington improves the nation’s
balance sheet by providing for the
long-term reduction o f the “ intoler­
able
deficit
burden,” Donald
C. Miller, vice
chairman o f Con­
tinental Illinois
Corp. and Con­
tinental Bank,
said in Chicago
last week.
S peaking at
the annual credit
congress sponD.C. M ILLER
sored by the National Association of
Credit Management, Mr. M iller said
a policy solution o f the federal bud­
get controversy would set in place
the m ajor prerequisite for a sus­
tained period o f noninflationary eco­
nom ic growth and more stable credit
markets.
“ The financial markets have not
yet conquered their fear o f higher in­
terest rates — a fear that unfortu­
nately is aggravated by fiscal and
monetary policy trends that seem to
be taking shape in W ashington,”
Mr. Miller said. “ The administra­
tion and Congress have not reached
an accommodation to reduce the bud­
get deficit. In the past few months
the Federal Reserve has had in­
creasing difficulty in controlling the

money supply.”
He said the big worry in the credit
markets this year and next centers
on the Treasury’s m assive borrow­
ings to finance the budget deficit.
“ It is still too early to get a precise
estim ate o f what the total amount of
borrowing will be in this fiscal year,
not to mention future years, but we
are looking at an amount in excess
o f $200 billion in the current calen­
dar year. The Treasury will have a
constant presence in the debt mar­
kets in amounts far beyond what we
have considered norm al.”
Mr. Miller said that unless the ad­
ministration and Congress get a rea­
sonable grip on the budget, he could
see at least tw o possible outcom es
that would be disastrous.
“ The first is that the financing re­
quirements o f the Treasury will con­
tinue to shoulder out those o f the
private sector by forcing real in­
terest rates to remain extrem ely
high. In this case, interest rates
would not decline significantly from
their present levels. M y best guess
is that this, in fact, is what will hap­
pen. If it does, the meaning is clear:
econom ic growth over the next few
years will remain slow, and unem­
ploym ent will remain high.”
Another possibility is that Con­
gress would force the relaxation of
monetary policy and increase the
supply o f credit enough to bring
about a drop in interest rates, he

May 23,1983
said. “ This course, in the context of
huge budget deficits, would lead
tragically to a resumption o f acceler­
ating inflation, possibly to heights
above those we experienced in the
past few years,” he warned.
“ W e cannot afford — literally can­
not afford — to fall into the trap of
reinflating the econom y,” Mr. Miller
cautioned. “ If we had to go through
another inflationary boom -bust cy­
cle, you would look with weary eyes
on the past few years as a time of
relative ease and tranquility.
“ The fact that these two scenar­
ios are, at this point, only possibil­
ities leaves us with reason for hope.
A t the same time, it is imperative
that Congress and the administra­
tion take aggressive action to re­
solve the budget differences mean­
ingfully to reduce the federal gov­
ernment’s tremendous demands on
the financial markets. ’ ’

House Votes Repeal,

A s predicted here last week, The
House o f Representatives voted to
repeal the bill enacting a 10% with­

voted to delay the previously passed

CSBS: Geographic Limits Needed

HE dynamic American banking
system has as one of its main
foundations the dual banking sys­
tem. That system has been estab­
lished and reaffirmed by a series of
Congressional decisions over the
years which constrain geographic
expansion and, as a consequence,
foster a m ultiplicity o f locally owned
and controlled banks.
These are the m ajor conclusions
o f a massive policy study ju st re­
leased by the Conference of State
Bank Supervisors, entitled “ The

Systems, Ine.

consistently reaffirmed its belief
that decentralized control of struc­
ture provides the primary safeguard
against undue concentration o f fi­
nancial resources and regulatory au­
thority of those resources.”
M oreover, the study maintains,
“ the elimination o f geographic re­
straints would not result in more
com petitive local structures and
would increase the concentration of
banking resources.”
The study asserts, proponents of
relaxation o f geographic restraints,
even as they argue that their objec­
tive is better service and com pet­
itive positioning, actually seek “ in­
terstate ownership and control.”
This is the true focus of the debate
over M cFadden and Douglas, the
Conference says, and it adds:
“ Congress must broaden the de­
bate over interstate ownership and
control from the narrow—real as
they may be—concerns advanced by
proponents o f change to the more
fundamental issue: the concentra­
tion o f financial resources. The con­
sequences of m ajor concentrations
of ownership and control o f banking
resources must be considered with
great care.”
