Discussing the Economy

Gordon: The economic news doesn’t look good, does it?

Hobart: Not according to the newspaper yesterday. I saw a similar report last night on TV.

Gordon: I saw that, too. The analysis seemed to be quite realistic.

Hobart: I hope they’re wrong. We really need to get the rising price structure under control.

Gordon: Well, costs seem to be rising in so many categories that it appears to defeat any efforts at stabilization.

Hobart: That’s my feeling, too. Raw material now costs more. Labor is demanding higher wages and production costs continue to soar.

Gordon: There may be some relief this summer. I understand the price of some foodstuffs will decrease.
