U. Views On Proimoing
Americas Economic Develop6#ieiit.
The State Department this w Mek made public the-.text of
a statm6ent of. United States suggestions for promoting Wie
Economic Development of the An ri~as. ,Copies of'this state-
mient-were made available to the Delegations of the other
Govu)nment members of the Committee of '- on Febnary
The text of'the Statement follows:
The Delegatiori of the United States is pleased to set forth
herewith the views of its Government on the approach -it
believes could be employed most effectively in promoting
economic -development in the Arn(ricas.
Between the yoers 1950 and 1957 there was a 4.5% ave-.
rage annual rate of growth in the gross_ national product of
Latin America, a rate which substantially excauded the rate
of growth in the United States and most, if not all, other.
areas of the free world. There is good reason to expect that
this rate of growth can not only be maintained but accele-
rated, assuming a continuation of Inter-American coopera-
tion and the. pursuit of sound economic policies by all of the
If however, we -speak of increasing pEr capital, as distin-
guished from national, income, it is necessary to take into
account the rate of population growth in the area. Only a
half century ago all of Latin America had 61 million inha-
bitants. Today the figure stands at approximately 185 million.
Forty years from now, if the present rate continues, popu-
lation will treble again and, by the turn of the century, stand
at almost 600 million. The United States and -Canada, by com-
parison, will have, according to these estimates, only 312
million inhabitants at the turn of the century.
The United States has therefore on various occasions ex-
pressed its agreement with the thesis that the task of in,
creasing per capital income is,. in vidw of the projected rapid
increase in population, so formidable that it must be attac-
ked on all fronts by all of the American States. Not only
must account be taken of the privatd capital and. technical
know-how required to create employment for those who to-
day are under-employed or unemployed but also of the need
to create new jobs for an ever larger number df.workers. In
addition to the expansion of industry and agriculture, which
this implies, very large additional amounts of public funds
will be required for facilities which -only governments can
provide; for example, highways, sanitation facilities, hospi-
tals and schools.
In these circumstances it will be necessary substantially
and rapidly to increase production.
A dynamic rate of economic growth is possible within a
di Eocratic system of government which respects -te dignity
of man and attends to his essential needs, both material and
spiritual, provided there is a concerted effort on the part of
individuals to expand production supported by the conti-
nuous-administration of sound government policies. The ra-
pidity with which the national product can be increased de-
pends in large measure on the sacrifice which peoples anhd
governments elect to make.
It is against this general background that the Government
of the United States considers that all facets of the problem
of increasing living standards needs to be appraised. These
facets can be divided into various specific separate catego-

It would not be appropriate, for the United States-to pass
judgment on the feasibility of the adoption by other go-
vernments of policies.to encourage domestic savings and to
mobilize larger amounts of domestic capital for investment
and productive ekteprrise.
Insofar as the United States is concerned, there have exis-
ted for sortie time very h'avy taxes on -individuals and cor-
porations. Notwithstanding these tax burdens, .the United
States in recent months has,.withib the Spiit of Operatinh
Pan Anmrica, undertaken to increase in very substantial
amounts its ..public funds available for- ecoiomid develop-
ment assistance to Latin American countries. The magnitude
-of such amounts is indicated" by' the following specific actions-
of the Gov -nment of the United States:
a) Current negotiations for the formation of a inter-
American financial institution, the total capital of which
-should initially approxiniate $ 1 billion, a substantial
piolortiori tr be contributed by the United States;
b) A recent increase df $2 billion in the lending -authority

The Government of the United States shares the view that

i.`sp icific suggestions in this regard:
F:. First a draft-proposal has been submitted for certain eco-
iomic .sfudies to be undertaken by the Secretariat. of the
Finter-Ame.ican Economic and Social Council on a country-

.'-,d) Increased Trade as a Means of Promoting Economic
^;v'The. United States considers that increased trade, between
itin America and' the free world is indispensable to rapid
?:,t .nomic development. Although conscious that under the
crajtic. system -which we all cherish and. defend occa-
ional 'setbacks will be suffered, we have and will continue'
to cooperate, within the framework of the GATT, to remove
barriers to international trade, including especially barriers
to the sale of Latin American primary products.
Within this principle of increased international trade, the
United States also supports the efforts of Latin American
Governments to create, in cooperation with ECLA, one or ."
more regional markets designed to increase trade within the
area, to provide larger international markets, and to im-
prove efficiency of production through competition so that
more goods may be made available to the public at cheaper
