Israel Asks U.S. to Raise Price Ceiling by Gil Sedan JERUSALEM (JTA) -- Israel is asking the U.S. to raise the ceiling on a variety of goods that Israel exports to that country to help reducethe widening gap in the balance of trade between them. The request was put to President Carter's special trade envoy, Reubin Askew today by Min- ister of Commerce and Industry Gideon Patt. The limitations apply mainly to jewelry. Israel exports $40 million worth of jewelry to the U.S. annually and Patt observed to reporters after his meeting with Askew that "this is a very small sum consider- ing the price of gold in the last few months." He said Israel is seeking to have the ceiling on these exports changed so that each category of jewelry would have its own limit. He said the American envoy promised a reply by April 1. "1 would say, from impressions only, that our request was favorably understood," Part said. Askew will visit Egypt on what was described as an exploratory mission to expand trade between the U.S. and that country. The visit was seen here as an expression of President Carter's interest in expanding trade between Israel, Egypt and the U.S. as a result of the Egyptian-Israeli peace treaty. However, Patt said today that nothing has been decided yet about possible Israeli- Egyptian-American joint ventures. He said he would be better able to judge the pros- pects after his visit to Egypt next week. Interest paid by check monthly, quarterly, or credited to your savings-accoudt. Minimum $i0,000.

Then we employ a very expensive accountant to establish a way to minimize the income tax we must pay to the U.S. Government. And then what remains is what we call success. What we do with that success money separates the average businessman from the sophisticate. Our investments must return more than the inflation rate. The infla- tion rate has been increasing year by year. In 1969 it was 6.7%; in 1972, 5.8%; 1974, 9.1%; 1978, 11.2% and last year, 13.2%. Infla- tion has eroded the purchasing power of the dollar to the point that it takes $230 to buy today, what could have been purchased in 1967 for $100. Do your investments stand up to this increase in inflation? If, in 1969, you invested $10,000 in bank CD's you would today have approxi- mately $18,000. If you chose stocks (unless you were very lucky), the stocks you purchased in 1969 are worth about $17,000 today. To just maintain purchasing power you needed $23,000--both CD's and stocks left you $5-6,000 short. So, your investments lost money! In 1969 you could have purchased high quality investment diamonds at wholesale prices for your $10,000. That investment in diamonds would today be worth, at wholesale, about $70,000. Not only did you protect the purchasing power of your dollar, but you had $45,000 extra dollars and you did this without risk and without special knowledge. You were simply progressive enough to see that inflation would continue to increase and you purchased the best inflation hedge. The prices of high quality diamonds increase with every increase in the rate of inflation. In May of 1975 you could have purchased a two carat diamond for $13,180 and sold it in March 1977 for $23,988---a return of 82% in 22 months. A one carat diamond purchased in January 1978 for $14,545 was worth, in December 1978, $21,818--a return of 64% in 12 months.
