Political and economic writers from the G-7 industrial nations offered their opinions about the upcoming summit meeting. They described GATT, the General Agreement on Tariffs and Trade, which serves as a multilateral negotiation between most non-communist countries to further free trade. The Uruguay Round, the latest round of tariff-reducing talks, was also discussed. Mr. Brueggmann explained how he felt that the media circus surrounding the economic summits of recent years had a negative effect on the results of the summit. When asked what was wrong with the United States, Mr. Kawachi replied that shortsightedness of Americans toward the Japanese was a major problem. Mr. Elliott, when asked the same question, responded by citing America’s internal problems, including the collapsing savings rate and the budget deficit. close
