A new age in East European economics dawns Tuesday, when the nations of the Soviet trading club pack away the mirrors they have used to balance their checkbooks for four decades. It will be every new democracy for itself in 1991, when the Council for Mutual Economic Assistance, or Comecon, starts keeping its books in real money, instead of the synthetic "transferable ruble" that has been its common, unconvertible currency for internal wheeling and dealing.

Romanian Communist leader Nicolae Ceausescu has promised more pork and poultry to mute increasing dissent in his food-short nation. He told a Communist Party meeting in Bucharest that next year, Romanians will eat an average of 154 pounds of meat, the state news agency Agerpres reported. In most Romanian cities, meat is rationed at one kilogram, or 2.2 pounds, per person a month. Consumers can sometimes get more pork or poultry from the private market.

The Senate on Friday rebuked Romania for its deteriorating human rights record by voting to strip that nation of its preferred trading status with the United States for six months. It also decided to bar the special status from any nation identified as supporting terrorism. The actions were among the first taken on a massive trade bill now before the chamber. Senators worked late Friday and planned a rare Saturday session.
