Which year?

The following are a few quotations from an article in The Times of London. Guess which year it came from.

“Then there is the growing gap between rich and poor. Although there is a good deal of money in some pockets, inflation, thought to be running at more than 20 per cent, is making family budgeting an increasing struggle for most Jordanians……..The rise in rents makes life particularly difficult for young couples planning to marry……Like many Jordanians I spoke to, he blamed this on the influx of …….refugees and this represents a potential area of tension if rents and other prices continue to rise……..Amman has now spread itself over at least 13 hills, and the bulldozers and cement mixers are already at work on others.”

1976! T
