Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists;May1983, Vol. 39 Issue 5, p20
The article discusses the interdependence between countries in the North and the South and the role of the developed countries in the North toward developing countries in the South. In 1979, 43 percent of Japanese merchandise exports were sold in the nonoil exporting developing countries, 36% of the U. S. merchandise exports that year went to the same markets as did 32% of Australian merchandise exports. The global economic, political, and ecological situation is deteriorating in the world. However, for the most part Northern leaders and communicators refuse to look beyond domestic, economic, or eastern based security issues. The developing countries should be given some responsibility for the direction of the World Bank or the International Monetary Fund.
