A Marshall Plan for the 1990s
An International Roundtable on World Economic Development
This symposium of papers by statesmen and leading experts from around the world examines the global economic situation and concern about the potential for world unemployment and trade crisis in the 1990s. A new "Marshall Plan" would involve a concerted worldwide effort to improve the situation.
The frightening numbers; a plan to create new markets; both sides of the question; why today is different; first steps to increased trade; growth among the advanced nations; US legislation - what more is needed, can the US still lead?; Europe's dilemma; strengthening the US-Europe partnership; the economics of liberty - how more nations can join; Latin America - the clear basics; Africa - development under duress; China's "open door" policy; what the developing nations must contribute; the challenge to business leadership; agriculture trade - the hardest test; how east-west trade fits the picture; firmer foundations for lasting prosperity; this much is certain.
