Calling himself a dissenter from the view that "international economic interchange improves the world allocation of resources," Mr. Griffin of Oxford argues that in fact it exacerbates international inequality and perpetuates dependence for poor countries. Nine papers deal vigorously with different aspects of the dual topic set out in the title. The demonstrations bearing on poverty within developing countries are more persuasive than those which seem tantamount to saying that no real national development can take place.
