Multinational Corporations and U.N. Politics: The Quest for Codes of Conduct
Multinational Corporations and U.N. Politics: The Quest for Codes of Conduct
By Werner J. Feld
Pergamon Press, 1980, 173 pp.

A respected expert in political economy directs his attention to the effort being made in the United Nations to draw up a code of conduct for multinational corporations. Since this endeavor is part of the continuing North-South debate on whether and how the entire world economy ought to be reordered, it is not surprising that the deliberations, which Feld describes in detail, have fallen short of agreement.
