Abstract

"A few years ago," wrote financial reporter Ann Crittenden in the New York Times of February 4, 1979, "an aggressive group of less developed countries began demanding a new economic order. What they wanted was some formal restructuring to give poorer nations a bigger slice of the pie. This implied that world leaders had some rational control over events. It is now apparent that the old order is indeed crumbling—but amid such disorientation that the world is confronted not with a new order but a new global disorder."
