Two studies on international economic relations

In the 1970s profound changes have taken place in world trade, with sharp fluctuations and a widespread upward trend in prices. The three years from 1973 to 1975 were the period of greatest dynamism, with the value of world exports rising at the extremely high rates of 60% in 1973 and 47% in 1974, but then growing by only 3% in 1975. In the following two years there was a return to relative normality, but trade did not resume the pattern it had at the beginning of the period.
