The old logics of the new international economic order

The institutional environment of international economic co-operation is based on harmony between national and international interests. Conflicts between those interests can be expected to arise, however, in a period of major industrial transition marked by changes in international competition and in production technology, such as that of recent years. The factor of power, so often neglected in the discussions of international economic co-operation, comes up distinctively when a country tries to change the international rules to maintain its competitive position as an industrial power. This article analyses in particular the relations between Brazil and the United States in this respect.
