In part one of World Economic Survey 1958, attention is focused on international commodity issues and policies in the post-war period. The Survey analyses trends and fluctuations in world trade of primary commodities, national and international commodity policies, and issues of primary commodities in the centrally planned economies. Part two of the Survey examines the recent events in the world economy, paying special attention to the recovery from recessionary trends, and provides an economic outlook for 1959.




This report, World Economic Survey, 1958, is the eleventh in a series of comprehensive reviews of world economic conditions published by the United Nations. It is issued in response to General Assembly resolution 118 (II), in which the Secretary-General was requested to prepare an annual review and analysis of world economic conditions and trends. The report is intended to meet the requirements of the Economic and Social Council and other organs of the United Nations for an appraisal of world economic conditions which may serve as a basis for recommendations in the economic field; it is also designed to meet the needs of the general public.
