Part one: The Problems and Policies of Economic Development: An Appraisal of Recent Experience, examines the principal features of economic progress of developing countries during the period 1955 to 1965. As part of the preparatory work for a second United Nations Development Decade, this review seeks to draw pertinent lessons from the recent experience relating to problems and policies of economic development. Part two: Current Economic Developments, highlights the main features of the world economic situation. The Survey covers the growth of output in 1967 and early 1968, and examines several topics of current concern in the field of international monetary and trade policy, including, inter alia, the devaluation of the pound sterling, reform of the international monetary system, implications of the Kennedy round and trends in regional integration. It further discusses changes in the methods of planning and management in the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics and Eastern Europe.




This report, World Economic Survey, 1967, is the twentieth 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 on economic matters. It is also intended to stimulate interest in and discussion of international economic problems among a more general public audience.
