Economic and social questions

The failure of the economic recovery in the developed economies to spread to the developing countries was examined by several United Nations bodies during 1986. The continued overall net transfer of resources from developing to developed countries, largely related to the international debt crisis, was increasingly perceived as unsustainable, economically as well as politically. During discussions on the world economic situation and in major economic reports, the importance of the interrelationship between the issues of money, finance, resource flows, debt, trade, raw materials and development was stressed.
