ABSTRACT
This article discusses an approach to global negotiations on a New International Economic Order between industrialized nations in the North and developing countries in the South. The breakdown came because there are still substantive and fundamental differences between the approaches of the North and the South to these negotiations. The South wishes to gain more economic power and participation in international decision-making, but the North will not surrender its present privileged position. The real experiment involved in the North-South dialogue is whether the pace of change can be accelerated through common consent, and whether the pains of transition can be eased through orderly negotiations. It is tempting, but totally wrong, to jump from pessimism about the prospects of the North-South dialogue to pessimism about the prospects for change itself. But the desire for liberation, participation and equity cannot be confined within national borders. It will affect all international relations. Another powerful stimulus is the rising real cost of energy. The comparative advantage of industrialized nations in energy-intensive agriculture and industrial production is fast disappearing.
