OPEC: 1973-1982

Buckley Jr., Wm. F.
March 1983
National Review;3/4/1983, Vol. 35 Issue 4, p276
The article deals with events that concern U.S. politics and government as of February 1983. A suggestion to tax imported oil would be disadvantageous to the Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries, but beneficial to the U.S. public and domestic oil industry. The U.S. Senate Foreign Relations Committee rejects the appointment of Kenneth Adelman for the directorship of the U.S. Arms Control and Disarmament.
