Forgive Us Our Debtors

December 1982
National Review;12/24/1982, Vol. 34 Issue 25, p1594
The article focuses on the efforts to free the Third World countries from Western exploitation and the proposals to erase Third World debts. There is a need for the United Nations to create an international economic order. Some of the most delinquent debtors in the Third World are unaware of what is happening to them as they slip into default and penury. Cuba has called for wiping out all Third World debts, which should give pause to any bankers who see Soviet satellites as good loan risks.
