ABSTRACT
This article presents information on the economic relations between Poland and the U.S. The political decision of the U.S. Administration was not to declare Poland in default. This move by U.S. President Ronald Reagan has merely postponed, the day of reckoning. The Soviets have ruthlessly exploited the economies of their vassal states to shore up the faltering Soviet economy, forcing them to buy Western goods on easy credit, and leaving them with the debt while the Soviets walk away with the goods. The bankruptcy is real and immediate, of Poland, of Comecon, of detente and a little further down the line, of the Soviet system.
