ABSTRACT
An essay is presented which critiques the concept of an international enriched uranium fuel bank. Proposed as a method for preventing the proliferation of nuclear weapons, the idea involves delivering uranium fuel for nuclear power plants to countries that agree to forgo the development of nuclear weapons. Arguments are presented that this will actually increase the rate of nuclear proliferation, rather than preventing it.
