Peace, Security and the 1980 Elections.
Woito, Robert, Ed.; And Others
This booklet offers a perspective on U.S. foreign policy for election year 1980. It can be used as a discussion starter at the secondary and college levels. Long range goals essential to a warless world are proposed. They are: mediating regional and national crises; gaining arms control and disarmament agreements; strengthening international institutions; building a sense of world community; and sustaining world economic development. Specific proposals designed to initiate progress toward reaching these goals are then presented and discussed. For example, to sustain world economic development, the United States should (1) reduce oil imports further; (2) establish a standardized accounting system for aid transfers, including governmental and nongovernmental aid; and (3) appropriate or ear mark 1/2 of the needed funds for a country's land reform program provided the land goes to those tilling it and productive units are formed.
