The Search for a New Economic Order. A Ford Foundation Report.
Ford Foundation, New York, NY.
This report describes the main areas of economic research supported by the Ford Foundation in the 1970s, with an emphasis on the work in international economics. It is divided into five sections: the international economy, less-developed countries (LDCs) and the new economic order, the industrialized world and inflation, workers and wages, and research institutions. The new international monetary system, the growth of world trade, and the effects of increased oil prices are areas of funded research discussed in section 1. North-South economic relations, the debt problems of oil-importing developing countries, and the implications for the developed world of the growing industrialization of the less-developed regions are examples of funded research areas specified in section 2. In section 3, the economic problem of inflation is dealt with, including discussion of tax-based income policies (TIP) and a review of the funding by the Ford Foundation in this area. Funding for studies of women at work, minority youth unemployment, and unemployment in LDCs are delineated in section 4. The last section describes the Brookings Institution, the National Bureau of Economic Research, and other nongovernmental centers of economic research funded by the Ford Foundation. A list of Ford Foundation grants for economic research is included. (NE)
