Abstract

The "New Economic Order" (NEO) proposals of the Third World and the United Nations are characterized in this paper. They are revolutionary doctrines, which are inconsistent with existing market concepts of international economic trade, investment and relations. The International Bauxite Association (IBA) cartel has been formed based on NEO concepts to emulate the OPEC cartel. IBA is unlikely to be as successful as OPEC over a significant period. Relative to bauxite needs, there are too many alternative sources and supplies of bauxite, and also of alternative aluminous ores, for the cartel to control supply and price.
