From the cover: “In this book two of the world’s leading experts on oil analyse the contemporary conflict in the western economy, highlight the dangers of allowing it to continue and offer a radical solution. They recommend that the wealth created by OPEC oil and that of the OECD nations should be used in part to finance a joint OPEC/OECD Agency for Cooperation and Development. This agency would finance the balance of trade deficits of the poor, oil importing countries-in an enterprise such as the Marshall Plan with no requirement for repayment; it would finance the countless opportunities which exist in the Third World for the exploitation of energy resources, particularly oil and gas, the potential for which in such regions remains virtually unexplored and untouched.”
