Abstract : Recent events and trends in world affairs have focused attention upon the issue of inter-state economic conflict and possible national security implications in the decade ahead. In this context, the Office of Naval Research (ONR) took the initiative within the Department of Defense (DOD) to sponsor a workshop which would bring together key individuals from Government, the academic community, and the private research sector for purposes of exploring and discussing the national security implications of future economic conflict and the possible needs for research on this subject. This report presents not only a summary of the highlights and results of the workshop, but also a detailed record of the proceedings. The main body of the report consists of a concise, point-by-point presentation of the principal consensus, as well as divergent, views, opinions, and comments of the Workshop's participants with respect to economic conflict and national security research. The organization of the highlights of the proceedings of the Workshop reflects four major subject areas which may be briefly summarized as follows: concepts, Definitions, and Current Methods of Analysis; a Profile of Economic Trends in the U.S.S.R; Current U.S. Government Forecasting and Policy Formulation Capabilities; and suggested Areas for Research.
