Abstract : The United States' Pacific and Asian allies present strategic barriers between the Communist World and the Western World. Their economic stability is immensely important to their ability to maintain a strong defense and be dependable allies. In terms of mineral wealth, each ally can be considered richly endowed in a few minerals, but poor in many others. This has greatly restricted their economic growth and industries, though very important for export earnings, represent only very small percentages of the nations' gross national products.
