Abstract:

The report discusses the question of whether or not multinational corporations MNC have the potential for helping solve the US balance of payments problem. Of particulr interest is the NATO imposed foreign exchange deficit. The paper examines the balance of payments problem from 1950-on, and shows how the NATO deficit relates to the overall problem. It examines the NATO costs and foreign exchange expenditures.
