Abstract:

This memorandum is concerned with the economic aspect of Soviet relations with the countries of the developing world. It examines both the evolution of Soviet assistance programs and trade relations during the course of the past two decades and their importance for overall Soviet policy toward the developing world. The memorandum concludes that two different stands in Soviet policy are developing--a policy of political and military support for progressive regimes as part of the competition for influence with the United States and a more pragmatic economic orientation focused on long-term benefits for the Soviet economy.
