Abstract:

All but one of the nineteen essays in these pages were previously published as op-ed articles--sometimes in a slightly abbreviated form--in The Wall Street Journal, The Los Angeles Times, The New York Times, The Washington Post, and Newsweek, during the three years between November 1981 and November 19084. The essays are grouped into two sections dealing, respectively, with economic policy Section I, and with foreign policy Section II. Sometimes this division is arbitrary for example, the discussion of international debt which is in Section I bears on foreign policy, and the discussion of Western lending to the Soviet Union which is in Section II bears on economic policy. The single essay that was not previously published Another Look Through the Pipeline deals with the Soviet Unions gas pipeline to Western Europe.
