Keeping readers up to date on international commodities.
Abstract: This issue seeks to educate by bringing its readers up to date on international commodities such as bauxite, cocoa, coffee, sugar, tin and copper. It reflects Gatt-Fly's continuing effort to monitor the commodity markets with their many fluctuations and complexities. Presently, Gatt-Fly is exploring ways in which the sugar workers' interests can be highlighted and taken into account by a new International Sugar Agreement. The Notes cite Bolivia as the strongest advocate in the International Tin Council of a better deal for producing countries. At the same time, the notes pose the question of reforms which go no further than the just distribution of wealth among nations when individual countries, for example, the Brazilian military government, deny the rights of their tin miners to strike for better wages.
