International Economic Policies of a Nordic Group
EFTA is always thought of as a very heterogeneous organisation consisting of countries who have mainly one thing in common. They were not prepared in the middle of the 1950s to sign the Rome Treaty. Even this common attitude was explained by very different underlying factors. It is usual to point to wide differences among them in level of development, geographical situation, economic structure, size of economy and population, security policy, etc. Accordingly, it seems reasonable to assume that the basis for common EFTA policies will normally be weak or nonexistent. Also, it seems to follow that they could not easily be treated together in a discussion of commercial and economic policies, which is the object of this paper.
