Abstract

The vital importance of such issues as the problem of raw materials, energy, food supply, ecology and the World Ocean is characteristic of the development of the world economy and international relations in the 1970s. Different in scope, in form, in extent and the way they affect the economy and policy of a country, these problems have one thing in common — they are all connected with the use of natural resources, or viewed in a wider sense, with the relations between society and nature.
