Frederick Wills

by Carlos Wesley

The former Foreign Minister of Guyana describes how terms of trade imposed on developing sector nations force them to expand their “black economies”—dope exports—to get the foreign exchange necessary for imports and debt payments. This growing dope trade, he states, is threatening the population of the advanced sector, while the malnourished populations of the Third World, growing dope rather than food, turn to cults.
