A Review of the Legal Status of the Secondary Boycott in the United States

Description: The secondary boycott issue has been present in the history of the American labor movement throughout the twentieth century. It has, consequently, been subjected to many of the same changes in policy by Congress, interpretation by the courts, and attitude of the public as have strikes and picketing. Secondary boycotts, however, have been handicapped much more than the other instruments of union power in as much as they have usually been treated as though they were less legitimate. This thesis will discuss the secondary boycott, and it legal status in the United States.

The United Nations Conference on Trade and Development and the International Trade Program

Description: This thesis is a study of the results of the United Nations Conference on Trade and Development. The study of the results of this Conference is important because this was the first time an international gathering of so large a number of countries was held specifically to discuss trade and development problems. One hundred and nineteen nations met in Geneva in a spirit of cooperation and with the expressed willingness to permit international interests to prevail over national interests. The papers presented at this Third Committee will be examined as a device to show the relation of international finance, private development finance companies, tourism, ocean shipping, and external debt to the problem of development. Also, the creation of an International Trade Organization will be discussed as a possible beginning to the solution of the development-trade problem.
