Abstract:Focus is on some aspects of the rather circumscribed area of the legal infrastructure of the financial, economic and commercial relations between the former metropolitan powers and their colonies in Africa, in order to demonstrate the extent to which certain basic concepts in this area serve as the fundamental underpinnings of the old international order. The system which has been the object of much rhetoric at the United Nations and other political fora is supported by a formidable and highly sophisticated armoury of legal and commercial concepts which need a radical revision if the international economic order is to be effectively restructured to promote the development goals of developing countries. Considered is also the extent to which this imbalance; in the economic relations between the developed and developing countries is aggravated by poor negotiating techniques and other inadequacies of the developing countries.
