This Article proposes to examine the gradual changes that have occurred in the Regulations since their inception and to raise the question whether the original purpose of the Regulations has been forgotten. This writer suggests the possibility that the main purpose of the controls is no longer to remedy the balance of payments deficit, but to observe and regulate the large U.S. based multi-national corporations.
