This Article discusses the major economic and political conflicts that underlie the seabed dispute over the allocation of seabed manganese nodules. The author argues that none of the interests groups have presented a compelling legal position, and urges the conferees to distribute manganese nodules according to a rigorously defined impartial scheme. The author argues that such action will provide the impartial legal precedent urgently required to avoid more serious conflicts over the distribution of global wealth.
