The characteristics of nonexhaustible substitutes and resource requirements suggest important distinctions between energy forms of limited use and those more widely useful. We have used taxonomy based on these distinctions to examine possible implications for trade and investment flows of substitution toward nonexhaustible resource use, althourgh the conclusions depend heavily on assumptions about future nuclear fusion technology. The uncertainties, and the possible significant adjustments required, call for governments to become involved and to encourage cooperation so that adjustments are efficient, and inefficient pursuit of energy security by individual countries will be avoidedAssunto(s): COMBUSTIBLES FOSILES | FUENTE DE ENERGIA | RECURSOS RENOVABLES | DEMANDA
