Indonesian efforts to establish a new political and economic order and the influence of the Indonesian student organizations KAMI and KAPPI on those efforts. KAMI and KAPPI acted as the catalyst that precipitated the Army's first measures against the old order. These members of the Generation of 1966 initiated direct action against Sukarno, demanded the banning of the Indonesian Communist Party, lower prices, and a new cabinet. The new regime has made considerable progress in adopting an excellent foreign investment law and in reestablishing relations with international monetary organizations. If the attitudes of the present regime and of the Generation of 1966 remain as lucid and purposeful as they seem to be at present, Indonesia should have a great future in the community of nations. 27 pp.
