A follow-up to OFR 19-88, this report estimates the overall impact of a U.S. embargo on South African platinum-group metal supplies. Although no reduction in automobile production would be expected to result from embargoing platinum, embargoing rhodium would result in reduced automobile production and substantial gnp and employment losses, assuming no change in the current emission control requirements of the clean air act.
