We review constraints on the minimal supersymmetric extension of the standard model (MSSM) coming from direct searches at accelerators such as LEP, indirect measurements such as b → sγ decay and the anomalous magnetic moment of the muon. The recently corrected sign of pole light-by-light scattering contributions to the latter is taken into account. We combine these constraints with those due to the cosmological density of stable supersymmetric relic particles. The possible indications on the supersymmetric mass scale provided by fine tuning arguments are reviewed critically. We discuss briefly the prospects for future accelerator searches for supersymmetry.
