Imperialism, Economic Dependence and Development A Brief Review of Aspects of Economic Thought and Theory

Imperialism, Economic Dependence and Development A Brief Review of Aspects of Economic Thought... Introduction It has been said that the word imperialism is no word for scholars. It is too valueladen and uncertain in its meaning, a meaning which has altered with the passage of time. Nevertheless, taking account of its current use, the definition given by Benjamin Cohen 1974, p. 16 seems to be relevant. He defines imperialism as any relationship of effective combination or control, political or economic, direct or indirect, of one nation over another. This definition covers old and new imperialism and neocolonialism or neoimperialism even though it can be charged that it is too wide to be helpful Mommsen, 1981 especially bearing in mind that the political or economic dependence of one state or set of states on another is relative Barratt Brown, 1974. Indeed, unequal economic and political relations between nation states appear to be normal or usual, some might even say inescapable, no matter what is the economic system of the day and it is debatable whether all international political and economic relationships involving some degree of oneway dependence should be described as involving imperialism. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Humanomics Emerald Publishing

Abstract

Introduction It has been said that the word imperialism is no word for scholars. It is too valueladen and uncertain in its meaning, a meaning which has altered with the passage of time. Nevertheless, taking account of its current use, the definition given by Benjamin Cohen 1974, p. 16 seems to be relevant. He defines imperialism as any relationship of effective combination or control, political or economic, direct or indirect, of one nation over another. This definition covers old and new imperialism and neocolonialism or neoimperialism even though it can be charged that it is too wide to be helpful Mommsen, 1981 especially bearing in mind that the political or economic dependence of one state or set of states on another is relative Barratt Brown, 1974. Indeed, unequal economic and political relations between nation states appear to be normal or usual, some might even say inescapable, no matter what is the economic system of the day and it is debatable whether all international political and economic relationships involving some degree of oneway dependence should be described as involving imperialism.
