Sample text

For the nature of Department I goods in the world system, and in turn the lack of them, has consequences for the rules of domination both internally and externally. One would thus have expected Cardoso and Faletto to analyze these changes in relation to different periods in the social formations of Latin America . Instead they return to domination as being political, and concentrate on groups and classes and their factions in the pact of domination at the level of the state, linking this to changes in some characteristics of the system of production.

The theory of imperialism reinforced this point of view, which was moreover consistent, at least in part, with what happened up to that point. The anti-imperialist struggles were at the same time struggles for industrialization. The local states and national bourgeoisie seemed to be the potential historical agents for capitalist economic development, which in turn was looked upon as a "necessary stage" by a considerable part of critical opinion . The dependentistas showed that a kind of industrialization was occurring under the control of the multinationals, and they drew certain conclusions from it.

This is a valid point if they wish to emphasize that there is no simple unil inear theory applicable spatially and temporally, and that what are important are " concrete analyses of concrete situations " (Lenin) . But Cardoso and Faletto ar e being excessively evasive - the frequent criticisms made of their openendedness, a virtue, can justifiably be made of a certain evasiveness and even slipperiness in their writing - in maintaining that all they are doing is proposing a series of empirical analyses giving specificity and bringing up to date "the analysis of a general economic theory of capitalism".
