NtDepCapDevelEricksonPeppe1976 [This file contains notes, i.e., questions, from the Peppe & Erickson dependency article in LAP, 1976. Last edited, 11-12-08.] What is dependent capitalist development? Why does Cardoso (our source for the concepts used here) distinguish it from the capitalist industrial development that took place in the early industrializing countries ? Focus on the locus of decision-making regarding product structure, and regarding the market to be served . Show that the original industrial countries industrialized to produce principally for their national markets , while the economies of the dependent countries have, since at least the 19 th century produced to serve the needs of the already industrialized, powerful capitalist economies . (Indeed, the Steins showed that this was the case from the beginning of Iberian colonial domination in the Americas.) 1. What is the impact of dependent capitalist development on social structure ? a. Compare the logic of modernization theory with the reality in Latin America.

What is the impact of dependent capitalist development on income distribution ? a. Note the different impact in different stages of dependency, i.e., under structural dependency , compared with national dependency . b. Note how product structure changes as structural dependency replaces national dependency. c. Note how the expanding jobs and rising incomes under national dependency support the populist alliance between industrial elites and the working class. [I made the point in the Brazil chapter in Wiarda and Kline (1985) that, under ISI, workers' and industrialists' interests were compatible, but not afterward. Sinek made this observation in comparing ISI with the neoliberal globalization.] 3. What is the impact of dependent capitalist development on political behavior ? a. Remember the mod theorists’ expectation , based on the experience of the earlier-industrializing countries, that economic development, especially industrial development, would bring broader political participation and, ultimately, democratic political systems . b.
