3/31/08 Why can’t the third world feed itself? - Deficiency in natural resources? (No) - Problems with cultural/social fabric? (Common misconception) - Process by which they become dependent on colonizers o They used to be able to feed themselves, until colonization Dependency Theory - Older theory; utilitarian model - In order for Europe (US, etc) to be advanced/developed, it has to under-develop other parts of the world o Linked Phenomenon - Lakota: unemployment figures aren’t because that are unassimilated (no college), it’s because they have assimilated, and there is no place for them - For Europe to exist the way it does, it needs to have Africa exist the way it does o The exploiters of the world then turn around and trash that world for being exploited That is the notion of colonialism as a linked phenomenon For us to have electronics, etc requires steady, cheap labor - Colonialism doesn’t stop at the borders: internal colonialism, even in cities o Sweatshops in LA, Hispanic/Asian labor (“It happens here too”)
