World Crisis, Class Struggle and 1984

World Crisis, Class Struggle and 1984 Andre Gunder Frank WE are in a crisis and unless the class struggle goes our way, we are heading straight for 1984, the real 1984, much closer and much more real than that of Orwell. We have a lot of evidence and manifestations that there is a crisis: Watergate, the mis-called energy crisis, the financial crisis, the change from bipolarity to multi- polarity in Kissinger's world, and so on. I suggest that these are only the manifestations and that what is at the bottom of the crisis is that we are again in a major crisis of accumulation, which capitalist development has always witnessed.

The Wealth and Poverty of Nations-Even Heretics Remain Bound by Traditional Thought

Even Heretics Remain Bound by Traditional Thought Andre Gunder Frank In contrast to the view expressed in the foregoing article, the author of this article regards the modernity-tradition dichotomy as a liberal obfuscation. Liberals fail to, or do not wish to, see the historical relationship between so-called modernism and traditionalism which, unlike what even self- styled liberal heretics such as Myrdal, Galbraith and Rostow might say, are not distinct characteristics peculiar to particular regions of the world but are the result of an international system, which exploits many for the benefit of the few. What is commonly called modernity is the result of the creation and maintenance of the so-called traditional characteristics of Asia, Africa and Latin America.
