Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
... this essay ... the international political economy of the 1950's and 1960's offered a better environment for economic development by low and middle income nations than the international political economy of the 1990's and 2000's. So it clearly can be better for middle and low income nations than it is today, so the conditions offered by the American Empire since it passed middle age and headed toward being old enough for Social Security can be bested: the current international political economy is clearly not the best of all possible worlds for middle and low income nations.

I've been accused of being a Marxist, yet while Harpo's my favourite, it's Groucho I'm always quoting. Odd, that.
