Abstract or Summary
  • The formation of capitalistic market-relations in the Third World (known also as the underdeveloped world) has been an ongoing process for hundreds of years. The degree of such capitalistic formation has been mainly a function of the quantitative and qualitative nature of the contact between the industrialized metropolitan centers (basically in the Western hemisphere) and the rest of the underdeveloped world. The contact between the Third World and the West that has prepared the ground for the evolution of capitalistic market-relations, has been mainly colonial and/or neocolonial in character. These are complexes of socio-economic relations that have developed into a worldwide movement. One of the most important characteristics of capitalistic expansion is its tendency to transform the existing socio-economic reality it encounters such that the newly formed one would be a complement to the larger capitalistic whole and an organic part of it. What is also interesting about such transformations is that they do not occur uniformly in a systematic fashion as a result of the colonial contact. They rather vary from one place to another depending upon the specific conditions of the area and also upon the historical setting of the colonial-neocolonial movement itself. To study the structural transformations that are taking place as a result of the colonial-neocolonial impact, specifically those transformations related to the formation of market-relations one has to have a perspective that is at the same time economical, historical, and anthropological. It should encompass the nature and origin of colonialism-neocolonialism, their dynamism and their socio-economic and political manifestations. These aspects should be dialectically related to the colonial situation, showing not only the impact but also the indigenous structural tendencies for adaptation to and adoption of capitalistic market-relations, the degree of tolerance and rejection of the new relations and how these new relations are fitted into the old structure.
