Corporate Imperialism: Conflict and Expropriation
By Norman Girvan
Sharpe, 1977, 241 pp.
Nationalization of raw materials is not enough if it leaves producing countries tied into the international economy, says this Jamaican economist after reviewing the history of bauxite in the Caribbean and copper in Chile. Along with "dependent industrialization" it leads to the "cooptation of economic nationalism." Only a socialist reorientation of life in developing countries will free them from corporate imperialism, he concludes.
