Colonialism, Decolonisation and Growth Rates: Theory and Empirical Evidence
This paper examines the economic impact of imperialism on growth rates and economic structures in lagging countries over the 'long nineteenth century.' Defining imperialism as the use of coercion by capital, labor, and governments in advanced countries to pursue their interests in lagging countries, it is shown that the nature of this impact depends on the degree of imperialist control exercised over lagging countries: whether they are colonies, quasi-colonies, dependencies, or sovereign countries. Some hypotheses resulting from this analysis are also subjected to empirical testing. Copyright 1994 by Oxford University Press.
