This chapter follows the discussion of restructuring in the previous chapter to discuss the relationship between neo-liberalism and the political economy of imperialism. It does so by returning us to the question of free-trade imperialism, as discussed in Chapters 3 and 4, and the post-war radical accounts of dependency discussed in Chapter 5. The central argument of this chapter is that neo-liberalism is a form of free-trade imperialism that reinforces the division of the world into cores and peripheries of global capitalism.
