Abstract. With the solitary exception of Rosa Luxemburg, classical Marxian analyses of imperialism identified the export of capital as the fundamental mechanism by which metropolitan capitalism exploits the periphery (see Chapters 5–6, and 13 of volume I of this book).   Referring to Wallerstein's seminal and rightly applauded work, but also very much in the tradition of concrete history. The work on imperialism that to my mind comes closest to presenting a general theory is, of course, Arghiri Emmanuel, Unequal Exchange: A Study of the Imperialism of Trade (Monthly Review Press, New York and London, ), p. where he states "the forecasts .

In this provocative new study, Zak Cope makes the case that capitalism is empirically inseparable from imperialism, historically and today. Using a rigourous political economic framework, he lays bare the vast ongoing transfer of wealth from the poorest to the richest countries through the mechanisms of monopoly rent, unequal exchange and colonial tribute. The result is a polarised.

The theory of ecologically unequal exchange posits that core or northern consumption and capital accumulation is based on peripheral or southern environmental degradation and extraction. In other words, structures of social and environmental inequality between the Global North and Global South are founded in the extraction of materials from, as.

(Greek: Αργύρης Εμμανουήλ) was a Greek-French Marxian economist who became known in the s and s for his theory of 'unequal exchange'. The theory was an attempt to explain the falling trend in the terms of trade for underdeveloped countries, while criticising the different approaches of Raúl Prebisch, Hans Singer, and /5.
