For a better understanding of the underdevelopment problem take some time with the book: Trade, Development and Foreign Debt: How trade and development concentrate economic power in the hands of dominant nations, by Michael Hudson, 440 pages, ISLET, 2009. Following is a quotation from the 1992 edition of this book, page 457:
"From the British mercantilists through the early free traders and subsequent protectionists, probably the single most important policy inspiration has been the desire to understand the world's polarisation tendencies. The objective has been either to put them in place to consolidate one's lead, or to help less industrialised nations catch up. On the one hand this objective has involved an analysis of how lead-nations might achieve widening productivity and cost advantages for their industry and agriculture. The other side of the coin has been a review of how the colonial and postcolonial periphery has become malformed by what I [Michael Hudson] call `the Monoculture Syndrome' with its economically and politically obsolete labour, agriculture, capital and oligarchic governments."
After reading Hudson's book you will certainly have an understanding of the world's polarisation tendencies, which you will not get from Development and Underdevelopment.
