I agree with Julian that we ought to search for an *economic* dimension of 
imperialism. This is an urgent task. Anwar Shaikh has made very important 
contributions to the critique of neoclassical trade theory, and perhaps his 
analysis can contribute to the development of a theory of unequal exchange 
that avoids the critiques commonly raised against Emmanuel's work.

Unequal exchange and imperialism are topics that we must face. Politically 
they are immensely important.

I do not have an answer to these questions. But perhaps we can think together 
about this.

By the way, a friend reminded me yesterday that this is the 100th anniversary 
of the publication of Hobson's "Imperialism".
