Abstract:

This study investigates how structural inequalities in the modern world-economy relate to national economic and social development and how much variation exists by region and structural position. I use the network measure of Eigenvector centrality in bilateral trade in 1990 as a continuous measure of structural position to predict economic and social development separately in 2005. I use lagged independent variable ordinary least squares regression for cross-national analysis as well as for three regional and three centrality categories. I find that while structural position is strongly associated with development on a global level as well as for the regions of the Americas and Europe, Asia and the Middle East, and high and moderate centrality states, it is very weakly associated with development for Africa and low centrality states. These findings lend support for including specifically relational variables in development studies but suggest that more research is required to extend the applicability of political economy perspectives to the entirety of the modern world-system.
