Abstract: The purpose of this paper is to engage the relationship between
development/underdevelopment and dependency, and the way in which they manifest
themselves today. Further, the goal is to show the continuity between historical
conceptualizations of development and dependency and the way they are employed
contemporarily. Neoliberalism and globalization are used to illustrate how the historical
relationship between the Global North and the Global South, or the Core and the
Periphery, still persists today, albeit in a different form, and are engaged in a perpetual
antibiosis to the detriment of Third World nations. Structural Adjustment Programs and
internal colonies as a result of the dismantling of the welfare state are used to draw
parallels between the effects of Neoliberal policies on the international and national
levels. This paper is predicated on the assumption that the axial divide is not only
international, between the North and the South, but also national between minority
communities and the larger society. Typically, the divide follows racial lines, as people of
color, both nationally and internationally constitute the Periphery, and whites constitute
the Core.
