But the Games have rarely been staged with more ambition to self-aggrandisement than in Beijingwhen China celebrated its arrival as a world power. The Olympics and the World Expo are symbols of the secular shift that occurred around the turn of the millennium: Countries once treated as colonial underdogs now measure up to their masters, and people of colour take over from the white man.
Yet what amounts to a triumph of justice threatens to turn into a defeat for the planet. For as the group of friends who eventually became contributors to The Development Dictionary gathered for what we called a living-room consultation in State College Pennsylvania, to review key concepts of the development discourse, on the other side of the Atlantic the events that brought down the Berlin Wall in November were coming PREFACE to a head.
Like most of our contemporaries, we were stunned by the event but blissfully ignorant of the way in which the fall of the Wall would turn out to be a historical watershed.
On the one hand, the age of globalization has brought economic development to fruition. The Cold War divisions faded away, corporations relocated freely across borders, and politicians as well as populations in many countries set their hopes on the model of a Western-style consumer economy.
In a rapid — even meteoric — advance, a number of newly industrializing countries acquired a larger share of economic activity. They notched up growth rates far higher than those of the old industrial countries, playing their cards as energy suppliers United Arab Emirates, Venezuela, Russiaas export platforms South Korea, Thailand, China or as sizeable markets Brazil, China, India.
In any event, quite a few Southern countries broke away from the group of money-poor economies and transformed into a new generation of industrial countries, narrowing the distance that separated them from the rich economies.
But, on the other hand, the age of globalization has now superseded the age of development. This is mainly because nation-states can no longer contain economic and cultural forces. The state was conventionally considered to be the main actor, and the national society the main target, of development planning.
With the state moving out of focus, the development concept looks strangely out of place in the era of globalization. Development, in short, became denationalized; indeed, globalization can be aptly understood as development without nation-states. As a result of this shift, development came to mean the formation of a global middle class alongside the spread of the transnational economic complex, rather than a national middle class alongside the integration of a national economy.
Seen from this perspective, it comes as no surprise that the age of globalization has produced a transnational class of winners. Roughly speaking, half of the transnational consumer class resides in the South, and half in the North.
They are part of a transnational economic complex which is now developing its markets on a global scale.
Westernstyle development, to be sure, continued spreading during the globalization period, but boosted the expansion of the transnational economic complex rather than the formation of thriving national societies. Though it goes without saying that the time-honoured vices of greed and arrogance are omnipresent drivers in this scramble, it is also true that from the point of view of the South there is more to it.
Behind the craving for skyscrapers and shopping malls, gigawatts and growth rates, there is also the desire for recognition and equity at work. A quick glance at China may illustrate the point.
And the success of the middle class is a source of pride and self-respect that puts the Chinese elite on a par with social elites elsewhere on the globe.The government has more authority in a command economy, while private citizens and companies have more influence in a market economy, according to Infoplease from Pearson Education.
