5 these structuralist views are themselves subjected to a critique. On the one hand I accept that the rigour and internal logic of these accounts is a vast improvement upon neo-Marxism. On the other hand I am not convinced that such theorising is the last word in radical development thinking. In my judgement there are problems with an account which depends so heavily upon Althusserian structuralism. In formal terms these problems are those of rationalism and structural causality. Less opaquely, we are faced with the old problem of determinism.

'The essential difference between these is the strength of the state machine in different areas' (Brewer, 1980, p. 165), and it is this which cranks the handle of Wallerstein's model of surplus transfer. Actors in the core (the capitalists) are able to call on their state machines to manipulate an economic system which is otherwise geared to the geographical equalisation of profits.
