[Britain needed India to export capital to help it ease its balance of payment deficits with Europe and North America. Quotes Tomlinson, "...India formed the vital third leg in a triangular pattern of settlements between Britain and the rest of the world, financing over two-fifths of Britain"s balance ofpayments deficit..." Quotes Bagchi, "...the systematic manner in which Britain was investing capital in the white colonies by generating export surplus out of the nonwhite colonies..." The shift from a dual silver/gold-based currency system to a purely gold-based one, inherently disadvantaged the silver-based countries (India and China). Suggests that the crisis (the "Great Depression") created economic policies within colonial India that favored the Hindu commercial elite over the Muslim landowning-elite.]

Auty, R.N. 1997.  "Pollution Patterns During the Industrial Transition,"  The Geographical Journal, v163n2 (1997): 206-215.

[In the transition from a traditional to a developed economy, pollution first intensified and then eased. The total volume of emissions traced an S-shaped curve. As the industrial structure diversified from agro-processing into capital- and skill-intensive intermediates, and finally into research-intensive products, emissions shift from water-borne organic pollutants:to urban-centred airborne pollution and solid waste, followed by high growth of hazardous materials. South East Asian countries support this pattern, but differences between countries in natural resource endowment, industry and environment policies, and institutional capacity will continue to modify the pollution intensity curve as economic development proceeds.]

Batterbury, Simon & Timothy Forsyth & Koy Thomson. 1997.  "Environmental Transformations in Developing Countries: Hybrid Research and Democratic Policy,"  Geographical Journal, v163 (Part 2) (Jul 1997): 126-132.

[Introduces a special edition on the theme of åenvironmental transformations in developing countries¼. Many recent studies of political ecology or constructivist approaches to environment either overlook biophysical aspects of environmental change, or uncritically accept åorthodox¼ explanations of physical degradation without appreciating the social and political construction of such models. This paper, and those following, attempt to outline ways in which environmental research may remain sensitive to political and cultural debates, yet also give insights to practical environmental management of biophysical resources åexternally real¼ to human experience. It is argued that understanding human impacts on environment may only be achieved through long-term environmental histories compiled using locally-based åhybrid¼ social and physical research methods; plus an awareness of the social and political construction of environmental åorthodoxies¼ by powerful domestic and global agendas. As such, åtransformations¼ may be viewed as both physical changes in factors such as land cover or health hazards; but also as the socio-economic transitions in the driving forces of environmental degradation and perceptions of risk which in turn fuel new orthodoxies in research and policy.]

[The call for action on the danger of global warming is an unjustifiable diversion of attention from the far more serious environmental problems facing developing countries. The likely economic damage done by climate change would be negligible compared to the results of inadequate access to safe drinking water and sanitation, or of urban air pollution. These should be given priority over the interests of future generations.]

Examines the structure and purpose of the World Bank and International Monetary Fund, and how they have contributed to the debt burden and economic devastation in the South. Offers case studies from various third world countries, ranging from the vast foreign debt in Brazil and agricultural structural adjustment in Costa Rica to postapartheid neoliberalism in South Africa. Also examines worldwide environmental concerns and gender and ethnic inequalities, and argues that there is an urgent need to redefine „economic development¾ in order to find solutions to crushing and dehumanizing poverty caused by current economic policies around the globe.]

Aggregate, national-level scores for a variety of measures of public concern for environmental quality were created and correlated with per capita gross national product.

At the same time, the very fact of adopting national identity and defining the polity as a nation determines certain fundamental qualities and thereby ensures profound similarity between societies thus defined: nationalism makes a society modern. To claim that one nation--say, an economically successful, liberal democratic one--is more modern than another (economically unsuccessful and a dictatorship) is as little justified as to insist that a university professor, for instance, is more human than an illiterate farmer or a new-born infant. Modernity is a qualitative, not a quanititative concept. Nice intro to history of the idea of development in first three pages. Rest seems tedious.]

This essay takes the tensions between and within the racial appropriations of country and city in apartheid¼s perverse modernity as the point of departure for a critical revaluation of the affinities and differences among African, Afrikaans, and white English drama and performance in South Africa.]

Argues that, just as alarmism builds on the recognition of a real problem and then magnifies it, complacency may also start off from a reasonable belief about the history of population problems and fail to see how they may have changed by now. The current anxiety in the West about the „world population problem¾ is founded on the belief that destitution caused by fast population growth in the third world is responsible for the severe pressure to emigrate to the developed countries of Europe and North America. There are two distinct questions here: first, how great a threat of intolerable immigration pressure does the North face from the South, and second, is that pressure closely related to population growth in the South, rather than to other social and economic factors? There are reasons to doubt that population growth is the major force behind migratory pressures.]

However, we should be aware that is part of their value, not a consequence of any idea of sustainability.]

Modern mainstream economics is not all that formal. What the outsider really sees is model-building, which is an altogether different sort of activity. It is important, then, to understand what a model is and what it is not.]

[The rise of modernity can be taken either as a change from earlier centuries to today, involving something like „development,¾ as the demise of a „traditional¾ society and the rise of the „modern.¾ This is an acultural theory that conceives of modernity as the growth of reason, defined as the growth of scientific consciousness, or the development of a secular outlook, or the rise of instrumental rationality, or an ever-clearer distinction between fact-finding and evaluation. But modernity is not that one form of life toward which every culture converges as it discards beliefs. Nor is it a set of transformations that any and every culture can go through--and that all will probably be forced to undergo. Modernity is a movement from one background of understandings to another. Outlines the terms of a cultural theory.]

[Identifies four basic premises of social science and history studies: that new is better than old; that simple precedes the complex; that knowledge (scientific) becomes increasingly certain and predictive (nomothetic); and that boundaries of the state express fundamental units of society. Together, these as sources of most "anomalies" in social science. Proposes five steps to undo these: replace "society" with "historical system;" deidealize, historicize and particularize the gemeinschaft-gesellschaft antinomy; erase the separation between "arenas" of activity--economy, polity, and culture (liberals), or base and superstructure (Marxists); undo the association between culture and pastness, and rethink the distinctions between the past and the present; and fifth, undo the notion that science simplifies, or even, is completely distinct from art.

[Mortality rates in the developed world are no longer related to per capita economic growth but are now related to the scale of income equality in each society. This represents a transition from the primacy of material constraints to social constraints as the limiting condition on the quality of life.]

For people worried about inequality or environmental degradation, the question is not whether capitalism has consequences but whether its consequences are better or worse than those of some feasible economic alternative.]

[Indicators used to direct economic policy (GDP, national income, etc.) may not tell the whole story: continued deterioration of the environment is leading us closer to crisis. Meanwhile, policymakers and the public are basing decisions on dangerously incomplete information. Leading experts make the ethical, historical, economic, and ecological arguments for including environmental factors when measuring fiscal health. Initiated by the Club of Rome (an international group of influential businessmen, statesmen, and scientists), and written in cooperation with the World Wide Fund for Nature, this report reviews existing methodologies and makes recommendations for adjusting the way we think about and measure the economy.]
