a false dilemma

10Oct07

The neoliberal proposal as instrument of globalization is presented in Latin America as the only alternative to barbarism. The dilemma is posed as either do what neoliberal theory proposes or be left out. Conceptually, however, Latin America and Africa are excluded from globalization anyway. Therefore, this is a false dilemma. Modernization through opening up to outside influence is attractive bait to get us to bite the lure of globalization which global communication dangles in front of us.
