On Samir Amin's Strategy of "Delinking" and "Socialist Transition"

Yonghong Zhang

Abstract


This paper aims to analyze Samir Amin's contribution to the strategy of "delinking" and "socialist transition".He analyzes the global capitalist system and argues that its process of capital accumulation is exploitative and destructive of the Third World countries,namely,the periphery.The global capitalist model has created underdevelopment and marginalization in the periphery.Accordingly,the Third World countries need to "delink" from the capitalism-led globalization and the world capitalist system,and make a socialist transition,which,in essence,is a new development model characterized by liberation and a full and effective participation of the Third World countries in the global system.Amin's strategy provides a model for change and development of many underdeveloped countries.
