From resource frontier to periphery: agricultural colonization East of the Andes

Auteur :
SCHUURMAN F. J.,

Description :
From the 1960's onward, agricultural colonization of the Amazon-basin, East of the Andes, increasingly attracted State attention. Planned colonization projects were started but were not very successful in terms of their stated objectives. It is shown that the colonists become subjected to the national and international capitalist system by way of unequal exchange relations. In addition, natural resources (oil, gas and timber) are freely exploited by the capitalist centres. The Amazon-basin has not been able to realize its development potential as a resource frontier and is increasingly turned into a periphery by the (inter) national centres. (AGD).
