Sam's paper is exactly what is needed to help us understand the broader
parameters of the debate. Although Sam is a trained economist with a
postgraduate degree, he makes his living as a cook in Vancouver. As far as
I know, his paper was written for the love of knowledge and not meant to
appear in some obscure journal for his CV. That is, unless he plans to get
a job at a restaurant specializing in third world specialties. He has also
traveled widely in Latin America, where many of his insights about
dependency were gleaned from first-hand experience. He is true Gramscian
"organic intellectual" of the type that this list is meant to be a home
for. I salute Sam.
