Many Marxist prefer to use sweeping generalisations about global capitalism,
'Third World', 'dependent capitalism', 'formally independent nations which
are semi colonies in reality' etc. I am asking for concrete analyses of
specific social formations. How do you know that India or Iran are
'formally' independent? Can you demonstrate that capital accumulation in
India (or Iran) is largely driven by 'the West' or 'Global Capitalism'?
