Of particular significance to the development of the world system was the European Age of Discovery, wherein the European sphere of influence began to be exported far beyond its physical boundaries by means of conquest and trade.

McGraw-Hill © 2004 The McGraw-Hill Companies, Inc. 4 Influence of the Capitalist World Economy The defining attribute of capitalism is economic orientation to the world market for profit. Colonial plantation systems led to monocrop production in areas that once had diverse subsistence bases (beginning in the seventeenth century). Colonial commodities production was oriented toward the European market.
McGraw-Hill © 2004 The McGraw-Hill Companies, Inc. 5 Wallerstein’s World System Theory Wallerstein has argued that international trade has led to the creation of a capitalist world economy in which a social system based on wealth and power differentials extends beyond individual states.
McGraw-Hill © 2004 The McGraw-Hill Companies, Inc. 6 The world system is arranged according to influence: core (most dominant), to semi-periphery, to periphery (least dominant). –The core consists of the strongest and most powerful nations in which technologically advanced, capital-intensive products are produced and exported to the semiperiphery and the periphery. –The semiperiphery consists of industrialized Third World nations that lack the power and economic dominance of the core nations (Brazil is a semiperiphery nation). –The periphery consists of nations whose economic activities are less mechanized and are primarily concerned with exporting raw materials and agricultural goods to the core and semiperiphery.

McGraw-Hill © 2004 The McGraw-Hill Companies, Inc. 8 Industrialization initially produced goods that were already widely used and in great demand (cotton products, iron, and pottery). Manufacturing shifted from homes to factories where production was large scale and cheap. Industrialization fueled a new kind of urban growth in which factories clustered together in regions where coal and labor were cheap.
McGraw-Hill © 2004 The McGraw-Hill Companies, Inc. 9 England and France The Industrial Revolution began in England but not in France. The French did not have to transform their domestic manufacturing system in order to increase production because it could draw on a larger labor force. England, however, was already operating at maximum production so that in order to increase yields innovation was necessary. Weber argued that the pervasiveness of Protestant beliefs in values contributed to the spread and success of industrialization in England, while Catholicism inhibited industrialization in France.
McGraw-Hill © 2004 The McGraw-Hill Companies, Inc. 10 Weber vs. Marx
McGraw-Hill © 2004 The McGraw-Hill Companies, Inc. 11 Industrial Stratification Although initially, industrialization in England raised the overall standard of living, factory owners soon began to recruit cheap labor from among the poorest populations. Marx saw this trend as an expression of a fundamental capitalist opposition: the bourgeoisie (capitalists) versus the proletariat (propertyless workers). According to Marx, the bourgeoisie owned the means of production and promoted industrialization to maintain their position, consequently intensifying the dispossession of the workers (a process called proletarianization). Weber argued that Marx’s model was oversimplified and developed a model with three main factors contributing to socioeconomic stratification: wealth, power, and prestige
McGraw-Hill © 2004 The McGraw-Hill Companies, Inc. 12 Industrial Stratification (cont.) Class consciousness (Marx) is the recognition of a commonalty of interest and identification with the other members of one’s economic stratum. With considerable modification, it is recognized that a combination of the Marxian and Weberian models may be used to describe the modern capitalist world. The distinction, core-semiperiphery-periphery, is used to describe a worldwide division of labor and capital ownership, but it is pointed out that the growing middle class and the existence of peripheries within core nations complicate the issue beyond the vision of Marx or Weber.
McGraw-Hill © 2004 The McGraw-Hill Companies, Inc. 13 Poverty on the Periphery With the expansion of capitalism into the periphery, most of the local landowners have been displaced from their land by large landowners who in turn hired the displaced people at low wages to work the land they once owned. Bangladesh is a good example of this in which British colonialism increased stratification, as only a few landowners own most of the land.
McGraw-Hill © 2004 The McGraw-Hill Companies, Inc. 14 Malaysian Factory Women To combat rural poverty, the Malaysian government has encouraged large international companies to set up labor- intensive manufacturing operations in rural Malaysia. Factory life contrasts sharply with the traditional customs of the rural Malaysians. Aihwa Ong has studied the effect of work in Japanese electronics factories on Malaysian women employees. Severe contrasts between the work conditions and the culture of the women generate alienation, which results in stress.
McGraw-Hill © 2004 The McGraw-Hill Companies, Inc. 15 Malaysian Factory Women (cont.) This stress has been manifested as possession by weretigers, which expresses the workers’ resistance, but has as yet effected little change in the overall situation. Ong argues that spirit possession is a form of rebellion and resistance that enable factory women to avoid direct confrontation with the source of their distress. Spirit possessions were not very effective at bringing about improvements in the factory conditions, and actually they may help maintain the current conditions by operating as a safety valve for stress.
McGraw-Hill © 2004 The McGraw-Hill Companies, Inc. 16 Open and Closed Class Systems Formalized inequalities have taken many forms, such as caste, slavery, and class systems. Caste systems are closed, hereditary systems of stratification that are often dictated by religion (the Hindu caste systems of the Indian subcontinent are given as an example). South African apartheid is given as comparable to a caste system, in that it was ascriptive and closed through law. State sanctioned slavery, wherein humans are treated as property, is the most extreme form of legalized inequality. Vertical mobility refers to the upward or downward change in a person's status. –Vertical mobility exists only in open class systems. –Open class systems are more commonly found in modern states than in archaic states.
McGraw-Hill © 2004 The McGraw-Hill Companies, Inc. 17 The World System Today World system theory argues that the present-day interconnectedness of the world has generated a global culture, wherein the trends of complementarity and specialization are being manifested at an international level. The modern world system is the product of European imperialism and colonialism. –Imperialism refers to a policy of extending rule of a nation or empire over foreign nations and of taking and holding foreign colonies. –Colonialism refers to the political, social, economic, and cultural domination of a territory and its people by a foreign power for an extended period of time.

McGraw-Hill © 2004 The McGraw-Hill Companies, Inc. 19 The American Periphery Thomas Collins compared two counties at opposite ends of Tennessee, both of which used to have economies dominated by agriculture and timber, but now have few employment opportunities. The population in Hill County in eastern Tennessee is mostly white and opposes labor unions, which has attracted some Japanese companies to the county. The population in Delta County in western Tennessee is mostly black and strongly supports labor unions, which has deterred companies from setting up factories in the county.

Expansion of the world system is often accompanied by genocide, ethnocide, and ecocide.
