The essay explains two theories for the worsening position of third world countries: Underdevelopment Theory and Economic Liberalism, which blames the external world economy and the social and political systems of the third world countries themselves, respectively. The essay then turns to VS Naipaul's novel and shows that the author implies support for the position of Economic Liberalism.
From the Paper:"The general philosophy of Underdevelopment is that the international economy operates systematically to sustain underdevelopment and distort the economies of the less developed economies. [Greene, F p 142] and that this system is detrimental to the poorer economies. The book does not support this position. The nation described, newly independent, was experiencing it's own economic woes directly related to internal issues "there were other traders, other foreigners; some of them had been there right through the troubles. The peace held". [p. 10]"
