Example text

Peripheral countries possess all the negative features of semi-peripheral ones, but fall short of the semiperiphery's complement of positive indicators. Peripheral countries are marginalized in the worldsystem for one of both of two basic flaws, so far as core interests are concerned: 1. 2. they are insufficiently profitable, or they present challenges to the world order. First, most countries are marginalized because they offer core investors few profit-making opportunities. Their instability and unpredictability, and weak infrastructure for capitalist development, makes them generally unattractive to investors.

Given that the size of the periphery (more than 100 countries at present) exceeds that of the core and semi-periphery combined (fewer than 80 countries combined), most efforts to address the inter-group heterogeneity have focused on the periphery. Decades ago, the term 'Fourth World' entered the development studies lexicon to distinguish the poorest and least industrialized countries from the Third World'. More recently, terms such as 'advanced periphery' versus 'true periphery' make a similar distinction (Van Rossem, 1996; Sharda et at, 1998).
