      The assertion followed from a rather constricted view of possible "paths" of capitalist accumulation and a highly stereotyped and idealized view of how the "paths" of the developed capitalist countries, which were then posited as models against which current development experiences could be judged, had actually been. To the extent that perceptions of welfarism and state interventionism spilled over into the aid business, it is not surprising that the aid discourse has embraced some of the anti-statism of neo-liberalism. The quest for a "strong state" in the development process was a strong feature of the "modernization" literature. The notion of the developmental state has come under attack in recent years.

      In this literature "rent seeking" invokes the expenditure of resources to capture artificially created rents. Or, conversely, if there is anything that African business classes failed to do it was to "capture" state policies. Inhalt Chalmers Johnson and the Politics 1. Third, despite the many distortions of import substitution, up until the second "oil" crisis many African economies had performed relatively well. During the Korean war, the country was devastated both physically and mentally. The main force behind the developmentalist ideology has usually been nationalism, inducing nations to seek to "catch up" with countries considered as more developed, to firm the resource base for national defence and security, etc.

      Korea after their independence in lead to end of economic ties with Japan which they were heavily relied upon. Such descriptions pointed to one fact, namely, that the African state was not up to its "historical mission" of ensuring capitalist accumulation. In the African debates, the fear of the Beyond the developmental state book effects of rent seeking has not only sustained the argument for a minimalist state, but has also given the foreign experts, who for inexplicable reasons do not engage in rent seeking like all other mortal beings, a moral upper hand. These new leaders swear by economic growth and seem to view good growth indicators as the main source of their legitimacy. Long-term loans and credits were given for higher competence in global market, thereby increasing export. The absence of a group of large indigenous capitalists with sizeable capital, organizational resources and entrepreneurial skills, obviated the need for the new states to form an alliance with such classes for its development project.

It also displays ignorance or idealization of the Asian experience and thus occults the very complex processes behind the successful performance of these economies. Early criticism of the state in Africa came from the neo-Marxists whose own epithets to Beyond the developmental state book the pathological condition of the African state included the "petty bourgeois state", the "neo-colonial state" and the "dependent state".

They tend to have a strong government, also called a "developmental state" or "hard state", and have leaders who can confront multinationals and demand that they operate to protect their people's interests. Considerable empirical work was produced indicating certain historical regularities associated with economic growth, the idea being that once identified they could then be deliberately introduced or manipulated through aid schemes and "development planning" in the underdeveloped countries to initiate or accelerate the growth process.

It is essential to stress these ideological underpinnings of state policies for it is these that provide the rationale for some of the "policies" and give legitimacy to otherwise unpalatable "sacrifices", not only because they serve as the "opium of the masses", but also because they knead together the ruling class.

The state was Beyond the developmental state book essentially a rent generating institution that inhibited efficient allocation of resources.

The point of the Asian experience is that the use of "rent seeking" Beyond the developmental state book an argument against a more active developmental state is simply not credible.

Many other political leaders and analysts have elaborated on this lacuna. While the concept points to something real in most economies, it has been made to carry more than it can bear.

One sees in the tortured logic of the presentation of the Asian miracle, especially with respect to industrial policy and its reduction of a complex set of pro-active state policies into a vacuous "market friendliness".

Like "neo-patrimonialism", rent seeking is used in a procrustean manner so that it ultimately assumes the character of a bogeyman. Ominously, these leaders are more attentive to the apprehensions and appreciation of international organizations than to their domestic capitalists.

The economy is planned by the government; it arranges the market demand of labor on one hand and provides the supply of labor on the other hand.

Elsewhere Jomo notes: "Rent transfers may well contribute to, rather than undermine further investments in the national economy since rentiers can usually count on further advantages from such investment.
