      Baran of Stanford argues in another widely-used text, The Political Economy of Growth: To the dead weight of stagnation characteristic of pre-industrial society was added the entire restrictive impact of monopoly capitalism. The impression that China has exploited resources without building up local economies has triggered fierce criticism from some leaders. Most West African countries were colonized by Britain and French and after many years of colonizationwaves of independence swept across the West African Countries like wild-fire and this is the reason most West African countries have their years of independence at a close range. There is still significant lack of transparency in the country. The Panel provides accessible and readable research reports for senior policy makers and other stakeholders.

      As to the second group—made up of people in the West who are sufficiently disillusioned with their own society to have become disaffected from or even hostile to it—some of them see the Third World as a useful instrument for promoting their cause in what is in essence a civil conflict in the West. Christopher Alessi and Beina Xu contributed to this report. For example, before colonial rule there was not a single cocoa tree in the Gold Coast Ghana ; when colonial rule ended, cocoa exports, entirely from African-owned and operated farms, totaled hundreds of thousands of tons annually—and this was the case with external trade in general. In such a situation the energies and resources of people, particularly the most ambitious and energetic, are diverted from economic activity to political life, partly from choice and partly from necessity. Very to the point.

      In fact, however, Western goods have been selectively and not indiscriminately accepted in the Third World and have been of massive benefit to millions of people there. It has exceeded our expectations. Over large areas there have been few contacts with the West. But the general thrust is unequivocal. David H. Baran of Stanford argues in another widely-used text, The Political Economy of Growth: To the dead weight of stagnation characteristic of pre-industrial society was added the entire restrictive impact of monopoly capitalism.
