    This essay addresses the impact of globalization and neoliberalism on post-colonial countries such as South Africa. We analyze the historical background and contemporary nature of the current stage of global economic expansion, considered by many critical observers to be the latest stage of capitalist imperialism. This analysis connects many of the challenges faced by post-apartheid South Africa to the international economic and political relations that have shaped the development of the peripheral economies in the contemporary global economic system.
