Anglo-American neo-liberalism is a double-edged sword that at once consolidates and weakens the long-term Western dominance. On the one hand, global capitalism establishes new parameters for modernization and its universalized logic, as Fredric Jameson has argued, effectively penetrates "all these excluded or neglected, 'undeveloped' vacant lots" on the planet. The irrevocable subjection of Third World countries to the global economic system, in other words, testifies to the soft yet indomitable power of Western dominance, which is continuing under new guises in the wake of the Cold War.
