Combining them, neo-Marxists such as Baran (1957) and Frank (1967) argued that imperialisms of the past had structured the world economy into a form where underdevelopment was reproduced in the periphery, whose continued exploitation was essential to core economies' own accumulation. This diagnosis was accompanied by a radical revision in politics, too.
