Abstract

Contrary to many arguments put forward by the dependency school, there is not much quantitative evidence that the transfer of Western technology has had an adverse effect on the modernization of the South. Also, the foreign monopolies of modern technology seem to be less permanent than is suggested by the dependency literature. In fact, many developing countries (e.g., Brazil, Mexico, South Korea) have been successful in building up their domestic potential with the help of Western technology, and in advancing the capability of a large number of industries.
