Imperialism and settler capital? friends or foes?

Raises and clarifies some of the following issues: Should the government expropriate settler farms or the vast foreign estates? Is it more rational to rely on foreign as opposed to settler capital to reinvest profits locally? Can settler capital be relied on to upgrade its existing labour force or allow for increased worker participation any more (or less) than foreign capital? Are such calculations of the chances of capital co-operating with the Zimbabwean government in fact best evaluated in terms of such distinctions between ‘foreign’ and ‘settler’ capital, or would they be more appropriately analyzed in terms of a sectoral breakdown of capital? Notes.

Abstract: Raises and clarifies some of the following issues: Should the government expropriate settler farms or the vast foreign estates? Is it more rational to rely on foreign as opposed to settler capital to reinvest profits locally? Can settler capital be relied on to upgrade its existing labour force or allow for increased worker participation any more (or less) than foreign capital? Are such calculations of the chances of capital co-operating with the Zimbabwean government in fact best evaluated in terms of such distinctions between ‘foreign’ and ‘settler’ capital, or would they be more appropriately analyzed in terms of a sectoral breakdown of capital?
