Interpretations of the appropriate role for government in both strategic countries (SCs) and nonstrategic countries (NSCs) differ markedly. While some scholars view the state as a corrective for the excesses and failures of the market, others see it as the very source of these problems. More recently the World Bank (1997b) has adopted a compromise stance between these extreme positions. Yet none of these viewpoints captures the real role of the state in the Third World. The reason, as we have come to expect, is that economists have no general model of development that encompasses both the global strategic transition (GST) and the national process by which the reins of power pass between economic groups in society. Their views about the state are either ideologically or philosophically based.
