Fifa World Cup Finals: Catalyst for Infrastructural Development? a Case Study of South Africa 2010

Fifa World Cup Finals: Catalyst for Infrastructural Development? a Case Study of South Africa 2010

This article explored how the dynamics of the global political economy influences international games, such as, the FIFA World Cup. It further examined the extent of exaggeration of myths and benefits of the 2010 FIFA World Cup to South Africans, neighboring states, FIFA officials and the global community in the post game period. To effectively explain and understand the article, we adopted the Theory of Commercial Liberalism and argued that whenever nations compete for the hosting right for such tournament, they are mainly but not exclusively driven by the benefits that accrue. The relevance of this theory as forming the theoretical framework is based on the simple understanding that man´s fundamental reasoning is cooperation in order to prosper.

African Growth and Opportunity Act: Myth and Reality

African Growth and Opportunity Act: Myth and Reality

In this paper, we examined the African Growth Opportunity Act (AGOA) aimed at facilitating socio-economic growth and development in Africa in line with the neo-liberal ideology. We largely relied on centre – periphery model for our analysis and argued that African countries especially the Sub Saharan African countries expected to benefit from this US development policy would be unable to do so because they lack independent technological base, capital and manpower to permeate and compete in the American market. Again these states in Africa are in the periphery and US is a centre nation. While the later state expropriates the resources of the former because of this relative weakness of the periphery, the former designed AGOA as one of the strategies of intensification of US exploitation of Africa through trade. This paper calls for a global support for technology and capital exchange to enable African (Industries) to effectively compete in US markets.
