Probably that should have been my quote when I posted my previous email,
addressing this issue simply from memory, and without having done some
serious reading before my comments...

The last thing i read about Frank (and by Frank as well) on "the development
HONOUR OF ANDRE GUNDER FRANK" ed. by Sing Chew and Robert Denemark, Thousand
Oaks: Sage Publications 1996. That is fairly recent, so I take it it still
reflect more or less, AG Frank's "current view". His contribution to the
book can be found online at http://csf.colorado.edu/agfrank/underdev.html .
Let each one derive from it what they will. Or, maybe easier and more
accurate, would be directing that same question you posed to AG Frank
himself, for the benefit of us all...
