 Abstract: This thesis will explore the concept of poverty and the effect of the world system on the economic growth of poor nations. The world’s population is increasing rapidly and poverty is still widespread at high levels and poor nations are becoming even more marginalized when it comes to global decision-making. During the years of economic liberalization, it was assumed that this belief would lead to economic growth, and hence was good for development. However, this thesis will show that liberalization is not the best route for the economic progress of the world’s poor nations. Economic growth is mainly stimulated by opportunities that lead to the integration of less-developed countries into international markets.
This thesis argues that the rise of a potential new world order, represented by multipolarity, is a key for promoting poor nations’ economic performance. A Neo-Marxist approach, also, emphasizes that a change in the world system is crucial in order to overcome the obstacles of development that have been created during the “old” world order. In a multipolar world, cooperation between less-developed nations and their emerging neighbor states would be a prominent feature in combating world poverty. The thesis, therefore, will conclude that more research is necessary to determine the overall impact of this new world order on reducing poverty as well as to define mechanisms that can stimulate development for the poor in the new system.
