Abstract

The paper argues that the core-periphery metaphor currently used by world systems theorists is founded around a narrow spatial epistemology. It contends that recent work within the social services should inform world systems theory in producing a reformulated spatial understanding of the core-periphery metaphor, embodying a wider conception of space to include abstract social spaces. The world economy must be understood as having a social core : a transnational business elite exercising decision-making power, such as that of Santiago
