Abstract

The trade and technology regimes of WTO and TRIPS embody the values, objectives, and operational dynamics that primarily satisfy Western powers. Southern states submit to these constraining regimes only to the extent of avoiding severe penalties. They feign compliance whenever possible through "stealthy noncompliance" in order to advance their development and security. This paper addresses three issues: the West-South asymmetrical struggle over technology and trade; the role of state-supported technological development in the South; and the prospective consequences for the South relating to the restricted labor-absorbing capacity of twenty-first century technology.
