Schumpeter and Karl Polanyi were quite important influences as well

a rewrite of this article should incorporate materials from his own self-analysis posted at

also, this article has no citations for its claims

Immanuel Wallerstein will be featured, along with speakers Marnia Lazreg and Joseph Massad, in "Islam and the Modern Orientalist World-System," the 30th Conference of the Political Economy of the World-System (PEWS) Section of the American Sociological Association (ASA) at Macalester College in St. Paul, MN. April 27 - 29, 2006. [1]

I'm a member of Macalester College's Middle Eastern Student Association and a volunteer for the Conference in April. This event will be very exciting, and a great opportunity to hear so many highly acclaimed academicians. DevinMcGevin 10:24, 15 April 2006 (UTC)

World system[edit]

This article should mention something about his world system theory: [2].--Piotr Konieczny aka Prokonsul Piotrus Talk 21:40, 25 April 2006 (UTC)

I agree. DIY? Mgekelly - Talk 04:34, 26 April 2006 (UTC)
I did link the term, but I know little abou the theory - somebody more familiar with it should expand the relevant sections.--Piotr Konieczny aka Prokonsul Piotrus Talk 22:44, 26 April 2006 (UTC)


Is there a reason that all of the "works" listed are books? I think it would be appropriate to include his more influential articles as well. The one that comes to mind as being his most influential article (certainly more influential than many of the books listed) is "The Rise and Future Demise of the World Capitalist System: Concepts for Comparative Analysis," Comparative Studies in Society and History, Vol. 16, No. 4. (Sep., 1974), pp. 387-415. --Lacarids (talk) 18:31, 12 July 2012 (UTC)

"intrinsic value"?[edit]

The following claim is problematic and needs to be elaborated on:

Natural resources, land, labor and human relationships are gradually being stripped of their "intrinsic" value

According to Marx, it is is clear that ‘value’ is not a natural property of things (Capital V1, 126 fn.7) but on the other, for people living in a commodity producing society, it appears as if things possess an "intrinsic value" (Ibid., 126, 989).

The Modern World-System vol. 5 and 6[edit]

I see that he is planning two more volumes (pretty ambitious for an 83 year old man). When does he plan to finish them? --Oddeivind (talk) 18:35, 22 May 2014 (UTC)
