    Abstract

    The concept af 'foreign economic coercive relations' (Hans Roos) is transferred from characterising the subordinate position of the GDR wihtin COMECON to the relations of dependence that economically and politically characterise the modern wolrd-system in Immanuel Wallerstein's meaning. With its combination of an economic dimension manifested in the modern world-economy and a political dimension manifested in an inter-state system, world-system analysis allows to identify the phase-differentiated collapse of the third hegemony after that of Holland and the U.K., nemlig that of the U.S. of America, in both respects. Liberation from the political dynamic connected herewith comes probably before a liberalisation from the coercive foreign economical relations known as neoliberalism, which also act as a barrier against a successfull socio-ecological transformation of world society. The latter can presumably not happen without a reform of the United Nations and the establishment of new socio-economic institutions that can substitute for the neoliberal Washington-consensus.
