This is wonderful. It fits what I am working on. You have C, SP, and P countries identified. I have worked exclusively with Mexico and only incidently with other countries. I wonder what you base your plotting of each nation. There is also movement through time up and down the C-SP-P scale. I show some of this for Mexico. Also, get this--in looking at Tarahumara forestry I suggested the concept of the periphery of the periphery to explain the place of the Tarahumara in the periphery of the Chihuahua economy (Weaver 1996). From this I hypothesized that the C-SP-P is replicated at each level in terms of ethnic or class divisions.


For a brief view see the "Highlights" from above and also the Cray supercomputer summary from above which gives the earlier methodology.
