ECLA's distinction between center and periphery found expression (although in different terms) in Gunder Frank's radical critique of modernization theory and import substitution policy. Frank (1967:6) envisioned the "development of underdevelopment" caused by a single chain of exploitation which extended from metropolitan centers of the world system to the farthest outpost in the Latin American countryside. The bold metaphor drove home the idea that underdevelopment, far from being a passive state caused by being left behind in the transition to modernity, was the outcome of an active process determined and modified by capital accumulation and expansion in metropolitan centers of the global economy.

Other studies, mostly in social demography, reverse the causal direction to show that changes in economic organization impose optimizing pressures on the population, thereby affecting reproductive behavior. The transition from high to low fertility and mortality regimes, for example, is attributed to the evolution of bureaucratic, commercial, technical and urban-based employment.

Conceptual framework The framework proposed in this chapter views Brazil's political, socioeconomic and demographic organization as interacting dimensions of a geopolitical unit that is itself part of a larger world system. We contend that the demographic phenomena which take place within families or households - such as births, deaths and decisions to migrate can be understood as behaviors that are embedded in, and that interact with, a set of extra-household structures and processes, some of which extend beyond the boundaries of the country itself.
