Abstract:The economic war of General Idi Amin Dada represents a model of one way to attack an inheritance of international dependence. In an unequal economic relationship, the structures of dependent economies serve the interests of both superior external economies and established domestic groups. Therefore, it was logical and inevitable Chat the regime of Uganda's Second Republic would turn from the expulsion of 'foreign' capitalists to confront indigenous groups whose status in part depended on their relationships with external economies. The sections are: the inheritance of dependence of the Second Republic - confrontation with the structures of dependence - Amin's economic choices - the new Ugandan military aristocracy - Cowards a new dependency - black capitalism: independence or subordination - guerrillas in Uganda: confronting the new dependency.
