THE TOPIC IS : Drawing examples from what you have read and heard in this course, offer a careful evaluation of the claim that H A Innis’ work, commonly regarded as laying the foundations of Canadian staples theory, “embodied a crude materialism inherited in large part from [Thorsten] Veblen which led to a systematic neglect of the role of social relations of production in economic life…[and produced] a rigidly deterministic interpretation of economic history whose central feature was commodity fetishism – the attribution of creative powers in the historical process to the staple commodity as a natural and technical object.’
READ the question carefully. THINK hard about possible approaches and the way in which you will choose to answer it. Review the material in the relevant RESEARCH REPOSITORY for items of particular relevance. USE these to deepen your understanding. WRITE a cogent, logical, well-thought-through answer. Here a clear argument, evidence of well-rounded understanding of the topic and salient issues related thereto, and a evidence that you have identified a clear measure of significance in framing your answer will be important. Lucidity is more important than length.
