De-development: …the relationship between Israel and Gaza is unsual and lies outside existing development paradigms. Instead, this relationship is characterized by an economic process specific to Israel rule, a process that could be characterized as de-development. De-development, it is here asserted, is the deliberate, systematic deconstruction of an indigenous economy by a dominant power. It is qualitative different from underdevelopment, wich by contrast allows somo form, albeit distort, of economic development. De-development is an economic policy designed to ensure that there will be no economic base, even one that is malformed, to support an indepent indigenous existence.
