The object of the paper is to place the present issues of world poverty, development, economic transition, and demographic change into proper historical perspective, considering the specificities of present times concerning economic and demographic developments, as well as the international relations associated with them. The specificities of post-World War II developments are singled out, and the perspectives they offer for the history of modes of production and international relations are highlighted. Some speculations concerning possible long run developments conclude the paper.
