This article examines some of the contributions of Andre Gunder Frank, including the relationship between equity and efficiency, and the problems created by most development projects. We examine the processes by which the study of justice can be informed by historically specific social relations as well as spiritual and material conditions. We discuss and extend Frank’s critical perspective on Eurocentric prescriptions for fairness and the dynamics of dependency and marginalization. In this context, our extension presents an analysis of liberation theology and an indigenous perspective on diversity rather than deviance.
