Intercultural contact and communication have allegedly increased in the context of globalization. Both terms are, however, little transparent, evoke a host of associations and carry ideological baggage. The present article proposes a framework to understand current socio-economic processes by recourse to a particular heterodox economic view (Regulationism). I will argue from this point of view that although there is no such thing as globalization there are some changes - dominated by neoliberal policies - that increase the gap between rich and poor inter- and intranationally. Since these changing structural conditions of distribution (class) impact Fundamentally on issues of recognition (identity), i.e. the core of approaches to intercultura1 communication, I conclude that any theory of the latter has to take economic and political structures into consideration.
