What does your text say?
Hi Sue This for question 10
Why are some people and countries poor, and how can they achieve development similar
to that experienced in the Western world? Modernization theory is informed by both
classical sociology and economics. It stems from Charles Darwin’s theory of evolution,
which social scientists later reinterpreted as progress toward a better future, with Western
society at the pinnacle (“developed nations”). If Western society is developed, then
other societies and cultures are underdeveloped by definition and can be placed in stages
along the path to development. Rostow (1956, 1960; see Figure 8.5) argues that the most
important stage of economic development is the “take-off,” when the development process
accelerates and continued growth becomes inevitable. Note Rostow’s language used
in the last stage—”high mass consumption”—which is reminiscent of Bodley’s comments
about “cultures of consumption.”
OK. You agree with your text. It's probably correct.
It does fit my experience with Vietnam between 1996 and the present.
It adopted Western ways, despite having a Communist economy. When I was there last in 2007, it was much more developed than before.
