A) Rostow's Modernization theory Traditional Society characterized by subsistence agriculture or hunting and gathering limited technology Some advancements and improvements to processes, but limited ability for economic growth because of the absence of modern technologies, lack of class or individual economic mobility, with stability prioritized and change seen negatively This is where society generally begins before progressing towards the next stages of growth No centralized nations or political systems. Pre-conditions to "take-off" External demand for raw materials initiates economic change. Development of more productive, commercial agriculture and cash crops not consumed by producers and/or largely exported. Widespread and enhanced investment in changes to the physical environment to expand production (i.e. irrigation, canals, ports) Increasing spread of technology and advances in existing technologies Changing social structure, with previous social equilibrium now in flux Individual social mobility begins Development of national identity and shared economic interests. Take-off Urbanization increases, industrialization proceeds, technological breakthroughs occur.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
