Are Rostow’s 5 Stages of growth still ideal for today’s economies? Must an economy follow these 5 stages to achieve sustainable economic growth?
- Makuachukwu Gabriel Ojide
Can technology transfer or technology acquisition enable an economy skip early stages stipulated by Rostow and still achieve sustainable growth?
Please, see summary of Rostow's 5 Stages below:
Below is a detailed outline of Rostow's 5 Stages:
• Traditional society
o characterized by subsistence agriculture or hunting & gathering; almost wholly a "primary" sector economy
o limited technology;
o A static or 'rigid' society: lack of class or individual economic mobility, with stability prioritized and change seen negatively
• Pre-conditions to "take-off"
o external demand for raw materials initiates economic change;
o development of more productive, commercial agriculture & cash crops not consumed by producers and/or largely exported
o widespread and enhanced investment in changes to the physical environment to expand production (i.e. irrigation, canals, ports)
o increasing spread of technology & advances in existing technologies
o changing social structure, with previous social equilibrium now in flux
o individual social mobility begins
o development of national identity and shared economic interests
• Take off
o Urbanization increases, Industrialization proceeds, Technological break through occurs
o the "secondary" (goods-producing) sector expands and ratio of secondary vs. primary sectors in the economy shifts quickly towards secondary
o textiles & apparel are usually the first "take-off" industry, as happened in Great Britain's classic "Industrial Revolution"
• Drive to maturity
o diversification of the industrial base; multiple industries expand & new ones take root quickly
o manufacturing shifts from investment-driven (capital goods) towards consumer durables & domestic consumption
o rapid development of transportation infrastructure
o large-scale investment in social infrastructure (schools, universities, hospitals, etc.)
• Age of mass consumption
o the industrial base dominates the economy; the primary sector is of greatly diminished weight in economy & society
o widespread and normative consumption of high-value consumer goods (e.g. automobiles)
o consumers typically (if not universally), have disposable income, beyond all basic needs, for additional goods

Counting the cost of COVID-19.
- Kheepe Lawrence Moremi
This morning I browsed through the "e-version" of The Nikkei Asian Business Review. The edition carried normal business and economic stories, but in addition, I saw about six (6) or so stories on COVID-19 or Corona Virus. The content of the different COVID-19 related topics included what most people all over the world see everyday; the number of new cases, the death toll etc., In addition to this however, one sees a lot of content COVID-19 impact on trade, politics, economy etc.,
The question I have, to experts in the field are as follows:-
- How long do you think it will take for the spread of the virus to reach maturity stage, after which the spread plateaus and start declining.
- Are there parallels between COVID-19 and other viruses that broke out before
- What will be the true cost of COVID-19, to societies and communities, economies and politics?
What should be the main objectives of state regulation of economic activity in countries with developed market economies?
- Vladimir D. Ilyin
For economic agents seeking extraterritorial profit the main goal is not the economic development of their country. To achieve their goals corporations hire guest workers and seek locations, which offer cheaper labor, land, etc. (e.g. in China and other Asian countries). The result - the population of developed countries loses professional qualifications and switch to activities not related to the production of vital commodities.
