In order for a developmental plan to truly succeed, there must be a change in society and culture, so that the people are ready to receive the knowledge and know-how that is given to them. Which brings up ethical issues in and of itself – is one culture necessarily better than another? That may be a question, but there is not a question that cultures which are less developed than other cultures might have issues with adopting new technologies and industrial techniques. Moreover, there is the problem with exploitation – in countries that have adapted, industrially, there is always the problem that the workers toil in substandard conditions, making not even enough to feed themselves, while the owners pocket the money and profits and do not make their societies any better. That said, there is still a reason why development is still a positive goal, even if there are inherent problems in achieving the goals of development. One is that hunger and poverty is still a problem in the world. Another is that overpopulation is a problem in the world, therefore, Third World countries should be privy to all the advances in birth control. A third reason, related to the second reason, is that Third World countries, without the guidance of the Western World, will strip mine their own resources, because they do not know how to do things better. The Western World should import the technologies that help the countries get better use of their own resources. Because these problems affect the entire world – overpopulation and dwindling resources in the Third World countries affect us all – there is now, more than ever, a reason for Truman’s developmental ideas to continue to be implemented around the world.
The analysis begins by looking at what Truman wanted to do, what he proposed to do in his 1949 inaugural address.
