Friedmans Stages of Growth Model

  1. 1. Friedmans stages of growth model by Charlotte, Tae Eun, Rene, and Manny
  2. 2. Theory● Model of development ○ Four distinct stages ○ Depicts the development of regions during a sustained period of economic growth● Core - areas at the heart of economic activity● Periphery - exploitation and source of raw materials for core regions
  3. 3. Stage 1 (Pre-Industrial)● All the places are peripheral.● Places are isolated (Like these bullet points)● No Interaction between places
  4. 4. Stage 2 (Transitional)● Development of a core● Interaction between places● Development of basic Technology
  5. 5. Stage 3 (Industrial)● Growth Centers (Between the core and peripheral) develop● Stable increase in economy● More Advanced technology
  6. 6. Stage 4 (Post Industrial)● All places are self sufficient● Major interactions● Reduce in inequality
  7. 7. Example: South AfricaStage 3 (Industrial)● Southern Regions and regions close to Johannesburg● Industry and manufacturing● Office buildings (financial hub)● Major roads and airports● Towns have electricity and are all connected
  8. 8. Stage 1:● Northwestern regions● Undeveloped and isolated villages● Subsistence agriculture● Indigenous population isolated from tech.● Rudimentary roads
  9. 9. Strengths● Good Representation● Simple● Realistic/Reasonable● Easy to understand
  10. 10. Weaknesses● Too General● Does not focus on all aspects of development, (Environmental, Social etc.)● Focuses mainly on economic input● Stages two and three are similar
