Later, inColin Clark developed this theme to create the Clark-Fisher development theory, also called the Fisher-Clark model. The Clark-Fisher model shares some characteristics of early linear stage models and later structural change models. In this model, structural change must occur for economic progress to occur in capitalist economies.

Fourth, structural adjustment exacerbates poverty, which also may increase forest loss. In this regard, a focus on raw material exports prevents increases in the sort of value-added industries. Dependency theory uses political and economic theory to explain how the process of international trade and domestic development makes some LDCs ever more economically dependent on developed countries Balanced Growth Theory Balanced growth (or the big push) theory argues that as a large number of industries develop simultaneously, each generates.

Wheat formed the single most important arable crop, but rye, barley and oats were also cultivated extensively.

Economic growth, however, can only be sustainable – and therefore lead to socio-economic development – if these two mechanisms work simultaneously.
