Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I'm not querying the math - see first para. -  but saying that how/when/where it is applied may be a political choice or based on available funding.  Neither am I dismissing the modernisation theory entirely - it is a model that can be applied - just saying that it is not the only, or necessarilly the "best" theory, but that it is very congruent with the dominant western conceptions of development and underdevelopment.
