Heaven on Earth: The Rise and Fall of Socialism
Therefore the best path for poor countries was to seal themselves off from foreign trade and investment. Thanks largely to following this bad advice, the southern countries achieved little if any economic growth throughout their first few decades of independence. Yet it was not even this dismal record that finally awakened the world to the folly of the socialist path to development.
That strategy worked to lift these countries from dire poverty to the global middle class and beyond.
Other countries in East Asia were the first to learn from this example. And its economic growth has broken all records. But in the Arab world and Africa , getting away from the failed socialist model has proved more difficult. Lip service is paid to the need for foreign investment. As serious as is the problem of unemployment, too many people are employed by government with too little to do. Alternate Versions. Rate This. Director: Brittany Huckabee.
