This paper discusses the different approaches to the development of Third World countries. Through a review of the writing of Hodder's "Development Geography" (2000), and Cypher and Dietz's "The Process of Economic Development" (1998), this paper delves into the goals of development and its corresponding impediments. Indicators of development are also used to compare and contrast development around the globe.

From the Paper:

"One thing is certain among the discussion on development and geography: Development is not a rapid process. Many obstacles exist on the course to development, and many impediments are hard to predict and plan for accordingly. However, despite these difficulties economic development is a goal for the world. To begin however, one must define development. According to Hodder, development is, "The process by which traditional society employing traditional, unsophisticated techniques is transformed into a modern, high-technology, high-income economy in which capital, labour skills and scientific knowledge replace labour-intensive methods of production (Hodder 2000, 4.)" This is quite a mouthful, however Hodder defines development as a process, and anything that is a process must have established goals for that process to meet. Let's identify and examine some of the goals of the development process."
