Description:

This paper examines the relationship between a nation's technological advances and its individualistic culture. The paper explains that in order to examine the correlation between individualism and technology, one must first understand the roots and meaning of individualism. The paper looks at how and why technologically advanced countries possess a more individualistic culture than less developed countries. The paper then discusses the idea of individualism in the under developed country of Uganda. In conclusion, the paper shows that technologically advanced countries or nations possess a more individualistic culture then less developed countries that fall victim to those nations on which they depend on for survival; therefore, technology is a product of individualism and is necessary for a country's economic growth.

From the Paper:

"Since a nation's HDI is analyzed to measure its developed status, it is safe to assume that social problems play a major factor in a country's development. And if a nation's income per capita is also utilized as a measurement, then it is also safe to assume that distribution of wealth is another major factor. A balance between a country's social problems and its ability to maintain steady profit to support such social problems, (i.e. poverty, literacy, education, etc.), is necessary for any country to develop. Which leads to the next question, how do developed countries such as the United States maintain that balance? Some may beg to differ on this reasoning, but for others the answer is quite clear; technologically advanced countries or nations possess a more individualistic culture then less developed countries that fall victim to those nations on which they depend on for survival; therefore, technology is a product of individualism and is necessary for a country's economic growth."
