“Neither in the countries of the ‘developed’ nor in those of the ‘developing? World can industrialization be said to manifest itself as a uniform process which might respond to ‘ideological’ guidance by governments or others. On the contrary, it is a notably heterogeneous phenomenon influenced by many different economic, social and political factors which determine the level of momentum. Consequently, there is no ultimate key to success which might be passed on to countries wishing to follow suit. Success stories of some years ago (Japan, Finland), or of more recent times (South Korea, Portugal), involving countries in which agriculture traditionally played a predominant part turning into modern, industrial economies, will always be special cases with their root causes in the country's history, in the surrounding economic conditions during certain periods, and other such factors. Moreover, industrialization is interdependent when viewed from a global perspective; that is to say, ever more attention now needs to be given to the economic relations and interrelationships of the ‘industrializing’ countries which constitute a network of economies at the most varied stages of development.” Borrmann, Axel and Wolff, Hans-Ulrich (1991)
