Changing Perspectives on Rural Development.
Axinn, George H.
The purpose of this presentation is to examine changing perspectives of rural development in an effort to better understand change in rural social systems and to analyze interactions between systems in general. The 1st section of this report is devoted to an analytic framework for intersystem interaction which entails a donor/recipient construct designed to achieve intersystem diplomacy by taking account of all professional, human, administrative, and political components in each system. The concepts of an international elite and a superiority syndrome are also presented in this section. Section 2 presents an analytic framework for rural development (defined in terms of underdevelopment, overdevelopment, and balanced development cycles as measured by utilization of resources), and presentation is made of a rural development model which describes 8 major components and their linkage systems, providing for: (1) analysis of the effect of a component change; (2) evaluation of the equity and cost-benefit ratio of individual components; and (3) measurement of the direction of component transactions. In light of the models presented, the 3rd section proposes a doctrine of interactive reciprocity between the rural social systems and the governments of each country and between nation/states to facilitate a rural renaissance.
