  • The main objective of this document is to synthesize the main aspects of the four major theories of development: modernization, dependency, worldsystems and globalization. These are the principal theoretical explanations to interpret development efforts carried out especially in the developing countries. These theoretical perspectives allow us not only to clarify concepts, to set them in economic and social perspectives, but also to identify recommendations in terms of social policies.
