A statement that there are different types of modernity is interesting but not very useful. We would want to know which type of modernity is more supportive of, or conducive to, economic betterment, what are the condi tions that yield one type of modernity as opposed to another, and whether the evolutionary path from pre-modernity to modernity is amenable to policy intervention.
