A question from Yahoo! Answers:
Lessons from development of the East asian countries?
What are the lessons that we as Sri Lankans can get from the development methods of east asian countries
One possible lesson (and there are many) is that the development of large-scale export-oriented enterprise should be encouraged. Another is that policies that benefit farmers may not be the best policies for the long run (in a successfully developing country, the percentage of population employed in farming shrinks over time).
