Description

It should be expected that individualistic countries would be more prone to give as individuals, not as collective societies. S. dollars of public money from the rich countries was spent on the development of the poor ones'' where this ‘development’ was often the privatization of natural resources in conjunction with governmental capture, the wealthy often Western countries happy with bribery/corruption and hollowing out the rights of workers and rendering legal provisions unenforceable. This book is a simpler and more accessible version of the more comprehensive - but also more difficult, 'Culture's Consequences'. Although the authors claim to espouse a "values neutral" position (which I have always argued is an impossible and illogical position), their Dutch/Swedish preferences ring out loudly and clearly (humanistic, environmnetalist, etc.

I might have slightly skipped the organisational parts of the book, and headed straight for the evolutionary part. It is not an easy book, but the interested reader will be able to fully understand the ideas; reading an article about factor analysis in an encyclopedia may help to grasp how the data was interpreted.MASCULINITY/FEMININITY: A society is masculine when emotional gender roles are clearly distinct; men are supposed to be assertive, tough, and focused on material success, whereas women are supposed to be modest, tender, and concerned with the quality of life. I suggest to google some critical assessments of Hofstede so you rank this book where it really belongs.

Also nonsense such as, primarily of the second portion of ‘‘The Universal Declaration of Human Rights adopted in 1948 was based on individualist Western values that were and are not shared by the political leaders nor by the populations of the collectivist majority of the world population’’(415) notwithstanding the insultingly simplistic binary these ‘developing nations’ who were indebted/exploited for their low wages with speculative profits not reinvested because of the paucity of ‘human rights’ would like them and remunerative working conditions if you asked them, which is acknowledged just after but which questions why the former was posited ''Without losing the benefits of the present declaration, which in an imperfect way presents at least a norm used to appeal against gross violations, the international community should revise the declaration to include, for example, the rights of groups and minorities.

This is followed by the statement ''looking back to half a century of development assistance, most observers agree [who? The only thing that is common for both is masculinity, that both cultures are quite masculine (index, China 66 and U. INDIVIDUALISM/COLLECTIVISM: Individualism describes societies where the ties between individuals are loose; everyone is expected to look after himself and his immediate family. e., Asians are collectivistic while Americans are individualistic) and can subsequently congeal into misleading and potentially dangerous stereotypes. The fifth dimension which was later added based on results from the Far East and Asia - Long- versus Short-Term Orientation - is not discussed in this book.

Hofstede has developed a model that tries to explain the cultural differences between countries and organizations; this model has been refined and improved over decades. To understand what it means to be human I think it is good to look at how our cultures provide for our basic needs, and how varied these cultures are. It is very interesting and proposes many views on cultural norms, which somehow feel intuitively correct.
