Understanding that the Power of a Nation depends on its capacity to work explains the gap between development and underdevelopment and its evolution.
And accepting that the archetype of a culture defines the level of work that is the standard in an environment sounds deterministic and for some people racist. Because it implies that every culture obtains what it produces; that underdevelopment is defined by the underdeveloped, development by the developed and emergent by the emerging.
Power can be measured in speed. That is why we say we can make a metaphor and measure the level of development in speed.
If developed cultures move at a speed of 100 km/hour, underdeveloped evolve more slowly.
That is why the gap between development and underdevelopment increases from day to day.
But emergent cultures are emergent because they move faster than the developed ones, which means that the gap between emergent cultures and developed cultures decreases from day to day, until the emergent cultures surpass the developed cultures.
The speed of cultures and individuals define their work and therefore their Power. By assessing the speed of work you will know what to expect.
