ABSTRACT
This article examines the relationship between nationalism and economic growth. The frequent socio-political upheavals in recent years fail to show any distinct political shift to the left or to the right. Nor do they reveal an easily recognizable connection with political rivalries among the big powers. Instead, they seem to manifest a fairly consistent pattern of internal discontent against intolerable social conditions and genuine frustrations resulting from too slow a climb up the economic ladder of progress and prosperity. Each coup, regardless of its outward appearance, represents essentially a desperate attempt to find new means of coping with the same stubborn, age-old problems. Brazil, Nigeria, Syria, Ghana and Indonesia in the first half of the 1960s present fascinating examples of political upheavals having essentially similar purposes, but apparently moving in quite different directions on the political spectrum. It is the contention of the author of the article that a country with good development potential, farsighted leadership, continuity in governing institutions, and a patient population willing to pay the full price of economic development.
