Rostow claimed to have established a general 'analytic' theory of economic growth. Thus he claimed to have provided an explanation which was relevant to all cases of the process. His theory has been much criticised, nevertheless it does provide some useful guidelines for those ·first approaching the topic. Rostow claims that economic growth, where successfully completed, goes through five basic stages: (I) the traditional stage; (2) the preconditions for 'take-off'; (3) the 'take-off'; (4) the drive towards maturity; (5) the age of high mass-consumption.

What was important was to look for 'signs' of a God-created cosmos behind the observable, to interpret rather than to act upon. 1t was a passive acceptance of that 'God-given' reality behind the material world, and to act upon the material world was at worst a heresy, an affront to the God-given order, and at best a futile occupation, since 'reality' was not amenable to man's manipulation. This was the view of thinking men in such a traditional society. Such views did not succeed in discouraging innovation but they did prevent 'innovation', through rational instrumental manipulation, dominating the social fabric.
