Rostow’s growth phase model is one of the most influential development theories of the twentieth century. However, it is also based on his historical and political background. The “stage of economic growth” was published in 1960. At the peak of the Cold War, the subtitle was “Non-Communist Manifesto”, which was clearly political. Rostow strongly opposes the republic and the right; he models his own theory behind Western capitalist countries that have industrialized and urbanized. As a staff member during President John F. Kennedy’s administration, Rostow advertised his development model as part of US foreign policy. Rostow’s model shows that they not only want to help low-income countries participate in the development process, but also insist on the influence of the United States on communist Russia. The industrialization, urbanization and trade of the Rostow model are still seen by many as a road map for national development. Singapore is one of the best examples of a country that has grown in this way and is now a noteworthy participant in the global economy. Singapore is a Southeast Asian country with a population of more than five million. When it became independent in 1965, it did not seem to have any special growth prospects. However, it was early industrialized, developing profitable manufacturing and high-tech industries. Singapore is now highly urbanized and 100% of the population is considered “urbanized”. It is one of the most popular trading partners in the international market and has a higher per capita income than many European countries.
