    The article discusses the shift in attitudes toward economic development in countries under colonialism to altered visions of modernization by the 1960's of the so-called "tropical" Asian countries. The failure of many Asian modernization efforts is traced to unrealistic expectations of governmental technologies and applied power to manage high birth, death, and disease rates, and the attempts to control them. In particular, the author concludes that both growing Asian urban centers and the borderlands between nations are least amenable to governmental economic intervention.
