    balanced growth is when all sectors of the economy grow at a similar rate. some economists say this should be encouraged so that markets are created for the goods produced.

    unbalanced growth theory - that ldc's should focus on certain industries and aim to get these growing , which will stimulate further growth in the rest of the economy

    balanced is when every sector grows at the same rate , so agricultural,manafacturing, tourism,

    unbalanced is when 1 sector is growing faster then everything else so in china textiles is growing faster then anything else at the moment so that is unbalanced growth

    in reality mois tis unbalanced but some governments encourage some sectors more then others with subsidies e.t.c think tiger economies and how the promted manafactured goods

    intermediate technology( also called appropriate technology) as belonging between the capital-intensive advanced technologies of the ‘West’, driven by large scale production and profit, and the traditional subsistence technologies of developing countries.

    yes i did nick most of that from some site. but it seemed pretty good.

    basically approriate technology is somehting that is appropriate to the people that are using it ( not giving a tractor to a famrer that cant afford the petrol), it can be knowledge as well . so rotating fields with crops could be seen as appropriate technology.
