Jeg skal lige have samlet op på Lawrence E. Harrison og de link, jeg har fundet runt omkring. Så derfor kommer de i en post her:
Lawrence Harrison talked about his book, The Central Liberal Truth: How Politics Can Change a Culture and Save It from Itself, published by Oxford University Press. He presented his ideas on using cultural forces such as religion, politics and education to help poor nations, and poor people in rich countries, make progress. After a three-year research project exploring the cultures and values of dozens of different countries, Mr. Harrison offered his opinions on how each country’s culture has helped or hurt its development. The event was moderated by Alexander Shakow. After his presentation Mr. Harrison responded to audience members’ questions. Lawrence Harrison is a research fellow at Tufts University. In the early 1980s he worked for the U.S. Agency for International Development in Latin America and the Caribbean.
Books of Our Time host, Lawrence Velvel and Cultures Matters co-author Lawrence Harrison discuss the book’s theme that culture affects dramatically the economic progress and standing of a nation/people. What cultural aspects lead to enhanced economic prosperity or detract from it? Is there sufficient evidence to back up such claims?

The Social Contract – Immigrants and Culture
Immigrants to the U.S. generally represent two different value systems
by Lawrence E. Harrison
Much of the national debate on immigration bulks all immigrants together, often as “legal” or “illegal.” But the fact is that there are wide variations in the economic and political performance of immigrants, and these variations frequently reflect differences in cultural values and attitudes.
