As development seems to been an ascription of the Western world, that it look like Westernisation in all its forms- became the rule of thumb for a long time. That and its value reduced to economics, oriented people to relate it to just financial and economically beneficial policymaking. With the emergence of development ethics, a new light has been dawned on issues that surround development. How do the benefits of growth level against the cost of it? Further, why and how must these costs and risks be distributed evenly among all stakeholders? Are the by-products of this development derived from nature more valuable than nature itself? Such questions are posed and answered by means of amalgamating political, economical, philosophical expertise. 
First and foremost, how do we define development? The fact that development has been defined in more ways than one is witness to the differences that set one nation apart from another. That is, development means different things to different people. A stage upwards in the direction of betterment from wherever you are standing, is development to you. Which shows that development is not always monetary or material. To a voiceless women in Saudi Arabia- being allowed to drive (in the 21st century), is development. In his paper on “A New Discipline: Development Ethic”, Denis Goulet talks about how many practical thinkers consider development to be a “modern way of doing things”. He suggests this basically points towards increase in urban settlements and thus equating development with urbanisation. He goes on to explain how since wealth creation is mostly technologically oriented, industrialisation comes into the picture. These culminate in efforts to mimic Westernisation as a whole, as we saw in the preface of this paper. 
It is understandable how this attempt to recreate the West in the Third-World countries, leads to a loss of the country’s own identity. When emphasis is put on imitating another society’s economic, social, political behaviour, in hopes of also achieving their accomplishments – what makes a country a nation of its own, is sidelined. Almost like a child who is taught to follow instructions in an art class and as a result goes astray from what distinguished their persona. And like this child, of whom an underdeveloped/ developing country can be seen as a macrocosm- it can never completely be of  the West or of itself. This issue has been discussed by Goulet in the aforementioned paper, where he introduces ‘self-reliance’ as a solution to break this pattern and allow a nation to sketch plans in accordance with their principles as one populace. He says, “Above all else development is a question of values, human attitudes and preferences, self-defined goals, and criteria for determining what are tolerable costs to be borne in the course of change.”

Des Gasper in “Development ethics – Why? What? How? A formulation of the field”, asks an important question- what is the risk-taking for? It is maybe a side-effect of development, that for it to take place, as a leverage, displacement occurs in one way or another. Whether it is displacing a community for construction of infrastructure or employees being laid-off as a result of a lucrative merger. But to improve one’s current position and to bring about profitable change, a change from a previously sheltered position. This posits risks. And what we need to stop and examine is whether what is being given up is worth being lost should things go awry. So is seeking well-off nations to allow refugees to seek asylum in their territory, and disrupt the life of their own citizens worth displacing refugees from their war-torn homeland for their safety? This is a question that cannot be answered unless one understands that no development can rightly be called so unless it accounts for its objectives in an ethically acceptable and justifiable manner. How to answer the question that does the progress of one necessarily have to imply the regress of another? This is where development ethics steps in.
Gasper also questions how important a role is played by possession of material goods in the attainment and upkeep of the ‘good life’. Good, in the sense of being meaningful not only socially or professionally but also mentally or emotionally- something that can only be determined by the value individuals place on material goods – a subjective experience of the objectified world.

As envisaged rerouting technical intelligence and monetary aids to poor and newly independent Third World nations to trigger development was not enough- what they needed was for their own people to wake up and usher in the era of social, political and economical change.
