Vietnam today is on the brink of entering the "global economy." The value structures and both economic and political policies necessary to participate in the global economy vary considerably from those of traditional Vietnam. This IQP examines 1) traditional Vietnamese economic and social values and organization, 2) the impact of French Colonial rule and the wars of liberation, and 3) the current government policies that reflect the changes in traditional Vietnamese culture, but make possible participation in the global export-based economy.
