Abstract: This paper proposes a development model for developing countries that is based on communication in the form of language and ideology. This model is flexible enough to be adaptable to countries' needs and to different ideologies. The model is inspired by the Buddhist concept of conditioned causality, which is based on the notions of multiconditionality, reciprocal causality and circular causality. This overriding concept is then applied to the first stage of a model for development. The author takes an interdisciplinary approach in proposing that development refer, in addition to economic, to human progress in the form of closing the social and value gaps. This is the first stage of a development paradigm which integrates human values and nations' particular nationalistic goals using communication.
