In this context, in the late s, modernisation theory was developed, which aimed to provide a specifically non-communist solution to poverty in the developing world — Its aim was to spread a specifically industrialised, capitalist model of development through the promotion of Western, democratic values. There are two main aspects of modernisation theory — 1 its explanation of why poor countries are underdeveloped, and 2 its proposed solution to underdevelopment. In order to develop, less developed countries basically needed to adopt a similar path to development to the West.

The US had emerged from the war as the strongest economy, enjoying rapid growth and capital accumulation and saw itself as leader of the emerging monetary and economic system in the capitalist world. A major early objective of the US was to assist Europe's recovery and lay the foundations of a new economic and political order, while containing the spread of communism in Western Europe.
