Blurb/Shorttext:
This book examines changes in culture, economics and politics in Taiwan. Ronald Inglehart suggests that culture, economics and politics are mutually connected and these dynamics shape each other over time. Richard Florida argues that the driving force behind the transformation of a society's lifestyles, worldview and values is the rise of human creativity. The purpose of this study is to measure and interpret the recent changes in Taiwan. Data collected from Taiwan is compiled in a unique database for analysis. This book discusses the findings from this analysis and interprets the direction of change brought by intergenerational change. In addition, a cross-cultural analysis between Sweden and Taiwan is performed using the latest data collected from the two countries. Results suggest that Taiwan's shift is in the direction of Postmodernity. In addition, younger people are found to be more tolerant against different groups of people compared to the older generation. The analysis should be useful to people who study the value change phenomena and people who are interested in political science and sociology.
