The right development

This thought came to my mind today morning while riding to work. As countries like India, China and some African countries (in the future) start to develop, will they make the same mistakes that the currently developed countries made during their development. Will these countries and their future generation reinvent the wheel?

I am speaking in terms of the environment. Will they use clean technologies or rather use old non environmentally friendly ones? Will these countries learn from other's mistakes. Will hybrid cars be a norm in these countries? Will they generate less non-biodegradable waste? Will they generate energy using clean sources?

Who is responsible to see that these mistakes are not repeated? The Government, the people or the entrepreneurs?

I wonder...ah?
