The article is devoted to interdisciplinary problems of modernization. Through the comparative historical analysis of economics of Arab countries of North Africa in the second half of the 20th century, an attempt is made to prove that intensification sets in as a result of the lack of potentials for an extensive economic strategy. Comparing the data about population size, availability and condition of land resources, hydrocarbon reserves and their significance for economy, as well as the results of the industrial production development in these countries, the author comes to the conclusion that resource constraints are a necessary factor for modernization.
