Sažetak
This paper is based on a cross-cultural research study
comparing the Protestant work ethic (PWE) values
of three groups of university students from post-
-industrialized Australia, newly industrialized Turkey and
relatively under-developed pre-industrial Kyrgyzstan. The
outcomes of this research indicate that PWE endorsement is
higher in less developed countries such as Kyrgyzstan
followed by relatively developed countries like Turkey and
then post-industrial Australia. Additionally, this research
shows that the influence of leisure oriented-hedonist culture
increases in highly developed societies like Australia.
At the same time the PWE is increasingly evident in
developing countries like Turkey and especially Kyrgyzstan
through an extension of modern/industrial civilization as a
form of moral justification for their current social-economic
conditions.
