Lack of desire to improve the standard of living, or inertia in the face of economic problems, may occur on a personal, group, or national level. On a personal level it may result in a low standard of living, lack of self-confidence and material insecurity. On a group level it tends to sharpen intergroup divisions along the lines of class. On a national level it may lead to economic stagnation and foreign intervention.
