Do you have any sources for this? Superior answers are supported by research.

comment Why women in medieval India was topless?
I reject the notion that toplessness is related to development. I discourage questions that are based on something someone heard.

comment What were the effects of US foreign policy in the South East Asian region in the 1950s, 1960s and 1970s on states with capitalist economies?
I really like the first paragraph - this is a good way to rephrase a question so that it fits within H:SE. "Can we create a hypothesis/test/thought experiment which would allow us to distinguish between potential counterfactuals?" It isn't perfect, but it is better than I thought possible. This may not be the perfect test, and I may or may not agree with the conclusion, but I like the approach.

At the risk of extending a comments thread further, I want to acknowledge the effort that has gone into editing this question to make it fit. We sometimes forget that H:SE questions are a fairly narrow set of history questions.

This seems speculative. I'm skeptical that an answer can be crafted in less than book length.
