Reflections on Human Development (repost)

Reflections on Human Development
ISBN: 0195101936 | edition 288 | PDF | 1995 pages | 11,7 mb

This work explores a new development paradigm whose central focus is on human well-being. Increase in income is treated as an essential means, but not as the end of development, and certainly not as the sum of human life. Development policies and strategies are discussed which link economic growth with human lives in various societies. The book also analyzes the evolution of a new Human Development Index which is a far more comprehensive measure of socio-economic progress of nations than the traditional measure of Gross National Product. For the first time, a Political Freedom Index is also presented.

Fifty Years of Change on the U.S.-Mexico Border: Growth, Development, and Quality of Life

Fifty Years of Change on the U.S.-Mexico Border: Growth, Development, and Quality of Life by Joan B. Anderson, James Gerber
Publisher: University of Texas Press | Number Of Pages: 304 | Publication Date: 2007-12-15 | ISBN-10: 0292717199 | PDF | 5 Mb

The U.S. and Mexican border regions have experienced rapid demographic and economic growth over the last fifty years. In this analysis, Joan Anderson and James Gerber offer a new perspective on the changes and tensions pulling at the border from both sides through a discussion of cross-border economic issues and thorough analytical research that examines not only the dramatic demographic and economic growth of the region, but also shifts in living standards, the changing political climate, and environmental pressures, as well as how these affect the lives of people in the border region.
Creating what they term a Border Human Development Index, the authors rank the quality of life for every U.S. county and Mexican municipio that touches the 2,000-mile border. Using data from six U.S. and Mexican censuses, the book adeptly illustrates disparities in various aspects of economic development between the two countries over the last six decades.
