Description

Characterized by shrinking time, shrinking space and disappearing borders, globalization offers unique opportunities for human progress. But these opportunities are not evenly distributed among people and nations. Furthermore, globalization squeezes a number of activities falling outside of the market. "Human Development Report 1999" offers analysis of the economic, social, and political outcomes of this present era of globalization, with a spotlight on the fiscal squeeze on social spending, the time squeeze on caring activities, and the incentives squeeze on the environment. It also offers recommendations for stronger governance - at the local, national, regional, and global levels - to make globalization work for people, not just for profits.show more
