Description

Human Development Report 2001 addresses the opportunities and challenges for development of the technology revolution. It examines some of today's most controversial policy issues in this area, including: When do the benefits of genetically-modified foods outweigh the risks? How can the current intellectual property rights regime be made fairer for the least developed countries? Can information economies help large numbers of poor people to lift themselves out of poverty? What is the best and most cost-effective way to encourage the production of vaccines for diseases such as malaria and tuberculosis? and How should developing countries respond to the "brain drain" created by the emigration of their highly-educated workers?.show more
