Description

This is the eighteenth annual edition of the World Development Report, the standard reference for international economic data. The 1995 edition contains a special section on the importance of the market economy and labor policy in raising the living standard of workers around the world. A central message is that market-based development strategies are the best way to raise the living standards of all workers, including the poor. Chapters analyze the ways in which free trade, capital mobility, and international migration bring net gains to rich and poor countries alike, benefiting workers. It also discusses the goals of government policy toward labor and the ways in which reforms can effect a positive transition to a market economy. The unique data included in each annual edition have been fully updated.show more

Review quote

"An evergreen source of thematic material and the best single statistical compendium on low-income countries."--Bruce Herrick, Washington and Lee University"A useful statment of the international organization's view on policy in a particular area. It also provides a good synthesis of very current research....the World Development Report is likely to enhance interest in labour issues linked to globalization, and to inform policy."--Canadian Journal of Development StudiesPraise for the 1994 edition: "Excellent source of data, fine graphs, and each annual issue provides a superb analysis of one factor important for development."--Sanford D. Gordon, University of Florida"I assign the Report as reading to my undergraduate economic development class every year."--Alain de Janvry, University of California-Berkeleyshow more
