Beyond Economic Growth: Meeting the Challenges of Global Development
Santrauka: This book seeks to help readers broaden their knowledge of global issues, gain insight into their country's state of affairs within a global context, and understand the problems of sustainable development both nationally as well as globally. It takes an interdisciplinary approach by attempting to describe and explain the complex relationships among the various aspects of development, including population and economic growth, improvements in health and education, urbanisation, and globalisation. Instead of offering simple solutions to complex issues, the authors encourage readers to find their own solutions by analysing and synthesising information on a range of development issues.
