INFERENCES BASED ON THE ABOVE TABLES

  • Gross inequality of incomes between the Rich and the Poor countries

  • Widening gap in the per capita income of Rich and Poor countries

  • during 1985-95

  • During the past few years, the income growth rate of the poor

  • countries has shown rising trends, which if sustained over a longer

  • period ; the gap between the Rich and the Poor will decrease

  • All high income countries are not necessarily developed countries, such

  • as, oil-exporting Gulf Countries

  • Their per capita incomes are high, but they do not fulfill other parameters

  • of a developed economy


Slide6 l.jpg

ESTABLISHMENT OF WTO TO FACILITATE FREE FLOW OF

TRADE IN GOODS AND SERVICES

  • The establishment is based on the belief that the World would be

  • richer and happier if we could ensure the movement of the

  • Following without any restrictions and hindrances:

  • - Goods and Services

  • Investment Flows

  • Technology Flows

  • Systems and processes Flows

  • People Flows

  • Any aberration or anomaly in the above movements is sought to be corrected

  • Through the good offices of the WTO.


Slide7 l.jpg

GLOBALIZATION CONCEIVED AS A WAY OUT TO BRIDGE THE

GAP BETWEEN THE RICH AND THE POOR COUNTRIES

THE CONCEPT AND THE SCOPE OF GLOBALIZATION

There are different connotations and ramifications of the much talked about term “Globalization”. But from the point of view of Economy, Business, Human Development, and Management, the term Globalization connotes the following four basic aspects:

  • More choices

  • Lower prices

  • Blurred national identity for products and services

  • Career choices and progression


Slide8 l.jpg

-Fifteen Years of consistent efforts on the part of

India in terms of Globalizing its Economy, It has

not been in a position to find a place among

the top 20 Globalized countries of the world.

  • The four important components of globalization

  • are

  • -ECONOMIC INTEGRATION

  • PERSONAL CONTACT

  • TECHNOLOGY

  • POLITICAL ENGAGEMENT


Slide9 l.jpg

ECONOMIC INTEGRATION: TRADE, FOREIGN DIRECT INVESTMENT

AND PORTFOLIO CAPITAL FLOWS, AND INCOME PAYMENTS AND RECEIPTS

(INCLUDING COMPENSATION OF NON RESIDENT EMPLOYESS AND INCOME

EARNED AND PAID ON ASSETS HELD ABROAD)

PERSONAL CONTACT: INTERNATIONAL TRAVEL AND TOURISM,

INTERNATIONAL TELEPHONE TRAFFIC, AND CROSS-BORDER TRANSFERS

TECHNOLOGY: NUMBER OF INTERNET USERS, INTERNET HOSTS,

AND SECURE SERVERS

POLITICAL ENGAGEMENT: NUMBER OF MEMBERSHIPS IN

INTERNATIONAL ORGANIZATIONS, U.N. COUNCIL MISSIONS IN WHICH EACH

COUNTRY PARTICIPATES, AND FOREIGN EMBASSIES THT EACH COUNTRY

HOSTS




Slide12 l.jpg

There is a common myth that Globalization benefits developed countries at the cost of under-developed countries. For instance, Japan figures at the 2nd largest economy of the world next to U.S.A., but in terms of

Globalization Index Rankings (G.I.R.), Japan is at No.38. Similarly, Germany, which is considered as the 3rd largest economy of the world, figures at No.14 in terms of G.I.R..

The more startling contrast is provided by China, which in the year 2005 emerged as the 4th largest economy of the world relegating U.K. to a lower position, figures at 53rd ranking of the Globalization Index. This is so because the G.I.R. are based on parameters, which are not exactly the same, which constitute the size of the economy.

LIMITATIONS OF ECONOMIC GROWTH APPROACH: 2003-04

PARADIGM SHIFT

IN TERMS OF HUMAN DEVELOPMENT

Policy makers assumed that effects of higher economic growth would trickle down to poor. Mahbub ul Haq challenged this conventional wisdom and asserted that there was no automatic

link between economic growth & human development.

Economic growth is necessary but not a sufficient condition for human progress. Governments need to actively focus on HD goals & direct & use their resources efficiently so that economic growth leads to empowerment of people & poverty alleviation.

Peoples’ needs & their aspirations must be at the centre of all development efforts, asserted Haq.


The birth of human development concept 1990 undp l.jpg
The Birth of Human Development 2003-04Concept (1990 – UNDP)

  • Basic assumptions under this concept

    • The true wealth of a country is its people.

    • There are not developed and underdeveloped countries, but developed and underdeveloped people.

    • The best strategy to increase national income is not to accumulate capital, but to develop people.

  • Exactly Defined as “Process of enlarging peoples choice”


Therefore l.jpg

Growth Advocates: 2003-04

Expanding income is an end in itself

Growth doestrickle down

Therefore

HD Advocates:

  • income is a means; enhancing people’s capabilities the end

  • Simultaneous expansion of choices in other dimensions – social, cultural, political - and economic

  • not accept trickle down as automatic


Is income enough for well being l.jpg
Is Income Enough for Well-being? 2003-04

  • Economic growth is needed, but public policy is needed to translate growth into HD. How?

    • 1. Emphasis on investment in health, education, skills of people

    • 2. More equitable distribution of assets and income

    • 3. Well structured public expenditures

    • 4. Empowerment of people to participate

  • Otherwise the growth is voiceless, rootless, ruthless, futureless, discriminating, etc.



Human development index hdi l.jpg
Human Development Index (HDI) 2003-04

  • Introduced in 1990, the HDI measures a

    country's achievements in three aspects of

    Human Development:

    • Longevity: measured by life expectancy at birth;

    • Knowledge: measured by a combination of the adult literacy rate (2/3) and the combined gross primary, secondary, and tertiary enrolment ratio (1/3);

    • Standard of living: measured by GDP per capita (Purchasing Power Parity of US$).  


Slide47 l.jpg

Construction of the HDI 2003-04

1 Fixed minimum and maximum values are established for each of these indicators:

1.) life expectancy at birth: 25 and 85 years;

2.) adult literacy rate (age 15 and above): 0% and 100%;

3.) combined gross enrollment ratio: 0% and 100%;

4.) GDP per capita (PPP$): $100 and $40,000 (PPPUS$).

2 For each component, individual indices are computed according to the general formula:

Index=(actual value – minimum value) / (maximum value – minimum value)

3 The Education Index is compiled as

2/3(adult literacy index) + 1/3(gross enrolment index)


Slide48 l.jpg

Construction of the HDI ( Contd) 2003-04

4. The GDP index is calculated using adjusted per capita (PPP$). In the HDI income serves as a surrogate for all the dimensions of human development not reflected in a long and healthy life and in knowledge.

Income is adjusted because achieving a respectable level of human development does not require unlimited income. Accordingly, the logarithm of the income is used.

5. The HDI is a simple average of the life expectancy index, educational attainment index and adjusted GDP per capita PPP US$ index, and is derived by dividing the sum of these three indices by 3.


Slide49 l.jpg

Uses of HDI: Focus on human 2003-04outcomes, not economic data

  • Comparisons within and between countries of the same level of development, as well as neighbors

  • If properly disaggregated, to monitor inequalities, recommend targeting, evaluate progress over time

  • To determine priorities for policy intervention

  • For lobbying policy makers who make budgetary allocations (needs to be understood and used by civil society)

  • To question national policy choices - how two countries with the same level of income per person can end up with such different HD outcomes.


Slide50 l.jpg

HDI trends in 2004 (2002) 2003-04

The top and the bottom of the Index remain unchanged from last year: Norway is on top and Sierra Leone is on the bottom

Top 5 countries: Norway (0.956), Sweden (0.946), Australia (0.946), Canada (0.943), Netherlands (0.942)
