Human Development Report 1990

This report is about people — and about how development enlarges their choices. It is about more than GNP growth, more than income and wealth and more than producing commodities and accumulating capital. A person's access to income may be one of the choices, but it is not the sum total of human endeavour. This report lays out a concrete priority agenda for better data collection that will enable the human development index to be used increasingly as a genuine measure of socioeconomic growth. It analyses the record of human development for the last three decades and the experience of 14 countries in managing economic growth and human development. It ends with a special focus on the problems of human development in an increasingly urban setting.

Hide / Show Abstract

We live in stirring times. An irresistible wave of human freedom is sweeping across many lands. Not only political systems but economic structures are beginning to change in countries where democratic forces had been long suppressed. People are beginning to take charge of their own destiny in these countries. Unnecessary state interventions are on the wane. These are all reminders of the triumph of the human spirit.
