What do I mean by Development?

Definition of Development from Nationalencyklopedin:

”The term development differs from term change, which are more value-neutral: Development adopted most often come from a lower and more undifferentiated state to a higher, better and more differentiated.”

Before 1970s  development was supposed to be just an  economic problem with the primary focus on economic growth . But the dilemma was that high rates of economic growth was observed with  existence of mass poverty…

Even do has economic development a qualitative dimension, entails structural change and encompasses the reduction of poverty and widespread gains in nutrition health, education and standard of living.

But the objectives of Development is wider and should also improve life-sustaining goods, to raise levels of living, to expand the range of economic and social choices.

I would say  that human development is about expanding the choices people have to live a full and free life!

That includes aspects and issues like:

  • Political freedom participation
  • Security
  • Cultural and religious freedom
  • Health
  • Education

= Overall the standard of living!
