Growth

New

Do We Really Want Development - - Full title: "Do We Really Want Development? Growth, the World’s Hard Drug". What has Global Development accomplished? Since 1960, the income ratio of the poorest to the richest 20% has gone from 1:30, to 1:80 (2004).

Growing Dissent about Growth - - A rising tide may "float all boats", but what if you don't have a boat?

The Growth Consensus Unravels - - Jonathan Rowe explains how our "Growth" culture actually makes life worse, in order to sell solutions that purport to make it better, like the transnational corporation that makes cancer-causing pesticides, and also makes the breast cancer drug tamoxifen.

World Economy Giving Less to Poorest in Spite of Global Poverty - - Recent research documents what you might expect if the promises of the benefits of growth seemed too good to be true: Globalization is hurting much more than it is helping everyone except, of course, the very rich. This article offers ways of redefining development to mean, not economic growth, but growth in human well-being.
