Urbanization and growth by Michael Spence( )

14 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 785 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Why is productivity higher in cities? Does urbanization cause growth or does growth cause urbanization? Do countries achieve rapid growth or high incomes without urbanization? How can policy makers reap the benefits of urbanization without paying too high a cost? Does supporting urbanization imply neglecting rural areas? Why do so few governments welcome urbanization? What should governments do to improve housing conditions in cities as they urbanize? Are innovations in housing finance a blessing or a curse for developing countries? How will governments finance the trillions of dollars of infrastructure spending needed for cities in developing countries? First in a series of thematic volumes, this book was prepared for the Commission on Growth and Development to evaluate the state of knowledge of the relationship between urbanization and economic growth. It does not pretend to provide all the answers, but it does identify insights and policy levers to help countries make urbanization work as part of a national growth strategy. Written by prominent academics in their fields, Urbanization and Growth seeks to create a better understanding of the role of urbanization in growth and to inform policy makers tackling the formidable challenges it poses

The book reviews Nigeria's growth performance and its impact on the labor market and proposes a growth strategy aimed at further accelerating growth and enhancing the growth elasticity of employment.

Successful interventions in these value chains need to be designed based
Health and growth by Michael Spence( )

19 editions published between 2009 and 2012 in English and held by 731 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The commission on growth and development was established in April 2006. It felt that the benefits of growth were not fully appreciated, but also recognized that the causes of growth were not fully understood. Growth is often overlooked and underrated as an instrument for tackling the world's most pressing problems, such as poverty, illiteracy, income inequality, unemployment, and pollution. At the same time, grasp of the sources of growth in developing countries is less definitive than commonly thought even though advice is sometimes given to policy makers in these countries with great confidence, perhaps greater than the state of knowledge will justify. Consequently, the commission's mandate is to 'take stock of the state of theoretical and empirical knowledge on economic growth with a view to drawing implications for policy for the current and next generation of policy makers. Good health improves the capacity to learn and work, which dramatically improves income and welfare at the household level even if the effects at the aggregate level may be harder to discern. The methodological problems in capturing these gains deserve attention and further work. More attention also needs to be paid to upgrading healthcare institutions, as more of the same is neither affordable nor desirable
Equity and growth in a globalizing world by Michael Spence( )

17 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 708 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book is a compilation of a series of "state of the art" papers on topics related to equity and growth. As inputs to its final report (The Growth Report), the Commission on Growth and Development took stock of the current state of knowledge and understanding of various sectors/issues that have an impact on economic growth, including equity, education, health, leadership and others. The following questions are discussed in the book: - What has been the evolution of poverty and equity during the recent globalizing decades? - How have poor countries fared on the Millennium Development Goals? - What role does wealth inequality play in the level and efficiency of investment and hence in economic growth? - Is gender equity a smart pro-growth strategy as well as a pro-poor one? - How is equality different from equality of opportunity, and should policy makers pursue, one or the other, or both? - In formulating distributional strategies, should the middle class be integrally considered, or should the focus be entirely on the poorest of the poor? - What are the precise impacts of globalization on poverty and equity, and what are the policy implications of these impacts? - Is the problem with globalization that a key element if missing-the globalization of labor employment? - What is the role of international migration in the evolution of equity within and between nations?
