Handbook of development economics by T. Paul Schultz( Book )

39 editions published between 1988 and 2007 in English and Dutch and held by 812 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

For this Handbook authors known to have different views regarding the nature of development economics have been selected. The Handbook is organised around the implications of different sets of assumptions and their associated research programs. It is divided into three volumes, each with three parts which focus on the broad processes of development. In Volume 2 the emphasis shifts towards policy issues. Techniques of resource allocation and policy planning at both macro and micro levels are discussed in the first part of this volume. The changing international economy within which national development takes place is an important aspect and this is dealt with in the middle section of the book. The role of the state is at least as important in the early stages of development as it is later on, and included in the last section of the Handbook is a comparison of the experience of countries pursuing different development strategies and draws lessons for policy.

The social benefits of education( Book )

15 editions published between 1996 and 2010 in English and held by 400 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Those papers, revised and updated, are collected here. Kenneth J. Arrow provides perspective on education and preference formation, and Jere R. Behrman considers general conceptual ad measurement issues in assessing the social benefits of education and policies related to education. These issues are taken up by experts in four fields - health, parenting, the environment, and crime. The introduction and conclusion provide an overview, discuss directions for future studies, and address three common themes: measurement issues regarding what we mean by education and its benefits; basic analytical issues in assessing the impact of education on these social benefits using behavioral data; and whether the social benefits of education justify public policy interventions

From parent to child : intrahousehold allocations and intergenerational relations in the United States by Jere Richard Behrman( Book )

6 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 304 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

How do parents allocate human capital among their children? To what extent do parental decisions about resource allocation determine children's eventual economic success? The analyses in From Parent to Child explore these questions by developing and testing a model in which the earnings of children with different genetic endowments respond differently to investments in their human capital. Behrman, Pollak, and Taubman use this model to investigate issues such as parental bias in resource allocations based on gender or birth order, the extent of intergenerational mobility in income, earnings, and schooling in the United States, the relative importance of environmental and genetic factors in determining variations in schooling; and whether parents' distributions offset the intended effects of government programs designed to subsidize children

7 editions published between 1998 and 2013 in English and held by 145 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Causes, Correlates, and Consequences of Death Among Older Adults considers an integrated approach to investigating determinants of and correlates of mortality in the United States - integrating modeling, micro data, and modern econometric techniques. A number of examples of applications are included, with some explorations of the robustness of the results under alternative assumptions. The basic purpose of this text is to increase our knowledge of mortality and to illustrate how such an integrated approach can further our knowledge of mortality and related phenomena
Towards a better global economy : policy implications for citizens worldwide in the twenty-first century by Franklin Allen( Book )

3 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 126 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book examines the factors that are most likely to facilitate the process of beneficial economic growth in low-, middle-, and high-income countries. It examines past, present, and future economic growth; demographic changes; the hyperglobalization of trade; the effect of finance on growth; climate change and resource depletion; and the sense of global citizenship and the need for global governance in order to draw longer-term implications, identify policy options for improving the lives of average citizens around the world, and make the case for the need to confront new challenges with truly global policy responses. The book documents how demographic changes, convergence, and competition are likely to bring about massive shifts in the sectoral and geographical composition of global output and employment, as the center of gravity of the global economy moves toward Asia and emerging economies elsewhere. It shows that the legacies of the 2008-09 crisis--high unemployment levels, massive excess capacities, and high debt levels--are likely to reduce the standard of living of millions of people in many countries over a long period of adjustment and that fluctuations in international trade, financial markets, and commodity prices, as well as the tendency of institutions at both the national and international level to favor the interests of the better-off and more powerful pose substantial risks for citizens of all countries."--Publisher description
Handbook of development economics by Hollis Burnley Chenery( Book )

31 editions published between 1988 and 2007 in English and Undetermined and held by 95 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This third volume of the Handbook of Development Economics employs rigorous theoretical and empirical frameworks. It focuses on policy and includes material from unpublished and not generally available sources. In particular, it covers analytical and policy issues arising from the collapse of the paradigm of development based on import-substituting-industrialization in most developing countries; and the demise of centrally planned economies of Eastern Europe and the Soviet Union. The volume also deals with the increasing recognition of the importance of micro behavioral responses to a range of incentives and unobserved factors both for analysis and for policy formulation. It discusses the ongoing process of economic reforms in developing countries by reducing state involvement in the economy through privatization, opening up the economy much more to foreign trade and investment and allowing market forces and the private sector to guide resource allocation to a much greater extent. As well as updating developments on topics which were included in the earlier volumes, this Handbook also includes different topics, such as econometric and other empirical modeling tools for development analysis and the role of technology in the development process. As in the previous volumes of the series, the chapters in this Handbook provide self-contained surveys summarizing not only received knowledge but also recent developments. Each chapter is also a definitive source, reference and teaching supplement for use by researchers and advanced graduate students
The right skills for the job? : rethinking training policies for workers( Book )

5 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Creating jobs and increasing productivity are at the top of agenda for policymakers across the world. Knowledge accumulation and skills are recognized as central in this process. More-educated workers not only have better employment opportunities, earn more, and have more stable and rewarding jobs, but also they are more adaptable and mobile. Workers who acquire more skills also make other workers and capital more productive and, within the firm, they facilitate the adaptation, adoption, and ultimately invention of new technologies. This is crucial to enable economic diversification, productiv
