International Perspectives on the Human Factor in Economic Development

Synopsis

Focusing on the development agenda of selected developed and developing countries, the contributors in this volume show that the varying degrees of success or failure in the programs of different countries are due to the way they deal with human factor development. Each essay clearly shows that a nation cannot achieve development if it continuously fails to develop its own national human factor. The contributors maintain that what different parts of the world, particularly Southeast Asia, call a "development miracle" is not a miracle, but the result of integrated programs that focus on the development of the human factor.
