This examination of how basic social services, particularly education, health and water, can be financed and delivered more effectively departs from the dominant macro-economic paradigm. Drawing on their own broad-ranging research at UNICEF and UNDP, the authors argue that fiscal, monetary, and other macro-economic policies for poverty reduction, human development and economic growth can be compatible with micro-level interventions to provide basic social services. Policymakers have more flexibility than is usually assumed to engage in macro-economic and growth-oriented policies that can also expand human capabilities and fulfill human rights. More than just more aid is needed. Strategic shifts in aid policy, decentralized governance, health and education and the private-public mix in service provision are a prerequisite to achieve the goals of human development and to eliminate human poverty within a generation.

Enrique Delamonica is a policy analyst in the Division of Policy and Planning, UNICEF

Review:

"This book is the blueprint for eradicating world poverty in the 21st century. It is based on a sound grasp of political economy and social thery combined with a meticulous comparative analysis of high and low achieving countries. Mehrotra and Delamonica demonstrate that by integrating economic policy with public investment in health, education and utilities combined with pro-poor redistributive policies, developing countries with the support of richer countries can succeed in meeting human needs and enhancing human capabilities. Forget Stiglitz, move on from Sachs. This book based on over a decade of committed work in UNDP and UNICEF marks the real turning point away from neoliberalism in the global discourse about economic and social policy."--Bob Deacon, Professor of International Social Policy, Director of the Globalism and Social Policy Programme, University of Sheffield.

Book Description ZED BOOKS LTD, United Kingdom, 2007. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English. Brand new Book. This book focuses on the provision of basic social services - in particular, access to education, health and water supplies - as the central building blocks of any human development strategy. The authors concentrate on how these basic social services can be financed and delivered more effectively to achieve the internationally agreed Millennium Development Goals.Their analysis, which departs from the dominant macro-economic paradigm, deploys the results of broad-ranging research they led at UNICEF and UNDP, investigating the record on basic social services of some 30 developing countries. In seeking to learn from these new data, they develop an analytical argument around two potential synergies: at the macro level, between poverty reduction, human development and economic growth, and at the micro level, between interventions to provide basic social services. Policymakers, they argue, can integrate macro-economic and social policy. Fiscal, monetary, and other macro-economic policies can be compatible with social sector requirements. They make the case that policymakers have more flexibility than is usually presented by orthodox writers and international financial institutions, and that if policymakers engaged in alternative macro-economic and growth-oriented policies, this could lead to the expansion of human capabilities and the fulfillment of human rights. This book explores some of these policy options.The book also argues that more than just additional aid is needed. Specific strategic shifts in the areas of aid policy, decentralized governance, health and education policy and the private-public mix in service provision are a prerequisite to achieve the goals of human development. The combination of governance reforms and fiscal and macro-economic policies outlined in this book can eliminate human poverty in the span of a generation. Seller Inventory # AAR9781842777732
