About the product

This report starts with a short historical background, which describes the ascendancy of macroeconomic policies over social development policies. It continues with an evaluation of the relation between macroeconomic consistency and social effort, and the importance of sustainable growth for social progress. Next it turns to the need for an equity-enhancing growth strategy and an analysis of the priorities of social policies in an integrated approach to growth. The final chapter adds some financial institutional remarks.
