AbstractIn this note, we firstly discuss Chakravarty (2003) axiomatic foundation of the Generalized Human Development Index (GHDI) then we pro- pose a different set of axioms through which a class of Foster-Shorrocks-like Human Development Measures phases out. As we will argue, this class better deals with some recent philosofical advancements of the Capability Approach.
