Economic Growth and Human Development

  • Ranis, G.
  • Ramirez, A.
  • Stewart, F.

This paper explores thelinks between economic growth and human development, identifying two chains, one from economic growth to human development, the other, from human development to economic growth. The importance of various links in each chain are explored empirically with the help of cross-country statistics for the period 1970-92. Public expenditures on health and education, notably female, represent especially important links determining the strength of the relationship between economic growth and human development.
