Abstract

A pesar de los intentos de Naciones Unidas por conseguir una medida empírica y relativa del desarrollo humano, más allá de la simple consideración del progreso económico en términos de crecimiento y cambio estructural, el peso de la variable renta en la construcción del IDH es tan grande que este indicador sintético se hace cada vez más redundante, lo que es producto del carácter reduccionista de su medición. Se precisa, por tanto, una redefinición del IDH que ponga énfasis en la dimensión política que está en el origen de la definición misma de desarrollo humano.
