Time use: the missing piece of economic development studies
The concern of this paper is to highlight time use as a valuable resource and important factor in the development process of Less Developed Countries. It propounds time use,that is neglected in Development studies, as an important factor in human development index. The role of time management as a crucial element in providing and developing the effective human skills in LDCs will be studied. Learning organizations are recommended to direct social attitudes change toward time management. Traditional way of living and weak socio-economic infrastructures, which result in time-waste society, will be discussed as obstacles to change in LDCs.
