  • Population Policies and Economic Development

  • This is a World Bank staff report with an introduction by Robert S. McNamara, the Bank’s President. Originally prepared for use within the World Bank, the report is a distillation of authoritative information on the “population problem.”

  • English only. 214 pp., $10 cloth, $3.50 paper.

  • Nigeria: Options for Long-Term Development

  • Although the Nigerian study has in some respects been overtaken by rapid changes in oil prices and in the world economy, and by the effects of drought in the Nigerian north, its view is broad enough to point strategically to the opportunities and challenges which Nigeria faces in the next 10-15 years. It puts into perspective the exceptional problems of a populous country suffering from inflation, high unemployment, and a disturbing rate of urban growth, but which can turn to rich oil resources to help finance immediate and longer-term development.

  • English only. 256 pp., $12 cloth, $6 paper.

  • Attacking Rural Poverty: How Nonformal Education Can Help

  • This study was commissioned by the World Bank and carried out during 1972/73 by the International Council for Educational Development (ICED), whose staff members and consultants studied 25 nonformal education programs in 15 developing countries. The report’s main authors are Philip H. Coombs, Vice-Chairman of ICED, and Manzoor Ahmed, an associate director.

  • English only. 292 pp., $15 cloth, $3.95 paper.

  • Compounding and Discounting Tables for Project Evaluation

  • This book was prepared in consultation with Bank staff in response to the need of the Bank’s Economic Development Institute for easily comprehended tables for teaching purposes. Edited by J. Price Gittinger, it will be useful to those in other organizations who teach project analysis, and to economists and noneconomists who will find it convenient in preparing development projects.

  • English only. 143 pp., $5 paper.

An important new study by the World Bank’s Development Research right and the Institute of Development Studies at the University of Sussex

Many developing countries have achieved high rates of economic growth during the past decade, but this has often brought little benefit to the poor. Although the average per capita income of the Third World has increased by 50 per cent since 1960, the realization that large segments of the population have not shared in this growth has focused attention on the need to incorporate distributional objectives into development strategies. This book grew out of discussions among members of the Institute of Development Studies at Sussex University and the Development Research right of the World Bank. The authors are convinced that nothing short of a major reorientation of policies in the developing countries is required, and this is the theme of their study.

PART I begins with an empirical diagnosis of the dimensions of poverty, and then sets out the economic and political framework within which they should be examined. These introductory statements are followed by discussions of the policy instruments available to governments, the different strategies needed to reach the various rural and urban poverty groups, and the implications of this analysis for international policies. PART II surveys, at a more technical level, various existing planning models and suggests new forms of analysis of asset distribution and accumulation patterns to examine the ways in which the income of different groups grows over time. The statistical requirements for effective planning along these lines are discussed and some promising lines of research are suggested.

The alleviation of poverty calls for a major—and politically demanding—shift in development priorities, away from an exclusive concern with aggregate GNP growth and toward increasing the income-earning capacity of the poor. The purpose of this book is to encourage a systematic approach to these issues in formulating development policies.
