Development as freedom

Freedom, Sen argues, is both the end and most effective means of sustaining economic life and the key to securing the general welfare of the world's entire population. Releasing the idea of individual freedom from association with any particular historical, intellectual, political, or religious tradition, Sen clearly demonstrates its current applicability and possibilities. In the new global economy, where, despite unprecedented increases in overall opulence, the contemporary world denies elementary freedoms to vast numbers--perhaps even the majority of people--he concludes, it is still possible to practically and optimistically retain a sense of social accountability.

  • ""Telle est la question cruciale que pose cet ouvrage, qui renoue avec le style et l'ambition des grandes oeuvres économiques des siècles passés. Amartya Sen a reçu en 1998 le prix Nobel d'économie pour ses recherches novatrices, mais aussi parce qu'il a su redonner une dimension éthique aux débats qui font rage autour des grands problèmes économiques d'aujourd'hui. Voici, pour la première fois accessible à tous, une brillante synthèse de ses idées les plus fortes. "Les pauvres du monde entier n'ont pas de porte-parole plus inspiré et plus convaincant parmi les économistes. Notre qualité de vie ne se mesure pas à notre richesse, mais à notre liberté : cette idée révolutionne la théorie et la pratique économique." Kofi Annan, Secrétaire général de l'ONU."--Page 4 of cover."

  • "Das große Buch des Nobelpreisträgers: Eine Programmschrift, die ökonomische Vernunft, politischen Realismus und soziale Verantwortung zusammenführt. Mit diesem Buch hat Sen eine Schneise in die Globalisierungsdebatte geschlagen. Als einer der bedeutenden Wirtschaftstheoretiker der Gegenwart fordert er die Moral in der Marktwirtschaft ein und packt das Weltproblem Nr. 1 an: die sich immer weiter öffnende Schere zwischen dem global agierenden Turbokapitalismus und der zunehmenden Arbeitslosigkeit und Verarmung. Dieses engagierte Buch hat er für die breite Öffentlichkeit geschrieben, eindringlich stellt er dar, daß Freiheit, Gleichheit und Solidarität keine abstrakten Ideale sind, sondern fundamentale Voraussetzungen für eine prosperierende, gerechte Weltwirtschaft."
