The Human's Development :: we ain't plastic Every year the UNPD (United Nations Development Programme) releases reliable reports consisting of statistical information on different aspects of human development. The so called Human Development Index mainly focus on three dimensions which describe the makings of a successful human development: a long and healthy life, knowledge and a decent standard of living. Each dimension is expressed by an index between zero and one and combines applicable and concrete facts for each country. Through this degree of abstraction we are able to compare the countries to each other in terms of human development. The figure on the right side describes the influences of each dimension on the development of humans by its weight.

Each year since 1990 the Human Development Report has published the Human Development Index (HDI) which was introduced as an alternative to conventional measures of national development. The HDI represents a broader definition of well-being and provides a composite measure of three basic dimensions of human development: health, education and income. The latest HDI report is from 2011 with emphasis on Sustainability and Equity, titled: A Better Future for All. The three Human Development Indicators are: 1.

A decade ago I lectured to the staff of the Ministry of Health in Cuba. After my talk the Minister happily said, this graphs showed that Cuba is the healthiest of the poor countries! On the way out a young staff member whispered in my ear: - He is wrong, Cuba is just the poorest of the healthy countries. CUBA – poorest of the healthy
Moshe Adler: Cuba by the Numbers Cuba by the Numbers Posted on Sep 29, 2010 By Moshe Adler Fidel Castro recently told The Atlantic that the Cuban model does not work anymore, not even for Cuba.

Cuba From the Other Side Posted on Apr 8, 2011 By Karen Lee Wald I first learned of Keith Bolender’s book “Voices From the Other Side: An Oral History of Terrorism Against Cuba” when the author reached out to me after reading an article I’d written on Luis Posada Carriles in The Rag blog. The article, “The Puppies That Got Away,” was based on an interview with a woman who almost became a victim, along with three children she was caring for, in one of the hotels Posada’s thugs bombed in 1997. The title came from the coded message used by one of Posada’s hired killers in an earlier bombing that destroyed a passenger plane in flight, killing all aboard.

Cuba Bumped from Human Development Index over Missing Data UNITED NATIONS, Jan 20, 2011 (IPS) - When the U.N. Development Programme (UNDP) formulates its annual Human Development Index (HDI), it uses several socioeconomic indicators - including life expectancy, gross national income and literacy - to rank member states and also measure quality of life in these countries. But a nation widely singled out for its positive achievements in education, health care and life expectancy has been left out of the index, complains Ambassador Pedro Nunez Mosquera, Cuba's permanent representative to the United Nations.
Human Development and Indicators - storify.com The origins of the HDI are found in the annual Human Development Reports of the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP). These were devised and launched by Pakistani Economist Mahbub ul Haq in 1990 and had the explicit purpose ‘‘to shift the focus of development economics from national income accounting to people centered policies’’. To produce the Human Development Reports, Mahbub ul Haq brought together a group of well-known development economists including: Paul Streeten, Frances Stewart, Gustav Ranis, Keith Griffin, Sudhir Anand and Meghnad Desai. But it was Nobel laureate Amartya Sen’s work on capabilities and functionings that provided the underlying conceptual framework.
