  • The objective of this paper is two-fold: (a) to corroborate Preston's cross-country macro-level findings with the micro-level evidence from the demographic and health surveys (DHS); and (b) to examine, at the within-country regional level, the impact that health improvements may have had on economic well-being. Two cases of empirical findings are presented: one using the DHS data for the states of India, and the other using DHS data for a group of four African countries: Ghana, Uganda, Kenya, and Zimbabwe. For India, the regional level joint evolution of longevity and wealth index produced the Preston curves that resemble the one conventionally produced using cross-country macro-level data. Also, we find positive and elastic impact of life expectancy on economic outcome. The findings ar...

  • In this study using standard measures of inequality such as Gini coefficient, Kakwani Index, coefficient of variation and Theil Index we examine inequality in carbon emissions for the years 2000-09 at the sub-national level covering 17 major states of India. At the outset, in order to estimate sub-national inequality in carbon emissions we also estimated total carbon emissions for each state for the above years using IPCC Reference Approach. Our findings showed that per capita carbon emissions were highest in the low income resource rich states and lower in the high income more developed states. The inequality in carbon emissions as demonstrated by Gini coefficients has increased over the years indicating that it is the poorer states which have to bear the burden.

  • The World Bank's 1997 plan for alleviating poverty in India focuses on labor-intensive growth, yet this is not the best strategy. Growth certainly helps reduce poverty, but poverty will increase if the poor are excluded from growth, thus perpetuating their poverty.

  • The objective of this paper is to understand and measure the contribution of various sectors towards the divergence of regional output in India in the era of liberalization. We have first described a framework that enables us to decompose the rate of divergence into the contribution made by various sectors. Next, we have used this framework to focus on the role of the agricultural, industrial and the services sectors of the Indian economy in bringing about changes in the level of regional inequality in the period following the liberalization of the economy. The results show that while the services and industrial sectors are largely responsible for the divergence during this period, the agricultural sector was offsetting some of the divergence.

  • In this article, the author addresses an emerging problem in a central area of contemporary freedom: reproductive autonomy. The possibility that reproductive freedom might be self-undermining arises from two demographic crises. In Europe and Northeast Asia, fertility rates have fallen well below the level needed to replace the existing population. Fertility rates are below replacement level where legal, economic, and social equality between the sexes and increasingly individualistic values induce people to choose careers and non-traditional intimate relationships over childrearing, and legal contraception and abortion enable them to enforce those choices. Evidence from both Europe and Asia suggests that one variable that increases fertility rates in highly developed societies and improv...
