Poverty, Growth and Welfare in the World Economy in the 21st Century

Francesco Carlucci and Feruccio Marzano

This book includes the main papers presented at an International Conference on North-South Relationships in the 21st Century World Economy held at L’Aquila in Italy (September 2000). The underlying idea of the Conference was the «humanisation of the economy» and was destined to the study of the huge problems of underemployment, famine, disease and inequality, which tragically characterise very large sections of the world population.
