Indie and Everything in Between economical and medical development as well as working in the development aid fiel. Conomic growth in India and China has improved the lives ofthan a billion people Deaton argues that international aid has been ineffective andven harmful He suggests alternative The Day Christ Was Born efforts including reforming incentives to drug companies and lifting trade restrictions that will allow the developing world to bring about its own greatscape  Demonstrating how changes in health and living standards have transformed our lives The Great Escape is a powerful guide to addressing the well being of all natio. Very highly recommended An illuminating discussion While densely argued the book is always accessible and yet unlike many others does not patronise the reader Reading it I found myself uestioning much of the way the world is generally portrayed The penultimate chapter alone which discusses how to help those left behind makes the book worth acuiring The Independent People by Halldor Laxness reminds me of the hard work it took just to survive and how leisure which subseuently sponsors the whole leisure and 5 Nights: Sinful Delights Boxed Set entertainment industry is a relatively recent phenomenon Leisure was a luxury that our ancestors throughout most of our human history did notnjoy if one was lucky The Seventh Witch enough to pass over the threshold of child mortality The Great Escape tells how we havescaped the dreary of life and the tyranny of nature It is refreshing to be reminded that our life has not always been and that nothing can guarantee progress can run forever In fact the headway that we have made may be reversed as the threats to our lifestyle are And the Miss Ran Away with the Rake encroachingWhileconomists can go into the details of a specific topic and get technical ultimately I believe the driving force behind their Trickle Down Tyranny: Crushing Obama's Dream of the Socialist States of America effort is their concern and interest in the well being of the human race In this book Deaton steps back and takes a panoramic view over time and across countries on how well we have done in raising the overall well being of people tracing our path to today taking stock of what we have achieved painting where we are today and looking ahead where we are heading Human well being is multi faceted and material well being the subject matter ofconomics should not be uated as human well being Deaton acknowledges this fact but limits himself to talk about health and wealth in this bookWe can t see progress or the issues without some forms of measurement Unfortunately we live in an imperfect world and perfect information is a luxury that we don t have Inevitably Deaton has to take us through some of the notorious measurement issues in order to interpret properly the pictures that the imperfect statistics are painting The reality is that we do not understand the issues on solid data because they don t xist Understanding the limitations of the available data and measurement issues is part and parcel of trying to understand the issues at hand Deaton has done a marvellous job in making those technical problems accessibleIt is an interesting concept that ineuality is a by product of human progress which segregates the winners from those who are left behind As human society is propelled forward by different forces at different times The Color of Our Sky each round we have different winners and different groups of people who are left behind Are ineualities a necessaryvil of the market conomy which operates on differentials Why should we be concerned about ineualities 1 The activities to protect vested interests can block progress and the scape route of those left behind 2 Obsession euality of opportunity anduality of outcome unfortunately are correlated and 3 wide ineualities tend to undermine the functioning a democracyThe discussion on health identifies what really make a significant difference in prolonging the life of the majority and some of the common preconceptions Public health is the key which reuires the work of public institutions directed by the advancement in knowledge specially the germ theory Today the poor countries and the rich countries face different health issues A lot of the solutions to the health issues faced by the former are already known It begs the uestion why they are not adopted This points to institutional failures and political paralysis of the poorest countries in the world On the other hand the health Professionals In The Rich in the rich face different challenges The focus has been shifted from lowering the mortality rate to improving on morbidity as the population agesDeaton is very blunt on aid and critical about the ffort of the rich countries in assisting the poor countries We may naturally start by asking what should we do He responds by saying that this is the wrong uestion to ask For various reasons he argues strongly and passionately that foreign aid has not be ffective worse it does harm than good ven if it comes with good intention It is ye opening that the aid workers on the ground faced with the pressure to discharge aid focus their ffort in damage control His conclusion is categorical Large scale aid does not work because it cannot work and attempts to reform The world is a better place than it used to be People are healthier wealthier and live longer Yet the All Roads Lead Home escapes from destitution by so many has left gaping ineualities between people and nations  In The Great Escape Angus Deaton one of the foremostxperts on conomic development and on poverty tells the remarkable story of how beginning 250 years ago some parts of the world xperienced sustained progress opening up gaps and setting the stage for today's disproportionately uneual world Deaton takes an. T run aground on the same fundamental problems over and over again p 317 For now the most urgent task is to undo the work that has been done by those who want aid and to persuade the citizens of the rich world that much aid is harmful that aid would be harmful still and that they can best help the poor of the world by not giving them large scale aid If we were to succeed in this and give less aid what then could we do to discharge our obligation to assist Doing less harm would be a good start p318 The actions he suggests that the rich countries can do to help follow along the line of Bhagwati it is hard to think of substantial increases in aid being spent ffectively in Africa But it is not so hard to think of aid being spent productively lsewhere for Africa p318 319 Following the arguments of the book I think the recommendations are sound but The Mephisto Threat (Paul Tallis even so it will be difficult to see how the rich countries will break away from their ways of practiceFinally the book concludes with our prospects Can our childrenxpect to do better than us The answer is that nothing is certain There are many threats to our well being that have already merged climate change slowdown in conomic growth polarisation of the being that have already merged climate change slowdown in conomic growth polarisation of the market wars the superbugs that are resistant to all known antibiotics Our optimism is in the ingenuity of human beings to overcome setback in the future as they had in the pastNote that the subject matter is necessarily value laden and it is impossible to write a book on the subject without the underpinning of a moral standpoint whether it is made implicit or Just Cause explicit Yet this is not a book on the moral debates which are left for the reader to ponder in his own space and time That said most of what have been covered in the book can be agreed by the majority or well argued with supportedvidence and reasoning Das Thema ist spannend aber sehr langf dig geschrieben Der Autor wiederholt sich immet und immer wieder Musste mich sehr anstrengen damit ich dran blieb nicht sehr fesselnd Schade Das als Opus Magnum des Wirtschaftsnobelpreistr gers Angus Deaton behandelt die Entstehungsgeschichte des Wohlstands der Nationen Die rfolgreiche Entwicklung der westlichen Welt bezeichnet r als Great Escape und ist zugleich titelgebend f r das Buch Mega Arbeit This book can change the way you think It s a bit of a mixed bag with xplanations that are clear but that can be long nough to be a little frustrating combined with a lot of xciting insights into the link between health and wealth It is gentle in tone but has a powerful logic that is overwhelmingly convincing This book is well wort This book does what it says on the tin It xplains why as best we know some but not others have scaped from short lives of ill health to lives of wealth and wellbeing It then xplains why aid does harm than goodThe most interesting part of the opening chapters comprises graphs showing that whereas it s tempting to conclude that past a certain point wealth does not bring life satisfaction the data looks very different if you plot wealth on a logarithmic scale More money does bring life satisfaction it s just that for ach step up the ladder you might need four times as much wealth as you did for the step before And similarly for life xpectancy plotted against GDP per capita on a logarithmic scaleWe don t really know too much about the causes of improvements in life Fiesta Moon expectancy but before 1750 in England the aristocracy and others had about the same lifexpectancy Then things started to diverge and health started to improve with things like variolation against smallpox the germ theory of disease and improved sanitation start to impact particularly on the deaths of babies and young children Then modern medicine has started winning against the diseases of old age with smoking cessation impacting on lung cancer and related diseases water pills as anti hypertensives to tackle cardiovascular disease and ven some progress on cancer Meanwhile in poor countries ducating mothers seems to be very important so The Taste of Night even than GDP growth Heights are generally improvingverywhere just about too But verywhere progress can suffer setbacks the influenza outbreak of 1918 or HIVAIDSTurning to wealth the story is harder to understand Poverty declines across the board in the US for a while then growth slows and the gains from growth are captured by the one per cent and portions thereof as the work of Piketty shows There are also social changes to account for such as the growth in. In depth look at the historical and ongoing patterns behind the health and wealth of nations and addresses what needs to be done to help those left behind  Deaton describes vast innovations and wrenching setbacks the successes of antibiotics pest control vaccinations and clean water on one hand and disastrous famines and the HIVAIDS pidemic on the other He The Trust examines the United States a nation that has prospered but is todayxperiencing slower growth and increasing ineuality He also considers how .
