Two roles of Freedom Evaluation of success and failure Individual initiative and social effectiveness Freedom 3. Income and Capabilities Poverty and Inequality income deprivations ≠ capability deprivations • European attempts to move to “self-help” social climate without devising adequate policies of unemployment make the “self-help” extremely difficult. • It leads to losses of self reliance, self confidence, and psychological and physical health.
  13. 13. Chapter 1 4. Income and Mortality • African Americans are more wealthy than people in much poorer regions such as China, Kerala and Sri Lanka, Jamaica , Costa Rica. But their life expectancy is shorter. The causal influences on the contrasts:  Social arrangements  Community relations e.g. medical coverage, public health care, sc hool education, law and order etc. • When William Petty initiated income and the expenditure method of es timating national income, he was concerned “Common safety” and “Each person’s particular happiness”. 83% - 75 aged 72-74% - 75 aged 67% - 75 aged
  14. 14. 5. Markets and Freedom  There are two arguments in the market mechanism. 1. Denial of opportunities of transaction by arbitrary control, can be source of unfreedom – Does not depend on the efficiency of market mechanism or any analysis of the consequences. 2. Arbitrary restriction of the market mechanism can lead to a reduc tion of freedoms because of the consequential effects of the absence of market.  John Hicks - The liberal or non-interference principles of the classical economists were not in the first place economic principles but to apply to a much wider field E.g. Slaves life expectancy and wages were just as high as many other peoples and yet no-one chose that way of life when given a choice Chapter 1
  15. 15.  Issue of participation is central  Economic development of a nation may lead to loss of traditions and cultural heritage. Others may say it is better to be rich and happy than impoverished and traditional.  In the direct involvement, people should decide “what should be best”: 1. The basic value – traditions they whish and not wish to followed 2. The persistence that established traditions be followed 6. Tradition, culture and democracy Culture is Destiny – Lee Kuan Yew Chapter 1
  16. 16. • The process of development is not essentially different from the history of overcoming these unfreedoms. • “Development as Freedom” is not so much to order all states or one “complete ordering” but to draw attention on important aspects of the process of development. • The approach requires no such unanimity. Indeed debates on important political arguments in the process of democratic participation that characterizes development. Ending remarks Chapter 1
  17. 17.  Through capitalist especially neo-liberal capitalist perspecti ve, too much attention on freedom (social issues) but not capital issue both for individuals and community.  The absence of an analysis of the power relations that cause and reproduce underdevelopment through national and international political institutions.  Promoted the establishment of democratic ideals and free doms, “unfreedoms” prolonged by contemporary neo-liberal developmental models.  Suggested to initiate debates and political arguments to tackle the poverty and unfreedom in society. But there is no solid approaches that he offered and no practical achi evements. Critics
  18. 18.  What is the key learning in your point of view?  In the “Development as Freedom” perspective, how do you define current development/ level of freedom of your country?  Among all different freedoms, which one is the most vital in t he lenses of “Development as freedom”?
