"The UNDP team, under a Pakistani economic guru, offers the World Bankers some healthy competition."--The Economist "Mahbub ul Haq is the closest thing to a visionary that the UN system possesses. Cutting through the bureaucracy and conservatism of the UN Development Program, he has launched the Human Development Report, which annually criticizes both governments and agencies like the World Bank for their neglect of the key elements of human well-being--health, education and a decent living wage."--New Internationalist "One of the most appealing ideas is what Mahbub ul Haq, Special Adviser to the UNDP, describes a s a 'second birth' for the United Nations. Dr. Haq, the Human Development Report's formidable chief architect, wants the UN to act as a 'peace corps' not a 'police force', moving from its quasi-military role to become a super-development agency. He marshals some compelling reasons."--The London Times "The most promising (proposal at the Social Sumit) was the '20/20' plan conceived by Pakistan's Haq, in which donors would direct 20 percent of their foreign aid programs to meet basic human needs and receiving countries would commit 20 percent of their budgets to the same goal."--The Washington Post "The UNDP team, under a Pakistani economic guru, offers the World Bankers some healthy competition."--The Economist "Mahbub ul Haq is the closest thing to a visionary that the UN system possesses.
