YR 2012 SN 9780821396209 9780821395752 0821395750 082139620X AB The World Development Report 2013: Jobs looks at jobs as drivers of development, not as derived labor demand, and considers all types of jobs, not just formal wage employment. The Report provides a framework that cuts across sectors and shows that the best policy responses vary across countries, depending on their levels of development, endowments, demography, and institutions. Policy fundamentals matter in all cases, as they enable a vibrant private sector, the source of most jobs in the world. Labor policies can help as well, even if they are less critical than is often assumed. Development policies, from making smallholder farming viable to fostering functional cities to engaging in global markets, hold the key to success.
