  1. 1. Development As Freedom by Amartya Sen

    The book in question is a seminal work in the field of economics and development studies, which argues that true development is best understood as the process of expanding the real freedoms that people enjoy. It challenges traditional indicators of growth, such as GDP, suggesting that they fail to capture the essence of human well-being. Instead, it posits that development should be assessed by the range of choices available to individuals, including access to education, healthcare, and the ability to participate in the economic and political life of society. The author emphasizes the interdependence of various types of freedoms, from political rights to economic opportunities, and the role they play in empowering people to live the lives they value.
