Analysing Human Development Theories in Profering Solutions to Poverty and Income Inequality



This research identified and analyzed human development theories. While some of the theories analyzed are focused on human development from biological point of view, other theories argue that environment and culture play a vital role in human development. Disagreements among theorists in the field of human development reveal conflicts in the field that needs to be resolved. While the conflicts and disagreements inherent in the field allow us to understand the basis for human development, I argue that what is more central is its relationship to economic development.  Based on my analysis, I made the following conclusion: first, there is not much difference in the theories as all of them focuses on development. Second, human development as a subject is generally accepted as multidisciplinary subject. Third, that human development as a subject has direct linkage to economic development vis-à-vis poverty and inequality.
