內容簡介

2015年諾貝爾經濟學獎得主為普林斯頓大學經濟學家迪頓(Angus Deaton),他對消費、貧窮與福利的卓越分析與貢獻使他獲獎。瑞典皇家科學院在新聞稿指出:「為制定增進福祉和減少貧窮的經濟政策,我們必須先了解個人的消費選擇,迪頓在提升這類理解上無人能出其右。」迪頓的研究連結了個體的選擇及其總和的結果,讓現代個體經濟學、總體經濟學與發展經濟學呈現不一樣的風貌。並使其他研究人員甚至如世界銀行(World Bank)等國際組織去重新審視貧窮的標準。

2015年諾貝爾經濟學獎得主迪頓(Angus Deaton)著作

普林斯頓大學學者迪頓,因對消費、貧窮與福利的卓越分析,獲得諾貝爾經濟學獎。長期研究經濟發展與貧窮的迪頓在最新著作中,指出自250年以來,部分國家在持續的經濟發展中,如何拉大貧富差距、並造成今日世界上不成比例的經濟不平等。

The world is a better place than it used to be. People are healthier, wealthier, and live longer. Yet the escapes from destitution by so many has left gaping inequalities between people and nations. In The Great Escape, Angus Deaton--one of the foremost experts on economic development and on poverty--tells the remarkable story of how, beginning 250 years ago, some parts of the world experienced sustained progress, opening up gaps and setting the stage for today's disproportionately unequal world. Deaton takes an in-depth look at the historical and ongoing patterns behind the health and wealth of nations, and addresses what needs to be done to help those left behind.

Deaton describes vast innovations and wrenching setbacks: the successes of antibiotics, pest control, vaccinations, and clean water on the one hand, and disastrous famines and the HIV/AIDS epidemic on the other. He examines the United States, a nation that has prospered but is today experiencing slower growth and increasing inequality. He also considers how economic growth in India and China has improved the lives of more than a billion people. Deaton argues that international aid has been ineffective and even harmful. He suggests alternative efforts--including reforming incentives to drug companies and lifting trade restrictions--that will allow the developing world to bring about its own Great Escape.

Demonstrating how changes in health and living standards have transformed our lives, The Great Escape is a powerful guide to addressing the well-being of all nations.
