This comprehensive work covers comparative economic systems and welfare economics in the era of globalization. The research stems from studies of the welfare programs, especially health, education, food security, of China, India, Cuba, and other emerging countries. Delving into poverty, inequality, unemployment, environmental decay, and rural stagnation, Dr Prabhakar not only tackles these development issues, but puts forth policies and practices for forward progress in our globalized world.
