Employment Problems in Developing Countries: Lessons from the World Employment Programme

It is a great honour and pleasure for us to have been asked to contribute an article to this book of essays brought out for Hans Singer’s sixty-fifth birthday. Hans Singer has been very closely involved in the ILO World Employment Programme right from its inception and there is no doubt in our minds that, if there are any lessons to be learnt from the World Employment Programme, it is to a very large extent due to his inputs and his ever-alert critical mind which picks up any slips we are on the point of making or have already made.
