This book is an introduction to the newer features of growth theory that are particularly useful in examining the issues of economic development. Structural transformation, in which developing countries transition from traditional production in largely rural areas to modern production in largely urban areas, is an important causal force in.

He holds a degree in statistics (University of Bologna) and a PhD in Food Economics and Policy (University of Siena).Cited by: Within the nutritionist profession, the focus is on the inter‐linkages between body weight, basal metabolism, physical activity and nutrition (calorie) requirement.
Economists are primarily interested in the two‐way linkage between income and food (calories) consumption, i.e. the demand for food as a function of income, and also food as a determinant of individuals’ labour.

There are many reasons why the relationship between health and labor market outcomes in developing econo-mies should be of special interest. First, there is a long tradition of theoretical models of nutrition-based efficiency wages in the development literature.
The obesity epidemic and the growing debate about what, if any, public health policy should be adopted is the subject of endless debates within the media and in governments around the world.
Whilst much has been written on the subject, this book takes a unique approach by looking at the obesity epidemic from an economic perspective.

Diet-related diseases produce crushing health and economic burdens. The estimated US costs of diabetes, cardiovascular diseases, obesity-related cancers, and other obesity-related conditions are approximately $ trillion per year, 1 or % of the gross domestic product.
This burden creates tremendous stress on government budgets, private Cited by: 2. While human capital is a clear determinant of economic growth, only recently has health's role in this process become a focus of serious academic inquiry.
By marrying the separate fields of health economics and growth theory, this groundbreaking book explores the explicit mechanisms by which a population's individual and collective health status affects a nation's economic.
The role of health in economic development is analyzed via two channels: the direct labor productivity e⁄ect and the indirect incentive e⁄ect. The labor productivity hypothesis asserts that individuals who are healthier have higher model of nutrition to labor input. This is well tested in the empirical literature with mixed conclusions.
Effects of malnutrition include mortality, decreased economic productivity, morbidities, such as blindness and stunting, and development of chronic diseases.
Conversely, overnutrition has emerged and economic productivity book current and growing threat to the world's health. Two-thirds of adults in the United States are overweight or obese, and 35 percent of the world's /5(5). A Model of the Determinants of Health.

A model is formulated incorporating linkages among nutrition, labor-market productivity, health heterogeneity, and the intrahousehold distribution of food and work activities in a subsistence economy.
Empirical results, based on a sample of households from Bangladesh, indicate that, despite considerable intrahousehold disparities in calorie.
