World Economic and Social Survey 1995 points to two economic and social realities existing side by side. At a time when the global economy is comparatively healthy, many regions are enjoying increasing prosperity and show an ability to sustain their growth. Simultaneously, for many of the world's citizens, this is an era of hardship—and worse suffering seems to lie ahead. In a world that is tightly linked economically, this imbalance threatens the long-term welfare of both developed and developing economies. Chapter 1.
