Latest news from WorldRecordJobs creator Jim Kim sees this introduction to world development report 2019- on how work and livelihoods are changing #BR6 #Br!
Our Human Capital Project aims to fix that. This study unveils our new
Human Capital Index, which measures the consequences of neglecting
investments in human capital in terms of the lost productivity of the next
generation of workers. In countries with the lowest human capital investments
today, our analysis suggests that the workforce of the future will only
be one-third to one-half as productive as it could be if people enjoyed full
health and received a high-quality education.
viii | Foreword
Adjusting to the changing nature of work also requires rethinking the
social contract. We need new ways to invest in people and to protect them,
regardless of their employment status. Yet four out of five people in developing
countries have never known what it means to live with social protection.
With 2 billion people already working in the informal sectorunprotected
by stable wage employment, social safety nets, or the benefits of education

This Report challenges governments to take better care of their citizens
and calls for a universal, guaranteed minimum level of social protection.
It can be done with the right reforms, such as ending unhelpful subsidies;
improving labor market regulations; and, globally, overhauling taxation policies.
Investing in human capital is not just a concern for ministers of health
and education; it should also be a top priority for heads of state and ministers
of finance. The Human Capital Project will put the evidence squarely
in front of those decision makers, and the index will make it hard to ignore.
The 2019 World Development Report is unique in its transparency. For the
first time since the World Bank began publishing the WDR in 1978, we
made an updated draft publicly available, online each week, throughout the
writing process. For over seven months, it has benefited from thousands of
comments and ideas from development practitioners, government officials,
scholars, and readers from all over the world. I hope many of you will have
already read the Report. Over 400,000 downloads later (and counting), I am
pleased to present it to you in its final form.
