  Jamaica Gleaner - Pragmatic economist - Wednesday | July 16, 2003
Ul Haq was exposed to the "prevailing wisdom" of measuring development by looking solely at economic growth, i.e.
Haq is an index for human development which measures national well being: life expectancy, education, welfare and of course wealth.
Ul Haq was pragmatic yet profound and engaging in the promotion of his thesis.

Haq was convinced that the contemporary obsession with increased income per head blinded both observers and participants to the tremendous advances that could be made in social well-being, even in quite poor countries, with only a modest rise in incomes.
The challenge, argued Dr Haq, which these countries met, is to combine high levels of human development, low unemployment and rapid economic growth, creating a virtuous circle in which productivity rises and triggers an increase in real wages which, in turn, attracts more investment in human capital, in education, and in access to social services.
Not surprisingly, Dr Haq was a strong critic of the tactics of the International Monetary Fund during the current Asian crisis.

 Rediff On The NeT: Dilip D'Souza wished he knew Mahbub-Ul-Haq
Haq was one development economist who came to believe that countries develop when they invest, first and always, in their people.
Haq was the driving force behind the UNDP's Human Development Reports that have been published since 1990, as well as the yearly South Asia Development reports he published from Islamabad.
Haq's HDRs showed that the national interest was most effectively served -- could only be served -- by tending to the people's interest.

I smiled at this story, knowing perfectly well that the journalists and many others whom Mahbub ul Haq befriended over the years were part of the constituency he undertook to construct to get people to listen to him.
If you didn't know Mahbub, you might carelessly assign him to the company of Third World intellectuals who, as a group, came under a certain cloud in the West on account of a tendency toward anti-Americanism in politics and toward redistribution rather than growth in economics.
I remember a lunch with Mahbub ul Haq in the '80s while he was impatiently but loyally doing a tour of ministerial duty in Islamabad.

 Book review of
We have, however, Ul Haq arguing that creating new institutions for satisfying basic needs is more urgent than ever, and a "Washington consensus" that proclaims that the problem of raising incomes has been solved.
Indeed, if Ul Haq’s brief discussions of his experience as Planning and Finance Minister in General Zia’s government in Pakistan are to be believed, exactly the opposite seems to be the case.
The essays are useful as introductory material for undergraduates, but Ul Haq eschews analysis of the deeper philosophical issues of human well-being, the technical issues of how to construct an index summarizing well-being, and the political economy issues of how a society actually and historically improves well-being.

This was disputed by prominent economists such as Amartya Sen, Paul Streeten, Mahbub ul Haq, and others who believed that increased incomes should be regarded as a means to improve human welfare, not as an end in itself (Sen, 1988; Streeten, 1994).
Increased incomes and national economic growth were crucial preconditions for improvements in standards of living, but not the only preconditions.
With the first Human Development Report from 1990, prepared under the leadership of Mahbub ul Haq, the United Nations Development Program (UNDP) adopted this basic criticism of income measurements and presented a more comprehensive concept of human development (UNDP, 1990).
