Causes The rules of competition doesn`t work for natural goods or social goods Local problems have global causes – global problems have local causes The gap between rich and poor is widening; the resulting conflicts are becoming more and more pressing The spheres of influence of the national political institutions are so limited that they can hardly set priorities, much less cause an actual change The influence of the international institutions on the global development process is entirely unsatisfactory In relation to the high speed with which technological and economic developments change things, the political decision-making processes take far too long. iq consult _shaping development
