Nigel Harris (born 1935) is a British economist specializing in the economics of metropolitan areas. However he fully recognised what he called 'the inertia' of the national state, not only as a political-economic force, but also as an ideological one, which also succeeded because it continued to force us to analyse a global world. The new untouchables: immigration and the new world worker(1996).

For developing countries, the traditional exporters of labour, remittance payments are particularly significant. An Investigation of Household Remittance Behaviour. The study supports the view that there are loopholes in the processes which is being abused by mostly the multinationals to exploit the developing countries. It concludes that the concept is capable of positive impact, but will need to be modified by promoting institutions to turn the pain of the developing countries to gain.

Cities in the 1990s" is sure to be regarded as essential reading for anyone concerned with the staggering problems and challenges facing the developing countries today. It provides authoritative discussion and analysis at the highest level. Its relevance to the professional interests of those working directly on development issues will quickly be recognized.

This has lead to controversy as to the impact and the future of PPI.

The resource-based view, therefore, will be as powerful and as important to strategy in the 1990s as industry . Superior performance will therefore be based on developing a competitively distinct set of resources and deploying them in a well-conceived strategy.

The resource-based view, therefore, will be as powerful and as important to strategy in the 1990s as industry analysis was in the 1980s. See the insert A Brief History of Strategy. A Brief History of Strategy. The field of strategy has largely been shaped around a framework first conceived by Kenneth R. Andrews in his classic book The Concept of Corporate Strategy (Richard D. Irwin, 1971). How Marks & Spencer’s Resources Give It Competitive Advantage. Competitively Valuable Resources.

Making cities more resilient against these environmental threats is one of the biggest challenges faced by city authorities and requires urgent attention. Cities need resources such as water, food and energy to be viable. Smart planning used in Singapore can harness solar energy for use in housing estates and create man-made wetlands for ecological balance. Smart mobility technology can alleviate traffic gridlocks which plague many cities.

The 1990s was a decade of historical significance with numerous and remarkable changes. Yet the resulting growth experiences of developing countries have been extremely varied and often below expectations. It was also a time of considerable reforms that strengthened the policy framework in a large number of countries. What have we learned from this experience? And how can these lessons be applied to the challenges we face in the new millennium?

As a priviliged insight into operational thinking within governments and aid agencies, "Cities in the 1990s" addresses the key issues facing urban areas in developing countries. Based on an important workshop involving representatives and senior officers from a host of aid agencies and governments, it exposes to public scrutiny the approaches emerging in the wake of a sea-change in international aid policy away from rural development and towards urban areas. In 1991, the World Bank and the United Nations separately published new policy agendas on urbanization in the 1990s. These argued a new case in the face of burgeoning urban growth in developing countries, where the cities and mega-cities accommodate not simply the majority of the population but also most of the poor. This predominance of the urban domain is acknowledged and reflected in the main thrust of the new agendas: that the cities are the main means of transforming society as a whole in economic terms and of alleviating and overcoming poverty in developing countries. Published in association with the Overseas Development Agency, the book includes summaries of these policy documents, two major papers by Kenneth Watts and Nigel Harris, and the main speeches, discussions and summaries at the workshop, which was convened by the Development Planning Unit at University College London. The editor's introduction lays out the context of thought, policy and action within which the new agendas can be located. The book is far from being a work of "ivory-tower" scholarship: the discussions are about how governments should act, and how realistic and relevant the new policy directions are in operational terms. "Cities in the 1990s" is sure to be regarded as essential reading for anyone concerned with the staggering problems and challenges facing the developing countries today. It provides authoritative discussion and analysis at the highest level. Its relevance to the professional interests of those working directly on development issues will quickly be recognized. It offers a rare view, from the perspective of a powerful and influential group of contributors, of what is perhaps "the" major development issue of the 1990s. As such, it will also be widely read in the academic community by all concerned with the developing world -- economists, planners, geographers, sociologists, anthropologists and political scientists -- whether they be students or researchers. "Nigel Harris has been working, writing, teaching and researching in the fieldof the economics of large cities in developing countries for some 25 years. With experience in India, China, Korea, Hong Kong, Mexico, Brazil and elsewhere, he has worked for both the World Bank and the United Nations. He is the well known author of many articles and books.".
