Abstract

Outlook 2010 provides the impetus for the cross-fertilisation of knowledge—across physical boundaries, cultures and epistemic schools. The main objective is to question the intrinsic ideological value of neoliberal thinking and methodologies; and to assess whether neoliberal approaches to development are appropriate for the socioeconomic challenges that beset Third World nations. The perspectives presented in this volume challenge traditional development thought and seek to present avantgarde ways of thinking about achieving sustainable development (SD), particularly in developing countries (DCs). Outlook 2010 covers a range of topics that ensemble endeavour to address growing concerns about the problems of the third world underdevelopment, even after decades of experimentation with one development strategy or another; all of which failed to deliver the majority of the world’s population from the bowels of poverty. The main topics include: Accounting, economics and business management; Diasporic tourism, migration and brain circulation; Social capital and sustainable development; Changing demography of the world and the implications for policy making; ICTs, learning and development; The environment and sustainable development; Transport studies; and Public health.
