In this rejoinder to David Henderson’s article "False Perspective: the UNDP view of the world" (World Economics Vol 1 No 1 January-March 2000), Richard Jolly, former special adviser to the Administrator of the United Nations Development Programme, argues that Henderson’s criticisms of the UNDP’s Human Development Report 1999 are both misguided and misdirected, are dangerously complacent in suggesting that global governance needs no reforms, and take little account of the Report’s wider perspectives of human development and globalisation.
