In the modern times education is most effective tool of empowerment. You empower a man with this magical wand and he will create his own world of idea and imagination .It is this tool which has changed the topography of world from scrambled mass of continents to a global village. Great men like Abraham Lincoln used this weapon of mass awakening to create a country which believed in social justice and inclusive growth. Whereas our own A.P.J. Abdul kalam used this weapon as to prepare a range of Agni missiles to give India a clear edge in security development. In order to understand the fundamental relationship between education and development we need to answer basically two questions. They are: why we require education? And after all what is development? When the two question is answered it explains the relationship between development and education by its own. WHY WE REQUIRE EDUCATION?
According to swami Vivekananda education is process by which character is formed, strength of mind is increased and intellect is sharpened as a result of which one can stand on one’s own feet. And when this jewel coronate maximum people of country then nation becomes developed. Education enhances one's knowledge and as the saying goes; knowledge is power. However, power that a person possess will be dependent on how an individual uses it.
This is where the education should be given importance. As education is geared towards individual development, such development should eventually transform into nations development.
It is one important policy that a state must promote, as education is the only means to understand its history, culture and to some extent their state policy. Education is the only means to unite a country, a people as nation. Educated people are better positioned to contribute positively to country’s growth, ✍ in developing countries, education is viewed as means to alleviate poverty and engineer social change. It isn't a magic pill for solving all the problems. But it can surely be a ladder to climb out of poverty, exclusion, ignorance, oppression, and war. WHAT IS DEVELOPMENT
Development is A purposeful change in a society that contributes to social and economic wellbeing and Advancement of its people without creating any disharmony. Development empowers people and promotes important changes in their lives. However, development cannot take place by itself. It requires an educated, skilled and competent people. Seen from this angle, education becomes the most important factor for development as well as for empowering people. People having reasonable literacy and numeracy skills tend to produce more farm crops, have limited number of children and enjoy a relatively better quality of life as compared with uneducated families. It is because of its tangible contributions in changing the lives of the people that education becomes an important part of the development policy in every country.
our worthy opponents may argue that education can only be useful and meaningful when it brings about positive changes in one’s life and empowers a person to face day-to-day challenges. On the same grounds, they may assert that education becomes meaningful only when it provides knowledge and skills of reading, writing, simple arithmetic, and problem solving and for improving the quality of life. Education organised and oriented on these lines is certainly going to have a lasting impact on income, agricultural productivity, fertility rate, birth spacing, pre- and postnatal health, nutrition, knowledge, attitudes and values.
An investment in knowledge pays the best interest.

The Growth of Nations
in the world's richest countries are more than ten
times as high as in the world's poorest countries. It is apparent to anyone
who travels the world that these large differences in income lead to large
differences in the quality of life. Less apparent are the reasons for these
differences. What is it about the United States, Japan, and Germany that
makes these countries so much richer than India, Indonesia, and Nigeria? How can the rich countries be sure to maintain their high standard
of living? What can the poor countries do to join the club?
After many years of neglect, these questions are again at the center of
macroeconomic research and teaching. Long-run growth is now widely
viewed to be at least as important as short-run fluctuations. Moreover,
growth is not just important. It is also a topic about which macroeconomists, with their crude aggregate models, have something useful to say.
My goal here is to assess what we now know about economic growth.
The scope of this paper is selective and, to some extent, idiosyncratic.
The study of growth has itself grown so rapidly in recent years that it
would take an entire book to discuss thefieldthoroughly.' In this paper,
I do not try to lay out the many different views in the large literature on
economic growth. Instead, I try to present my own views, as...
...‘The NationState is dead, long live the TNC’. Critically assess the changing relationships between TNC’s and nationstates.
The inevitable growth of globalisation over the past few decades has gradually created the occurrence we now know as the “Trans-national Corporation (TNCs)”. This essay will aim to the highlight and explain the situation in which nationstates are continually being reformed by these TNCs.
Globalisation & the Role of Technology
Globalisation is the process of allowing goods, financial and investments markets to operate across national borders due to deregulation, improved communications, infrastructure and technology.
Technology is the “heart” of globalisation. The evolution of technology has sped up the gradual increase in globalisation. As companies build better communication channels, more information can be sent around the world to more remote locations allowing corporations to reach wider markets. Newer and faster modes of transport have allowed more goods and services to be exported around the world, again allowing corporations to reach a wider scope of the world. Technology has also increased the mobility of labour as workers can relocate to areas with better employment opportunities; and transnationals can move to areas with better skilled/cheaper labour.

...The Effect of Education on Economic Growth
Education is one of the primary factors of development. Countries can’t achieve economic development without investment in human capital. Vocational training and higher education equip a worker to perform certain jobs or functions .It improves the quality of their lives and leads to social benefits to individuals and society like improving income distribution. Education increase people's productivity and creativity and promotes entrepreneurship and technological advances. Technological progress reflects the growth of human knowledge.
The purpose of this paper is to examine the role of investment in human capital in promoting economic growth and technological progress. Some empirical studies conclude that there is strong evidence that skills of population are powerfully related to long run economic growth. However, another study finds the linkage to be insignificant and some find the economic growth depends negatively on the cost of education or on the barriers to get education.
Many researches have shown there is a strong positive relationship between investment in human capital and economic growth .scholars and policymakers focus on income growth to...

...Contribution of education sector toward economic growth
This report is design to show the increase in economic growth of country with the development of its education sector. An increase in the capacity of an economy to produce goods and services, compared from one period of time to another is known as the economic growth of a country, which shows the development of a country. Nations cannot be developed without investing in education. Education is a multidimensional process, on one side, it enhances the economic growth and on the other side, it reduces the poverty by increasing the productivity. Education plays a vital role in shaping the way in which future generations learn to cope with the complexities of economic growth.
Educational institutions prepare the citizens to be able to participate actively in all walks of life including economic activities. The study also recommends pro-poor growth and education in Pakistan. In Pakistan problems face by private and public educational sectors due to which they were not doing their best. The magnitude of change needed makes clear that closing the economic gap with developed countries will require major structural education system.
...Can a state survive without nationalism?
This paper will respond to the argument that a state cannot survive without nationalism. For the purpose of this essay, two elements of nationalism are used. The first element states that nationalism maintains the similarity of culture as the basic social bond in the members of the nation1. The second element states that the state has legitimate rights to sovereign rule of anation. The factors that result from the three elements of nationalism that contributes to the survival of the state are equality within people in the state in terms of the state being meritocratic and the administrative rights of the state. Nationalism results in two main factors that are essential for the state to survive, mainly, the administrative rights of the state and meritocracy. Hence, the state needs nationalism to survive. A nation, defined by Anthony Smith, is “[a] named population sharing a historic territory, common myths and historical memories [and] a mass public culture, a common economy and common legal rights,”2
For the purpose of this essay, all states will be referred to as modern states with a centralized power held by the state and a legal entity with sovereign rule over its people. This essay argues...
What is a Nation-State?
A most basic definition of the state is an organization that maintains monopoly of violence over a territory. One of the most important elements of a state is called sovereignty, or the ability to carry out actions or policies within a territory independently from external actors or internal rivals. A state needs to be able to act as the primary authority over its territory and the people who live there, setting laws and rights, resolving disputes between people and organization and generating domestic security. (O’Neil H. Patrick pg. 22)
Every state is founded on force. A social institution should know the use of violence because if they didn’t the concept of a state would be eliminated and an anarchy would emerge. (O’Neil H. Patrick and Rogowski Ronald pg. 22) A state can be defined as a human community that successfully claims the monopoly of the legitimate use of physical force within a given territory. A territory is one of the characteristics of the state. The relationship between the state and violence is intimate, the state is considered the sole source of the right to use violence. If the state is to exist the dominated party must obey the authority claimed by the powers be. The state is a relation of men...
