Quotation Lutz, Wolfgang. 2011. Education spells hope for world wellbeing. Options (IIASA, Laxenburg, Austria), Winter 2011/2012.




Education has a positive effect on every aspect of human health, wealth, and wellbeing. Educational attainment, the evidence now clearly shows, is linked to economic growth as well as fertility and life expectancy. Even the transition of societies into modern democracies is rooted in widening educational participation among the young. But strong further investment in education in the developing world is needed if the potential benefits of education are to be realized.
