Economic Restructuring and Human Resource Development: A Discussion of Events in Mexico

By Marcus Powell


This paper was published as Working Paper 19 by the Centre for Labour Market Studies, University of Leicester. It is available from only entrySince the post war period there has been a growing interest,\ud particularly amongst planners in developing countries, in the relationship between\ud Human Resource Development (HRD) and economic growth. During the 1960s\ud and 1970s it was assumed that developing countries could identify the precise\ud nature of their manpower requirements using complex econometric models.\ud Although, more recently labour market analysis has been used as tool for\ud informing policy makers. However, this paper argues that in order to understand\ud the complex relationship between HRD and economic growth it is necessary to\ud place it in the context of the historical formation of a country’s state. Using\ud Mexico as a case study, the present paper demonstrates how changes in the\ud behaviour of country’s state, following the economy’s recent restructuring,\ud determine which components of HRD receive priority and which do not.\ud Furthermore, it also enables us to account for the challenges facing HRD in\ud Mexico today
