Rethinking development in the global information age

Castells, Manuel

"To start with, I provide my own definition of development, which I posit as ideologically free in the sense that it can be filled
in with different ideologies, and therefore it is not my ideology: you all can insert your ideology and it works. It is also open-ended
in terms of content. I define development as the self-defined process – self is important – by which humans, as a collective,
enhance their well-being by creating the structural conditions for the expanded reproduction of the process of development itself,
so enhancing their well-being and, at the same time, creating the structural conditions for this process to go on."
