What Is Economic Development?. by GEDC (m): 9:46am on November 30
GLOBE ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT COUNCIL
, Nigeria.
Economic development is the process by which a nation improves the economic, political, and social well-being of its people......
The term has been used frequently by economists, politicians, and others in the 20th and 21st centuries. The concept, however, has been in existence in the West for centuries. "Modernization, "westernization", and especially "industrialization" are other terms often used while discussing economic development.


Economic development has a direct relationship with the environment and environmental issues.[further explanation needed] Economic development is very often confused with industrial development, even in some academic sources.


Whereas economic development is a policy intervention endeavor with aims of improving the economic and social well-being of people, economic growth is a phenomenon of market productivity and rise in GDP. Consequently, as economist Amartya Sen points out, "economic growth is one aspect of the process of economic development".
