What is the relationship of resources and development?

Bookmark and Share
Q. Nepal is rich in natural resources like land, water, and biodiversity. Nepal should have developed through energy generation from rivers, tourism from aesthetic and panoramic view of mountains, hills, flat plains, green forests. Similarly, medicine and other products are possible from diverse flora and fauna. But it is not developed. Arenât there any linkages on resources and development?

A. Yes, there is generally a positive relation between natural resource andowment and economic development. But this relationship holds strongly true in an environment of free movement of capital and labor and generally competitive free market system. In the absence of an autmatic and sustainable system that makes best use of the available resources, economic development cannot come about.
But Nepal, although being a small country, never had a free competitive market system. Rather, it remained feudalistc with the King and elected ministers copying Indian centrally planned system of State controls and direction and domination. Such systems talk loudly about best use of resources, high economic growth and equity but they are seldom efficient or effective in delivering the tall promises the politicians sell to the public: rather these kinds of systems are the best suited for the rapid growth of corruption and injustice together with huge misallocation of resources. On top of the low education makes productivity low. Political and economic oppression leads to frstrations and breeds insurgencyaided by foreign forces. These do not foster economic developmenrty. Education, competetive markets, desire to excel, allowing globally efficient companies to set up businesses without hindrances are all required for economic development. Nepal also has shown hatred and disrect to India, despite enjoying huge facilities from India. Such blindness has placed Nepal at a great disadvantage
It is ultimately the quality of the human resources in terms education, willingness to work harder, adopting congenial value system are the keys to taking best advantage of the natural resouirces.

How can I Starting a Consultancy Business?
Q. Starting a new consulting business is an exciting and challenging venture. Investing time, money, and effort in a new business should not be done intuitively or haphazardly. There should be a blueprint to follow and check against so that major components are not left out. Can someone help me with business plan that I can follow for successful consultancy business. I want to specialize in areas of Executive Recruitment; Human and Resource Development; Organizational Development; Research and Feasibility Studies and Sustainable Rural Development.

A. There isn't a set blueprint to follow, that is why you have to develop the blueprint. It is like saying you want to get to 10 (your consultancy), how do you get there? 10, 9+1, 11-1, 2X5, 30/3?
