KNOWLEDGE ACQUISITION Acquisition of knowledge has intrinsic value by itself, but more importantly, it is an important dimension of human development because as it is a critical means of building human capability. It is now generally accepted that knowl- edge is a core factor of production and a principal determinant of productivity and human capital. There is thus an important synergy between knowledge acquisition and the productive power of society. This synergy is especially strong in high value-added productive activities, which are becoming increasingly based on both intensive knowledge and the rapid obsolescence of know-how and capabilities.

The same is true for dynamic knowledge acquisition. 4 Development as freedom Expansion of freedom is viewed both as the primary end and as the principal means of development. Development consists of the removal of various types of unfreedoms that leave people with little choice and little opportunity for exercising their reasoned agency. The removal of substantial unfreedoms, it is argued here, is constitutive of development. However, for a fuller understanding of the connection between development and freedom, we have to go beyond that basic recognition (crucial as it is).

In that sense, these are also developmental outcomes. Hence, the indicators proposed here have global relevance that extends beyond the Arab countries. As a result, the set of six variables seems to provide a good starting point for constructing indices of human development. The proposition is surely worth pursuing, and refining. It can be anticipated that the utilisation of this set of indicators will, compared to the HDI, penalise Arab countries, an anticipation that would be borne out by the construction of such an AHDI.
