The contrast between Europeżs and Asiażs experiences with regional integration and institution-building raises numerous questions about the changing nature of economic integration and multilateral cooperation in the 21st century.

Reviews the poverty measuring practices, available measures of poverty, and economic growth figures of Nepal. The poverty rates for FY 1976-77, 1984-85, and 1995-96 are found to be not comparable due to change in methodology over time. The three poverty rates average 40%. Nepal has experienced high economic growth during the 7th (1985-86 to 1989-90) and 8th (1992-93 to 1996-97) Plan periods with no strong evidences of poverty reduction.

There have been many proposals to restructure the Social Security (SS) system to include individual accounts. Many who favor individual accounts proposals point to the low rates of return (RoR) that workers can expect from the current system & the opportunity that individual accounts would offer for improving RoR on retirement contributions. Opponents of individual accounts have taken exception to the usefulness & validity of focusing on RoR. This report: (1) examines estimates of SSs RoR for different birth years, earnings levels, households, & other demographic groupings; (2) examines RoR av
