|Abstract: ||Since the post war period there has been a growing interest,
particularly amongst planners in developing countries, in the relationship between
Human Resource Development (HRD) and economic growth. During the 1960s
and 1970s it was assumed that developing countries could identify the precise
nature of their manpower requirements using complex econometric models.
Although, more recently labour market analysis has been used as tool for
informing policy makers. However, this paper argues that in order to understand
the complex relationship between HRD and economic growth it is necessary to
place it in the context of the historical formation of a country’s state. Using
Mexico as a case study, the present paper demonstrates how changes in the
behaviour of country’s state, following the economy’s recent restructuring,
determine which components of HRD receive priority and which do not.
Furthermore, it also enables us to account for the challenges facing HRD in
