In this article we present an analysis of several socio-economic indicators related with quality of life, economic development, human capital, social capital and women participation in politics, management, labor and income. We present some econometric models which relate women income ratio with political, management and labor participation, as well as with the educational level of population, quality of government and real GDP per capita. Regarding quality of life we also analyze some indicators related with health assistance, education expenditure and poverty eradication. The overall conclusion is that international cooperation to foster education is of uppermost importance for world development and human wellbeing. Among the initiatives to reach the Millennium Development Goals it is of uppermost importance to reach a closer cooperation between development economists, journalists, educators and other social agents highly motivated to increase international cooperation for education and poverty eradication.
