Kaushik Basu (Editor)
Kaushik Basu is Carl Marks Professor of Economics at Cornell University. He has been Professor of Economics at the Delhi School of Economics and has to his credit a large number of monographs, edited volumes, and essay collections (including Economic Graffiti and Of People, Of Places). â€˜Kaushik Basu is that triply rare being-an Indian intellectual who is open-minded, an economic theorist who is interested in human beings, and an American academic who has a sense of style. These, and many other, gifts are on display in this richly readable collection of essays. In prose that is always elegant and often witty, Basu throws fresh light here on themes of compelling importance to India and the world-the role of the market, the relations between states, the perils and promises of globalization.â€™
