Beyond Old Equations: Small Enterprise Experience and Perspectives in India

P.M. Mathew (Author)
Synopsis Globalisation has become the reality of the times. The rules of the game under globalisation are much different from what we were used to in the 20th century. Irrespective of the changes in the old economy and the birth of the New Economy, the concerns guiding the development of small enterprises still remain intact, as the objectives of social policy in India continue to be the same. But the strategies for translating these concerns into policies have changed significantly. While until 20th century, the primarily employment generating role of small industry guided us to distinguish between micro and macro policies, today, even the smallest of the small firm cannot remain unaffected by rules of a global economy. It is this new environment which forms the backbone of the discussion in this book. The discussion ranges from macro policies, regional development experiences, development strategies and new perspective on the emerging development scene. The coverage and complementarities make it an indispensable reading material for all who are interested in business and employment.
