The Oxford Companion to Economics in India

Kaushik Basu (Editor)
Synopsis As we get into the twenty-first century, the concept of 'the Indian economy' has come to encompass a mind-boggling array of topics, phenomena, and complexities. Understanding India's economy is not just an intellectual challenge, but, with the country emerging as a major global economy, also a requirement. This unique volume, the first comprehensive resource of its kind on the contemporary Indian economy, aims to address this need. Culled from the collective wisdom and experience of 200 distinguished contributors, including economists, business leaders, policymakers, and analysts, it collates facts with contemporary thinking on the Indian economy, to provide an accessible account of the diverse range of themes and issues relevant to India today. The more than 200 entries cover the evolution of the Indian economy from relative obscurity to an emergent global force, from the 'Hindu' rate of growth to its recent surge. They span the recent cover stories of India's phenomenal growth, leadership in software and information technology, and outsourcing success, and also document the backwaters - the widespread poverty, farmer suicides, child labour, and the large and impoverished informal sector that houses a majority of India’s labour force.

About the author

Kaushik Basu

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).  ‘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.’
