India's Economy: A Journey in Time and Space

 
Raj Kapila (Editor) Uma Kapila (Author)
Synopsis This volume includes contributions by some of the most distinguished economists/experts and provides rare insights into India's development journey through time and space—the successes and failures, and the new challenges emerging from integration with the world economy. Opportunities offered by the forces of globalisation offer India immense scope to improve the quality of life of its people provided appropriate policies are put in place. India's Economy: A Journey in Time and Space, is the hundredth volume of Economic Developments in India. This is a selection of 20 articles from over 500 published in Economic Developments in India since its inception in 1998 upto December 2005. This volume, in three sections, covers the most vital issues relating to the journey: (i) Growth, Poverty and Reforms (ii) Globalisation and (iii) Sectoral Developments: Agriculture, Industry, Financial and External Sectors. The general message which emerges is that India's future problems are no doubt large but manageable. In this context, the book examines the challenges ahead, outlines policies, and identifies lacunae in their implementation, which lie at the root of most of the difficulties facing the nation today. Covering a broad range of critical issues, the book will be of interest to policy-makers, researchers, students of Indian economy and India-watchers.
