Development and Public Finance: Essays in Honour of Raja J Chelliah

D.K. Srivastava (Editor)

Development and Public Finance is a commemorative volume on late Dr Raja J. Chelliah, one of the foremost Public Finance experts of India. It is designed as a compendium of essays on contemporary issues of Public Finance and Development, focusing on the rapidly globalizing Indian economy. Well-known scholars and experts have contributed insightful articles to this collection.

All contributions have been exclusively invited for this publication. They represent a weaving of interdependent themes of Development and Public Finance and are sequentially arranged to reflect their interrelationships. Some of the important topics analyzed by the articles are: divestment and privatization; financial transaction tax; carbon tax; fiscal federalism; goods and service tax; decentralization; social policy; and climate change.

Not only is this volume academically rich, it also has an entire section where Dr Chelliah’s peers and colleagues talk about him and how they saw him—the man they variously describe as a great scholar, a brilliant economist, and an indomitable crusader.
