Book Description

May 10, 2007 0195669843 978-0195669848
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 Indias 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 Indias phenomenal growth, leadership in software and information technology, and outsourcing success, and also document the backwatersthe widespread poverty, farmer suicides, child labour, and the large and impoverished informal sector that houses a majority of Indias labour force.

Editorial Reviews


"[A] valuable encyclopedic work on the Indian economy... This volume will be a lasting resource on India and an intellectual treasure trove for economists and social scientists. It will be an indispensable reference for researchers, policy makers, and students of economic development and the Indian economy. Essential."--CHOICE

"This book is a unique and important guide to the dynamic Indian economy, and also a collection of penetrating essays by many of the world's true experts on subjects ranging from India's intriguing economic history to its potential as a world economic power."--Stephen P. Cohen, Senior Fellow, Centre for Policy Studies Program, Brookings Institution, Washington, D.C.

"Many of us inside and outside India who try to study the economy cannot possibly carry the breadth and knowledge and understanding that is likely to be relevant to a particular set of issues under examination. This volume will be of economic value to all those working on and with an interest in the Indian economy."--Nicholas H. Stern, Head of the Government Economic Service and Second Permanent Secretary to the Treasury of the United Kingdom
