2 A Hundred Small Steps

Planning Commission, Government of India

Sage Publications, New Delhi, India, 2009, 817829950X / 9788178299501, First Edition, Paperback, New, 
While previous reports have focused solely on the ‘big?issues like capital account convertibility, bank privatization, and priority sector norms, A Hundred Small Steps: Report of the Committee on Financial Sector Reforms goes deep into other areas where reforms are less controversial, but perhaps as important. The report argues that we need a change in mindset for the financial sector, one that recognizes that efficiency, innovation, and value for money are as important for the poor as they are for our new Indian multinationals, and these will come from improved governance, new entry and competition. Indeed the Committee believes that the road to making Mumbai an international financial centre runs through every village in India. The report is divided into separate self-contained chapters; the underlying theme behind all the proposals is the need to enhance inclusion, growth, and stability by allowing players more freedom, even while strengthening the financial and regulatory infrastructure. The role of the government is to create an enabling environment by building sound financial infrastructure. The Committee has focused primarily on broad principles and directions, without entering too much into details of implementation. It emphasizes three important reasons for financial sector reform: to include more Indians in the growth process; to foster growth itself; and to improve financial stability, flexibility, and resilience and thus protect the economy against the kind of turbulence that is affecting the world today. The Committee recognizes this is a difficult time to propose financial sector reforms in India. The near meltdown of the US financial sector seems to be proof that markets and competition do not work. This is clearly the wrong lesson to take from the debacle. The right lesson is that markets and institutions do succumb occasionally to excesses, which is why regulators have to be vigilant. The report argues for skilled regulators who encourage growth and innovation even while working harder to contain risks. Printed Pages: 208. 028558

3 Agricultural Development, Rural Institutions, and Economic Policy: Essays for A. Vaidyanathan

Gopal K. Kadekodi and Brinda Viswanathan (eds.)

Oxford University Press, New Delhi, India, 2009, 0195698541 / 9780195698541, First Edition, Hardcover, New, New, 15 x 23 Cm 
Where does India stand in terms of social and economic development goals? Are we at a crossroad today when it comes to economic development? With liberalization and globalization as the backdrop, this timely book discusses the most recent advances and changes in agriculture, rural transformation, and institutional development in India. It emphasizes that public policy and decentralized local institutions have to move in tandem to ensure sustainable and deliverable agricultural development. The contributors support inclusive strategies of development, emphasize the need for better governance and decentralization in the development process, and support entry of market pricing and user charges in sectoral planning and management. The book is divided into sub-themes with significant policy implications—micro-credit policies, water resources, farm and non-farm employment, and institutions and governance. It calls for a reversal in the thinking on the planning process, that is, creation of institutions ahead of sectoral planning and balancing the sectoral growth priorities to meet social and regional requirements. 026182

4 An Economist’s Miscellany

Kaushik Basu

Oxford University Press, New Delhi, India, 2011, 0198072503 / 9780198072508, First Edition, Hardcover, New, New, 
Philosophy has to be deductive, poetry romantic, plays and fiction humorous, and politics intriguing if they are to catch my attention, writes Kaushik Basu. All these interests are on display in An Economist s Miscellany, which brings together an eclectic collection of writings on the world of academe, politics, and policy. Basu sweeps a vast canvas, from recession and the global economic crises, foreign policy, and financial scams, to art and aesthetics. In this slim volume he offers unique glimpses of his inner world his excitement and apprehensions on moving from academics to government and policymaking; his thoughts on his mother turning 90; and persons, ideas, and books that have influenced him. An Economist s Miscellany also puts on display his literary forays translations of two Bengali short stories and a four-act play. The stories are hilarious and yet have scathing social content: one illustrates the intricacies of moneylending and the debt trap, while the other provides a critique of religious obscurantism and bigotry. The play, light-hearted and facetious, presents a slice of everyday life in an academic setting. Basu has written extensively on diverse fields of economics and, more generally, the social sciences. This collection displays the full range of his wisdom and humour, and above all his celebration of everyday human follies and foibles. Memoirs, travel writing, fiction, essays, and games they are all here, and will give readers not just the pleasure of reading but also ideas and riddles to ponder over. Printed Page: 240 037509

6 Beyond Micro-credit: Putting Development Back Into Micro-Finance

Thomas Fisher and M.S. Sriram

Vistaar Publications, New Delhi, India, 2002, 8178291711 / 9788178291710, First Edition, Paperback, New, 
Micro-finance has emerged in recent years as a major tool for development and is fast growing as an international industry. This book explores how developmental goals and action can be put back into micro-finance. It sets out how micro-finance can be designed, in practice, to contribute to a wide range of developmental objectives, including social and economic security for poor people, promoting livelihoods, building democratic people`s organisations, empowering women, and changing wider systems or institutions within society. It provides a detailed discussion on the fast expanding movement of savings and credit or `self-help` groups in India, and presents a comparison of these groups with those promoted by the Grameen Bank in Bangladesh, reviewing the differences in their sustainability, outreach and impact on poor people.

7 Blocked By Caste: Economic Discrimination in Modern India

Sukhadeo Thorat And Katherine S. Newman (eds)

Oxford University Press, New Delhi, India, 2010, 0198081693 / 9780198081692, First Edition, Paperback, New, 
This book explores contemporary patterns of economic discrimination faced by Dalits and religious minorities like Muslims, and the underlying attitudinal orientations that contribute to inequality in various spheres of life. It investigates empirical evidence of discrimination by focusing on the urban labour market as well as other markets in rural areas. It also analyses discrimination in non-market transactions like access to education, primary healthcare services, and fair price shops. Through detailed case studies, the essays examine the consequences of exclusion on unequal access to business, wage-earning, health status, and educational attainments and suggest possible remedies. The introduction provides a conceptual framework and the foreword by Kaushik Basu underscores the importance of developing an interface between economics and social sciences in order to give greater visibility to research on discrimination. This book will interest students and scholars of Dalit and subaltern studies, economics, sociology, and politics. It will be an invaluable resource for policymakers and activists.

16 Communication Technology and Human Development: Recent Experiences in the Indian Social Sector

Avik Ghosh

Sage Publications, New Delhi, India, 2006, 0761934383 / 9780761934387, First Edition, Hardcover, New, New, 
The role communication can play in facilitating social change and furthering the goals of development programmes is now widely acknowledged. However, what is not so well appreciated is that the application of communication technologies in social development programmes is a complex task which requires a professional approach. Based on more than 30 years of the author`s personal experience, this book provides an understanding of the practical issues that arise in the planning and implementation of communication programmes to bring about behaviour change in the Indian context. The first section of the book provides a historical background to the evolving nature of the application of communication technology in development. Case studies of innovative applications of communication technology, both in India and abroad, are described to assist a holistic understanding of the evolution of the role of development communiation. In Section II, the author presents recent and major initiatives in the design and implementation of communication strategies in three important social sectors—literacy, population issues and rural development (including poverty alleviation). In the concluding chapter, Avik Ghosh draws attention to various critical issues and concerns in the context of India`s development. He argues that the importance of communication in facilitating social change and the need to involve local communities in such initiatives is not sufficiently appreciated by policy-makers.

17 Contested Grounds: Essays on Nature, Culture, and Power

Amita Baviskar (ed.)

Oxford University Press, New Delhi, India, 2008, 0195695852 / 9780195695854, First Edition, Hardcover, New, New, 15 x 23 Cm 
As environmental use and abuse becomes even more fiercely contested around the world, we need fresh perspectives to understand issues such as resource extraction and social conflict; community identities and environmental claims; and technology, risk, and environmental governance. Cultural politics offers a novel approach that expands and enriches political-economic analysis to explain the changing relations between states, markets, social groups and their bio-physical environment. In this volume, nine eminent scholars apply the theory and practice of a cultural politics of natural resources to spatial and temporal sites that range from petroleum fields in Nigeria to palm-oil plantations in Indonesia; from irrigation engineering in British India to contemporary environmental decision-making in the United Kingdom; from global climate change to water scarcity in Gujarat. The volume is organized around a set of keywords: waste, scarcity, security, territory, sovereignty, frontier, conflict, expertise, and community. These are significant, indicative terms whose changing meanings trace shifts in a vocabulary of cultural practices and institutions. Taken together, these related keywords map a distinctive world of meanings and chart out the terrain of the cultural politics of natural resources. 024446

32 Economic Growth In India: History And Prospect

It is a measure of the youthfulness of economics as a discipline that two centuries after the appearance of Adam Smith 's landmark treatise The Wealth of Nations, an economist has posed the question "How do economies grow? " This comprehensive study of economic growth in India is intended as a response to this question. As history, it surveys the half century from the end of colonial rule to the present; as prognosis, it focuses on what we may expect in the immediate future. Drawing upon diverse strands of theory, historical perspective, political economy, and econometrics, the book presents an eclectic and original narrative of the Indian growth experience. The main body of the book is divided into four chapters. Chapter 1 provides a critical exposition of some prominent theoretical representations of growth and a historical perspective on its drivers. The remaining three chapters provide a fresh analysis of three periods, respectively, 1950-64, 1965-91, and 1991 onwards. Presenting a favorable appraisal of the growth record of early independent India and an account of how the advantage was lost, the book argues that it is not just "more reforms " that stand in the way of sustained double-digit growth rates. The prospects for high long-term growth in India are instead linked with development of agriculture and education, particularly schooling. Further, the author proposes that inclusive growth is not just some optional extra, however desirable, but intrinsic to the prosperity of the country. The possibility of such an outcome, he argues, is tied more to the state 's capacity to govern the public institutions once created by it than its command over resources. Printed Page: 289. 037520

This book is refreshing study of some of the basic issues in the current historical debate on early Indian economy and society. It identifies major trends in the writings on early Indian economic history , and analyses the increasingly oppressive nature of ancient Indian land revenue system and the economic role of early medieval south Indian temples. The author not only makes an assessment of the growing literature on the classical phase of Indian feudalism but also provides a critique of recent studies which claim to demolish the theory of Indian feudalism and seek to replace it by the fragile Chayanovian model of peasant economy and society.

37 Economic Reforms in India and China: Emerging Issues and Challenges

B. Sudhakara Reddy (ed.)

Sage Publications, New Delhi, India, 2009, 8178298384 / 9788178298382, First Edition, Hardcover, New, New, 
The role of India and China is expanding in the global economy. A whole new array of economic and financial issues are emerging which need to be tackled if the current period of growth is to endure. The issues that need attention are: how to expand the services sector, especially financial services; how to keep pace with the incredible growth of the manufacturing sector; how to ensure the widest possible diffusion of the huge economic gains seen over the last ten years and how to provide the framework for the development of two-fifths of the human race. Economic Reforms in India and China: Emerging issues and Challenges aims at providing the goals, strategies and policies to tackle these issues. It discusses the efforts to address issues like encouraging less successful sectors of the economy that have been complicated by forces of globalization and the ever-changing realities of today's global economy and appraises issues pertaining to economic reforms. The articles explore ways to improve the well-being of the poor, to design effective structures and institutions for poverty reduction and how the reforms, in their economic, political and social dimensions can be used to tackle global developmental issues. The role of India and China is expanding in the global economy. A whole new array of economic and financial issues are emerging which need to be tackled if the current period of growth is to endure. The issues that need attention are: how to expand the services sector, especially financial services; how to keep pace with the incredible growth of the manufacturing sector; how to ensure the widest possible diffusion of the huge economic gains seen over the last ten years and how to provide the framework for the development of two-fifths of the human race. Economic Reforms in India and China: Emerging issues and Challenges aims at providing the goals, strategies and policies to tackle these issues. It discusses the efforts to address issues like encouraging less successful sectors of the economy that have been complicated by forces of globalization and the ever-changing realities of today's global economy and appraises issues pertaining to economic reforms.

40 Economy and Society in Early India: Issues and Paradigms

D.N. Jha

Munshiram Manoharlal Publishers Pvt. Ltd., New Delhi, India, 2011, 8121505526 / 9788121505529, Reprint, Hardcover, New, New, 14 Cms x 22 Cms 
This work throws a flush of multi-coloured light on the Economic Organization in Ancient India from 200 BC to 200 AD. Due to the advent of alien tribes in India, this period opened new vistas of transitional era and ventilated new air of thoughtful broodings, establishing sound venues in the economic field of India making a peep into India's ties with neighbouring and distant countries in the spheres of trade and commerce, transport and communication. The present work is not merely a survey but a microscopic and complete reexamination of the prevailing concepts including land-ownership, land-tenureship, state and economy, fiscal policy and taxation. Thus it presents a panoramic revelation of commerce and economics in history with an humble approach of intensifying the cultural heritage of India. Unlike other nations, economic conditions in India have always closely been interwoven with her socio-cultural fabric throughout the pages of history. In modern times, to speak of 'pure economics' in India will be a misnomer to a large extent. In this light, the present work should not only be looked with an academician's eye, but also from the point of view of those whose interest of study lie in researches of history as it envisage to unveil the spheres of economics and planning in modern times.

41 Economy of Colonial Orissa 1866-1947

J.K. Samal

Munshiram Manoharlal Publishers Pvt. Ltd., New Delhi, India, 2000, 81-215-0971-8 / 9788121509718, First Edition, Cloth, New, New, 14 Cms x 22 Cms 
The work provides a readable analysis of the economy of British Orissa. Princely Orissa and hill-tribes of Orissa. The impact of colonial economy combined with the consequences of fragmentation of Oriya-speaking areas brought about colossal change in the material condition of the people of Orissa. The poverty and starvation had taken root among the common mass of Orissa while a select class lived a parasitic life in abundance of wealth, thriving easy on the cheaply available labour and the back-breaking toil of the farmers and artisans. The crux of the problem was that indigenous economic system remained nearly intact, though stagnant and ossified, scarcely able to release more wealth to meet the growing demands. Even today any excursion to an Orissan village, unless modernised under the Five Year Plans, reveal to an observer that traditional economy in its structure in the system that supports the land-based people, however inadequately. This was the root cause of extreme economic backwardness of colonial Orissa. This work will provide some insight into the operation of a vital system in regional economy so that defects that still continue to plague it may be remedied towards a healthy regeneration of this system.

43 Empire of Knowledge: Culture and Plurality in the Global Economy

Vinay Lal

Vistaar Publications, New Delhi, India, 2005, 8178295954 / 9788178295954, First Edition, Paperback, New, 
Offering a dissenting perspective on the politics of knowledge, this book is a powerful critique of the intellectual and cultural assumptions that underline the current processes of development, modernization and globalization. The author demonstrates that the world as we know it today is understood largely through categories that are the product of Western knowledge systems. His critique of the existing world order and his vision of possible futures encourage the reader to engage in the study of the West. Rather than merely reversing Orientalism, such a study would create a body of knowledge about the West that would enable people to better understand both themselves and the West. This important and lucidly written book deconstructs the cultural assumptions that have emerged alongside capitalism and offers a devastating critique of the politics of knowledge at the heart of all powerbroking.

50 From Asian to Global Financial Crisis: An Asian Regulator's View of Unfettered Finance in the 1900s and 2000s

Andrew Sheng

Cambridge University Press, Cambridge, UK, 2010, 052116821X / 9780521168212, First Edition, Paperback, New, 150 x 230 Mm 
This is a unique insider account of the new world of unfettered finance. The author, an Asian regulator, examines how old mindsets, market fundamentalism, loose monetary policy, carry trade, lax supervision, greed, cronyism, and financial engineering caused both the Asian crisis of the late 1990s and the global crisis of 2008?009. This book shows how the Japanese zero interest rate policy to fight deflation helped create the carry trade that generated bubbles in Asia whose effects brought Asian economies down. The study’s main purpose is to demonstrate that global finance is so interlinked and interactive that our current tools and institutional structure to deal with critical episodes are completely outdated. The book explains how current financial policies and regulation failed to deal with a global bubble and makes recommendations on what must change. Contents Introduction 1. Things fall apart 2. Japan and the Asian crisis 3. The beam in our eyes 4. Banking: the weakest link 5. Washington consensus and the IMF 6. Thailand: the karma of globalization 7. South Korea: strong body, weak heart 8. Malaysia: the country that went her own way 9. Indonesia: from economic to political crisis 10. Hong Kong: unusual times need unusual action 11. China: rise of the dragon 12. From crisis to integration 13. The new world of financial engineering 14. What's wrong with financial regulation? 15. The global financial meltdown 16. A crisis of governance Appendices: From Asian to global crisis: chronology of notable events Abbreviations and acronyms. Printed Pages: 488 with 16 b/w illustrations and 62 tables. 033172
