Studies on international competitiveness have tended to focus primarily on factors such as productivity, costs and technological capabilities, largely ignoring the role of financial factors. In this book the authors offer a fuller account of the determinants of international competitiveness. Using India as a case study, this well-written, concise book covers everything one needs to know to understand how a country becomes internationally competitive, Showing that reforms that pertain to the real sector alone, such as industrial deregulation and trade reforms, are not enough to enhance a country`s competitiveness, the text makes a compelling case for complementary financial sector reforms. Of interest to academics studying international trade, industrial economics and development economics, this book is also guaranteed to be extremely useful for professional economists and those involved with policy making in developed and developing countries.
