About the Authors
  • This book brings together the latest research findings from leading economists from India and abroad on ways to revive and sustain higher growth rates in India. Divided into five parts, the first part empirically examines the various factors that affect poverty and shows that growth is crucial to poverty reduction. The second part investigates the factors responsible for sustaining industrial growth including skill formation and innovation. Part III analyses the critical role of monetary policy and shows that it is not very effective in the presence of commodity price shocks and supply constraints. It explains why RBI could not effectively control inflation and why the government must play a crucial supporting role in controlling inflation. Part IV then analyses various supply constraints to growth including agriculture, energy security, social and physical infrastructure and discusses how to deal with them effectively. Part V analyses the labour and financial market policies.

    • Discusses the importance of maintaining high economic growth in India to escape the low income trap
    • Examines various factors that affect poverty in India
    • Investigates the factors responsible for sustaining industrial growth
