Planning, Poverty and Political Economy of Reforms: A Tribute to Suresh Tendulkar

T. Srinivasan

Indian Economic Review, 2013, vol. 48, issue 1, 1-32

Abstract: This paper pays tribute to Professor Suresh Tendulkar’s contribution and scholarship to economics, economic-policy making, and economic reforms in India. The paper’s scope is by no means exhaustive, and primarily focuses on his contributions on economic planning in India, the political economy of economic reforms, and his important conceptual and policy-relevant work on poverty measurement. The paper also presents results on empirical exercises comparing trends in inequality, and various poverty lines in India in the recent past. The paper concludes with policy observations on economic reforms in India, and directions for further empirical research on poverty.
