Growth, Development, and Diversity: India's Record since Liberalization

Edited by K. Pushpangadan and Vudayagiri Balasubramanyam

in OUP Catalogue from Oxford University Press

Abstract: Most states in India have experienced relatively high growth rates since 1991 when extensive economic liberalization measures were introduced. However, there does not seem to be a recognizable correlation between growth rates of the states and their development record. This volume, by distinguished economists and policymakers, analyses the contribution of liberalization-induced growth to development. Combining economic theory with rigorous empirical investigations, this volume identifies regional disparities within and across states-Kerala, Karnataka, Andhra Pradesh, and Bihar. It also examines specific development indicators, namely, child labour, nutrition, education, and growth in employment, trade, and productivity since liberalization. Covering a wide range of topical issues, the volume offers suggestions for policy at the state and sectoral levels to make growth inclusive in India. Available in OSO:
