After experiencing stagnation for much of the post-independence period, India has shown considerable dynamism in processes and outcomes since the mid-eighties. The post-reform Indian Economy has defied established economic patterns and in the process created a few paradoxes. This book aims toidentify policies, institutions and incentives that have worked, and constraints that have emerged in India's growth prospects. More than underdevelopment, the book analyses the bottlenecks that emerge as change occurs, to minimize the chances of being trapped into the dated habits of thought. It takes opportunity from rapidly transforming Indian economy to analyse out-of-equilibrium behaviour and understand the dynamics ofnon-conventional growth path.
Ashima Goyal is Professor at Indira Gandhi Institute of Development Research has published widely on institutional and open economy macroeconomics, international finance and governance and has participated in research projects with ADB, DEA-GOI, GDN, RBI, UNESCAP, and WB.
