In view of Manmohan Singh's key role in spearheading India's development process, this volume in his honour, brings together a collection of essays on the economic reforms initiated in1991 and explores policies, frameworks, and strategies to fully realize their potential. Significantly revised and updated, this new edition: * traces India's development experience and transition to an open economy;* addresses key issues in India's economy such as poverty and inequality, monetary policy, agriculture, infrastructure development, fiscal stability, and financial liberalization; and* highlights the important changes and recent developments in India's economy.
