The volume is organized into three parts:* An overview of the arguments and approaches of the orthodox and the structuralist macroeconomics used extensively in the book. * An analysis of the country's main macroeconomic developments, starting from the 1990-1 economic crisis that forced the government to abandon the erstwhile policy stance and adopt a programme of liberalization and reforms. The focus is on two themes-the role of services in India's growth processand analytical-cum-policy issues related to the country's inflationary experience. * An assessment of the critical role of infrastructural investment in macro performance of the Indian economy.
