Description

This volume examines the twin phenomena of liberalization and globalization and the complex economic issues thrown up by them. It explores the resulting interlinkages to derive policy implications for the Indian economy. In this text, critical issues relating to globalization are presented in a compact yet rigorous manner using the basic principles of environmental studies, international trade theory, industrial organization, and public economics.

A basic textbook for undergraduate students of economics and management, the volume is also an important resource for advanced graduate students in international business and development economics. Teachers and researchers in the area of international economics will find in the book a useful teaching and research tool for a comprehensive analysis of a fairly complex phenomenon.

EXCERPTS FROM REVIEWS

Students would benefit a lot if they learn from this book how the theories can be used to understand reality, the book contains a lot of information on institutional details that are relevant to policy-making. It is really refreshing to see a book written in India, which makes the connection between theory and policy quite explicit.
-Economic and Political Weekly

The focus of the book is mainly on non-financial sectors. But the need for adequate regulation in the financial sector has been duly stressed in the proper context.
