Description

Bringing together essays by 23 well-known Sri Lankan scholars, this comprehensive volume discusses the evolution of Sri Lanka’s economic policies from 1977 onwards, the ideology governing this evolution, the debates on policy, and the key economic issues confronting contemporary Sri Lanka. The book covers all segments of Sri Lanka’s economy.

REVIEWS

This festschrift honours Gamani Corea, one of Sri Lanka’s top economists, and takes a thorough look at the state’s development and political ideology. Its 522 pages are crammed with information.
-Businessworld

Although Sri Lanka is a small economy, this book holds up a mirror to India’s planning process, It is enthralling to read just how much in tune with import-substitution was Sri Lanka, and how mistrusted was the invisible hand, The book covers all the professional areas of Corea’s interest like central banking, the role of the public sector, exchange rates, and export pessimism.
