The problem of fiscal deficit reduction and its success and failure during the various phases of the reform process has been the focus of attention in public finance. The role of balance of trade and balance of payments and the problem of balance of payments crisis has been analysed.

A survey of the Indian Economy and its movement over the last five decades marked by the failures and success of the planning effort have received adequate attention. The promises of the Liberalisation, Privatisation and Globalisation model of development and their actual realization has been discussed at length.
