Description

Now in paperback edition, this book surveys the actual experience of the last decade to argue that this strategy has not just failed to deliver sustained growth, but has had damaging consequences from the point of view of employment, poverty alleviation and equity.

The explicit adoption of a neoliberal reform programme in mid-1991 by the India government was the start of a period of intensive economic liberalization and changed attitudes towards government intervention in the economy. It covers a wide range of areas, including fiscal and monetary policy, privatization and the experience with foreign direct investment, and analyses the political economy of the reform process.

REVIEW

A painstaking work of immense importance an excellent survey in the debates and deliberations on economic reforms in India, The Market That Failed should have an important place.
-The Hindu
