The Institute of Economy and Development of the Observer Research Foundation has an ambitious policy research plan. It aims at concretizing the idea that higher growth trajectories for India are a realization objective. Knowledge driven policies would in this view power a growth oriented mass polity and a governance process. The competitive edge of the Indian economy, embedded in its labour and worker advantages and its received skills, would unleash themselves in global markets.Policies would work out strategic transitional paths, overcoming received constraints, capitalizing on perceived advantages and working out methods of leapfrogging, technologically and organizationally wherever necessary, as the millennium beckons. An outward looking global view, the resilience of a democratic society in overcoming barriers to development, traditional community strengths and the legacy of a freedom movement in terms of the ability to organize to overcome odds would all aid the process.
