India's Long Road: The Search for Prosperity

Vijay Joshi


India’s future career has been the subject of many extravagant predictions and hopes. In this book, Vijay Joshi argues that the foundations of rapid and high-quality economic growth in India are distinctly shaky. He analyses the political economy of the country’s recent faltering performance, and charts the course that should be followed to achieve widely-shared prosperity.

Keywords: India, economic growth, liberalization and privatization, state capacity and corruption, employment, macroeconomic stability, education and health care, environment, international economic relations, basic income and poverty
