Overview

In a world riddled with asymmetries and disparity, the economic achievement of India and China shows that it is possible to find a path that, despite all its inherent imperfections, can take developing nations towards development. The two countries are recent reminders of an invaluable lesson of our times: development does not need perfect systems, but it is the outcome of strategic thinking, smart implementation and efficient governance. This book presents an exploration of the economic ascent of India and China, and offers an alternative approach to development that emanates from the empirical evidence from these two countries in recent decades.

These were time bound targets that were specified in the year 2000 with the fundamental objective of addressing extreme poverty in its many dimensions.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

'This well-researched, thought-provoking and documented book is bound to generate a considerable amount of interest in government, business and the academic world in general and the student community in particular.' – S. Divakara, Director-General, Forum of Free Enterprise, India

 
'To write a book on such a well-trodden and controversial subject as globalization and successfully differentiate it from other works is no small feat. That is precisely what Mahtaney accomplishes in this comparative study of India's and China's economic development and its implications for future development of other emerging economies... Mahtaney makes illuminating distinctions among growth, increase in per capita real GDP, and development, and raises important issues concerning the future of globalization and economic integration.' - CHOICE
