Overview

Economic growth does not always add up to development. In a world riddled with asymmetries and disparity, the economic achievement of India and China shows a path that, despite all its inherent imperfections, can take poorer 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. As we stand on the threshold of the next wave of globalization it could bring in its wake the next frontier of development. However, there is a fundamental challenge, perhaps the foremost concern of our time. This arises from the glaring need to bridge the gap between growth, globalism and sustainable development. In this context the book presents an exploration that emanates from the empirical evidence which is pertinent to the ascent of India and China and the impact that globalization has had during recent decades.

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
