Overview

Economic Reform and the Liberalisation of the Indian Economy: Essays in Honour of Richard T. Shand

Indian, Japanese, and Australian economists assess the extent to which India has implemented the correct reform measures to enhance competitive efficiency enough to promote economic growth, and identify what further reforms need to be carried out. They cover Indian economic reforms in the East Asian context, what type of agricultural reform is needed, the impact of agricultural reform on poverty, and what type of monetary and fiscal reform is needed. The 13 papers have been selected and revised from presentations at the conference Second Generation Reforms, held in Chennai in December 1999. Shand is an Australian agricultural economist.
