Globalization
India's Adjustment Experience

First Edition

July 2005 | 282 pages | SAGE Publications Pvt. Ltd
In this comprehensive appraisal of Indian economic reforms, the author recounts how reforms were initiated and how they unfolded in stages since 1991. He analyzes all the components of the structural adjustment programme including in the agrarian, industrial, banking, public sector, fiscal reforms, trade, environmental and labour sectors.

In keeping with his ideological and political convictions, the author questions the benefits of the reforms and argues that an uncritical acceptance of IMF/World Bank/WTO/ conditions has not served to benefit the majority of Indian society.

"Dasgupta has written an excellent book on the conditionality—the structural adjustment and stabilization policies—imposed by the World Bank for granting loans to India in 1991. . . . Well written, this volume will be highly useful to advanced students of economic development in general and Indian economy in particular, as well as to policy makers. Highly recommended."
