Essays on Indian Economic Policy and Institutional Reform
These essays first appeared as columns in the Financial Express, one of India’s leading financial dailies. Together, they provide what I hope is an integrated perspective on where Indian policy and institutional reform is going, and what remains to be accomplished. Each piece is self-contained, but several themes of institutional reform, especially of governance, run through them. Many of the issues raised are long run problems that transcend the specific time at which the pieces may have been written. These articles also draw on academic empirical and theoretical research wherever possible. Thus, I hope these essays together have some lasting value.
