Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0198077998, Hardcover)

Most states in India have experienced relatively high growth rates since 1991 when extensive economic liberalization measures were introduced. However, there does not seem to be a recognizable correlation between growth rates of the states and their development record. This volume, by distinguished economists and policymakers, analyses the contribution of liberalization-induced growth to development.

Combining economic theory with rigorous empirical investigations, this volume identifies regional disparities within and across states--Kerala, Karnataka, Andhra Pradesh, and Bihar. It also examines specific development indicators, namely, child labor, nutrition, education, and growth in employment, trade, and productivity since liberalization. Covering a wide range of topical issues, the volume offers suggestions for policy at the state and sectoral levels to make growth inclusive in India.
