Inclusiveness in India —A Strategy for Growth and Equality—
Palgrave Macmillan IDE-JETRO Series
This book examines the structural aspects of India's Inclusive Growth Strategy (IGS). It takes a multi-dimensional look at IGS and sheds light on many issues that have yet to be fully scrutinized.
A team of internationally recognised contributors examine the issues of infrastructure, education and health, finance, gender and minorities, urban slums, land markets and the case of the state of Bihar. The contributors analyse IGS in India from an interdisciplinary perspective to illuminate the issues faced in realising the challenging objective of IGS, namely overcoming inherent social inequality in the process of economic growth.
This book is indispensable reading for undergraduates and postgraduates concentrating on South Asian studies as well as those interested in development economics and economic growth.
