India - Alternative Economic Survey, 2003-2004: Liberalization sans Social Justice
Authored by Indian scholars, journalists, activists and trade union leaders, this volume provides the evidence for how the market-friendly current policies being pursued by successive Indian governments are threatening the socio-economic fabric of the country. The book reveals how false is the optimistic impression of development portrayed by the official India Economic Surveys, and tries to evolve the elements of alternative, people-friendly policy regime.
