Show Summary Details

Preview

The focus of this interview is the Indian economy and its challenges and uncertainties. Amit Bhaduri states that although India has performed better and has maintained a steady growth rate, it has never tried growth from below. The interview looks at the agrarian sector of the economy, Bhaduri's three-step analyses of the changes in the political economy of India, and the reforms that were initiated by Manmohan Singh. It ends by discussing the initiation of the second generation reforms that would enable the Indian manufacturing industry to capitalize on global opportunities and drive the growth of the Indian economy to the next level.
