India's remarkable economic growth in recent years has made it one of the fastest-growing economies in the world. Its rapid growth, has, however, been accompanied by widening regional disparities, poverty, malnutrition, and socio-political instability. Understanding India's dualistic development process, and the emergence of the Indian economic miracle are crucial in solving the obstacles India faces in transforming itself into a modern twenty-first-century economy. This text features research on core topics to understand the Indian economic miracle and the key debates confronting the Indian economy. The topics are firmly directed at development issues that are germane to India's experience. The book moves beyond traditional boundaries by featuring areas of research that will be important in the future. Indeed, one of its purposes is to set an academic standard for current and future research on the Indian economy. The text is divided into seven major sections featuring contributions on a host of issues. These range from India's historical development before and after 1947; tackling poverty through innovative public policy; industrialization; implications of the demographic transition; governance and institutional reform; domestic macroeconomic reform as this relates to fiscal rules, monetary policy transmission, banking sector reform, and trade reform; and India's interaction with the world economy as this relates to the WTO, financial crises, and globalization. The final article reflects upon an agenda for economic research in the twenty-first century.
