Financial Policies and Everyday Life
The Indian Context
About the Book
<p>After a long career in central banking, the distinguished economist S.S. Tarapore <br /> has been writing columns in financial dailies. There was a felt need to reach out to a <br /> wider audience in a regional language. During the period October 2005-August 2008, <br /> he turned to writing a regular column in the widely circulating Gujarati newspaper, the Divya Bhaskar.<br /> This volume brings to the English speaking readers, for the first time, his writings in <br /> the Divya Bhaskar on monetary, fiscal, banking and external sector management, but essentially from <br /> the viewpoint of the aam aadmi. The volume would be of interest to the general reader who wishes to <br /> stay abreast of developments in financial policies and it would also be of interest to policymakers,<br /> opinion makers, bankers, academics and students.</p> <p> </p>
