What Kapila’s book shows is the richness of the analysis of the Indian economy that an undergraduate student is privileged to be exposed to... Kapila’s volume includes essays that record both the upside and the downside of the Indian growth story... rightly ends with an emphasis on the importance of investment in human capabilities for a country of young people.”<br /> &nbsp;&nbsp; &nbsp;<strong>— Sanjaya Baru,&nbsp;</strong><br /> &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; director for Geo-Economics and Strategy at</p> <p>&nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; the International Institute of Strategic Studies</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>“The annual edition of Dr. Uma Kapila’s Indian Economy since &nbsp;Independence has become a staple, annually updated, reference for University students throughout the country, for aspirants for the civil service and other examinations, and &nbsp;for all those interested in a single comprehensive source of information, and analysis by a galaxy of scholars, on the Indian economy.
