India Emerging: The Reality Checks supplies a modern approach to understanding the dichotomy between growth and development. This book examines three key areas: the high growth sectors of India’s economy, those sectors that have been bypassed in the growth process, and schemes and policies that will see the benefits of economic growth alleviate poverty. Suggesting various solutions to India's development problems and investigating issues such as philanthropy, the role of government programs, and migration, this work will be beneficial to development economists and policy experts.
