Accelarating Growth and Job Creation in South Asia
Oxford University Press; New Delhi, India; 2009; 0198060041 / 9780198060048; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
In recent times, South Asia has attracted global attention for demonstrating rapid growth. What is not so well known is that this is the least integrated region in the world. South Asia has opened its door to the rest of the world but remains closed to its neighbours. Poor market integration, weak connectivity, and a history of conflict have created ‘two South Asias’. The first is dynamic, urbanized, globally integrated, and rapidly growing; the second is rural, impoverished, and lagging. Accelerating Growth and Job Creation in South Asia provides fresh perspectives on these issues by exploring the link between regional integration, economic growth, and job creation. The outcome of a high-level dialogue between the private sector, political leadership, policymakers, and academics in South Asia, this volume is an important contribution to the debates in this area. The volume is organized along three themes—overview of South Asia’s growth opportunities and challenges; sources of growth and policies for the future; and the significance of regional cooperation in promoting growth. The essays combine quantitative data with analytical rigour to provide innovative suggestions in terms of policies and institutions that can propel South Asia towards higher growth, while promoting inclusiveness. 027591

India's Long-term Growth Experience: Lessons and Prospects
Sage Publications; New Delhi, India; 2007; 076193605X / 9780761936053; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
India’s rapid growth since 1980 is transforming it into a modern economic power. Measured in nominal US dollars, India’s economy has risen from a low rank of 50 in 1979 to 12th position in 2003. In income-to-purchasing power parity, India ranked fourth in the world in 2003, behind only the United States, China, and Japan. Although still classified as a low-income country in terms of per capita nominal US dollars because of its huge population, if present rates of growth continue, India should reach low middle income status by the end of this decade. Due to the closed nature of the Indian economy until the 1980s India continues to be a small player in the arena of international trade and investment flows, But with the recent opening up of the economy and rapid growth in the export of goods and services, India is definitely gaining strength. The tremendous surge in the export of services since 2001 is drawing international attention, inducing many IT-based global services to move to India. Also, private capital flows – including foreign direct investment – which were initially very limited, are now showing dynamism. During the 1970s, the debate in India centered on how to improve upon the historical 3 percent annual growth rate of the economy. Few would have predicted that this “sleeping giant” would wake up to attain – and sustain – an average growth rate of about 6 percent per annum for over 25 years. In fact, with 7.9 percent growth during 2002–05, there is increasing optimism about the economy achieving further growth. This situation has fueled a very lively debate in India, primarily on two aspects. The first concerns the factors underlying India’s long-term growth and the other relates to the sustainability of this growth. Sadiq Ahmed reviews the debate in the context of India’s long-term growth experience, opportunities, and challenges and examines the factors that helped to achieve rapid economic growth during the past 25 years. He draws on his findings to analyze the main constraints that are likely to affect the country’s growth in the future and highlight the policies that are needed to ease them.

Job Creation and Poverty Reduction in India: Towards Rapid and Sustained Growth
Sage Publications; New Delhi, India; 2008; 0761936513 / 9780761936510; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
Rapid growth since 1980 has transformed India from the world's 50th ranked economy in nominal US dollars to the 12th largest in 2003. When income is measured with regard to purchasing power parity, the Indian economy occupies 4th place, after the United States, Japan, and China. Along with growing incomes, India's increasingly outward orientation and the growing optimism about its economy has led to a sweeping rise in international investors' interest. At the same time evidence suggests that income inequality is rising and the gap in average per capita income between the rich and poor states is growing. Election results at the national and state level suggest that unless the issue of growing income inequality and inequality in standard of living is tackled upfront, there is a risk that the economic reform momentum might slow down. If this happens, growth will suffer. This book provides an in-depth treatment of growth and employment issues in India. It reviews India's long-term growth experience, emerging constraints and challenges, and the way forward for sustaining rapid growth along with more and better employment. Specifically, the book identifies ways in which investment can be improved to raise productivity and reduce the cost of doing business, thereby promoting domestic and foreign private investment. It looks at the growth and productivity challenges of agriculture and suggests policies that will help raise farm productivity and incomes. It explains the reason for the low overall employment elasticity of past growth and why there has been limited expansion of good jobs, and concludes by suggesting critical reform options for increasing employment.

Promoting Economic Cooperation in South Asia: Beyond SAFTA
Sage Publications; New Delhi, India; 2010; 8132103114 / 9788132103110; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
Promoting Economic Cooperation in South Asia: Beyond SAFTA examines the distinct development dichotomy that exists in South Asia and tries to find a workable solution to bridge this gap. In spite of rapid economic growth since 1980, there is extensive poverty and inequality in South Asia. This dichotomy has two faces: one is highly urbanized and well-linked to global markets and the other is rural, isolated from the global economy and growing very slowly. The large bulk of South Asia’s poor live in the latter environment. The book brings together perspectives from academics, the private sector, civil society and policy makers. Using solid empirical evidence and sound analysis, it stresses that in addition to policy and institutional reforms aimed at removing domestic constraints to growth and job creation, market integration and regional cooperation ought to be key elements of a strategy for removing the dichotomy and eliminating poverty in the longer term. Delving into major political economic issues of the SAARC region, the book analyses SAFTA, bilateral FTAs, transportation, regional integration, regulatory mechanisms, food prices, labour and employment, and tourism. It also provides a political economic analysis of why past cooperation efforts have not worked and how better cooperation can be achieved in specific areas. It looks at the many policy and institutional constraints that contribute to the present state and have made South Asia one of the least integrated regions of the world. The book will be a very useful reference for researchers, scholars and bilateral and multilateral financial institutions and donor groups interested in South Asia’s development. Policy makers and think tanks focusing on economics, political science and international relations will also find it beneficial. Printed Pages: 472. 031071
