1 Amit Bhaduri
Employment and Development: Essays from an Unorthodox Perspective
Oxford University Press; New Delhi, India; 2006; 0195680820 / 9780195680829; First Edition; Hard Cover; New; New; 
Amit Bhaduri's distinction as an economic theorist lies in challenging mainstream theory in a precise yet compelling way. The essays in this collection, written by the author over the last quarter century, mark a fresh approach to one of the most important economic problem of our time. Why poverty and unemployment, as two sides of the same problem, appear and persist, and are often bypassed by the process of development? The author looks at this problem from a multidimensional perspective. In the first section he discusses some of the theoretical issues involved, and point to oversights in standard theorizing on the subject. The second section draws out the connection between development of a predominantly agrarian economy and unemployment. The final section deals with the problem in the context of transitional economies of east Europe and draws lessons. In particular the essays highlight the errors from the use of orthodox theories relied on by the IMF and the World Bank. By rejecting the uncritical and mechanical acceptance of globalization as the remedy to all evils, the author invites the reader to think independently, and thereby stimulates argument and debate. 019703

3 Amit Bhaduri
Malignant Growth
Aakar Books; New Delhi, India; 9789350023952; Hardcover; New; New; 
This book argues that the ideology of high growth which has been adopted as the dogma by successive governmentsat the centre and states are excluding the poor, disenfranchising them from the growth process and destroying their livelihood without creating alternative jobs. This process has distorted parliamentary democracy and reduced it to a level of no choice. The polity's inbuilt insensivity to poverty and rising inequality has in recent years turned into arrogant defiance of the poor and is now turning into an assault on them, dispossessing them of their land and livelihood, community and culture. Of late, this process is increasingly assuming the form of narrow jingoistic majoritarianism. But it is not all that new as a streak of this narrowness could be seen present in the mainstream nationalism that took shape around the anti-colonial struggle and continued through the course of post-independence development process. The book also outlines a proposition to rethink development, democracy and also nationalism. Printed Pages: 151. 111709
