2 Kaushik Basu
Collected Papers in Theoretical Economics: Volume I: Development, Markets, and Institutions
Oxford University Press; New Delhi, India; 2005; 0195667611 / 9780195667615; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
The field of development economics has witnessed dramatic change over the past two or three decades. The subject, though still among the most challenging sub-disciplines of economics, has drawn on the benefits of the rise of game theoretic methods, strategic analysis, and the availability of new data-sets. It not only entails the use of good eocnomic theory but also requires that the researchers keep an anthropologist's eye on reality. This collection illustrates Basu's method of research well as it comments on a range of contentious subjects, such as the design of policy to combat child labour, the role of social norms in explaining why certain unwanted economic institutions persist, and how literacy ought to be measured. Besides providing easy access for students of economics especially in developing countries--to the author's major papers in the fiel d of theoretical development--the book will be of immense interest to professional economists, policy-makers, and economic journalists.

3 Kaushik Basu (ed.)
India's Emerging Economy: Performance and Prospects in the 1990s and Beyond
Oxford University Press; New Delhi, India; 2005; 0195677900 / 9780195677904; First Edition; Hard Cover; New; New; 
India's economy over the last decade looks in many ways like a success story after a major economic crisis in 19 91, followed by bold reform measures, the economy has experienced a rapid economic growth rate, more foreign investment, and a boom in the information technology sector. Yet many in the country still suffer from crushing poverty, and social and political unrest remains a problem. These essays by leading academics, policymakers, and industrialists examine India's recent economic sucesses and their social and cultural context. India's rate of economic growth after the 1991 reforms were instituted reached a remarkable 7 percent for three consecutive years, from 1994 to 1997. Several contributors to the volume ask what this means for the nation as a whole. In his essay 'Democracy and Secularism in India', Amartya Sen argues that economic progress is not the only way to measure a nation's performance. Other contributors examine the actual effect India's economic growth has had on reducing poverty and recommend policies to empower the poor. The essays also address such issues as globali zation and the vulnerabilities and opportunities it creates, India's experience with monetary and fiscal reform, the rapid growt.

6 Kaushik Basu (ed.)
The Oxford Companion to Economics in India (Revised Edition)
Oxford University Press; New Delhi, India; 2009; Revised Edition; Paperback; New; 
In today’s complex and fast evolving environment, understanding India’s economy is not just an intellectual challenge, but, with the country emerging as a major global player, also a requirement. This unique volume, the first comprehensive resource of its kind on the contemporary Indian economy, aims to address this need. Culled from the collective wisdom and experience of over 200 distinguished contributors, that include economists, business leaders, policymakers, and analysts, the Companion covers the evolution of the Indian economy from relative obscurity to an emergent global force. The more than 200 entries span the recent cover stories of India’s high growth, leadership in software and information technology, and outsourcing success, and also document the backwaters—the widespread poverty, farmer suicides, child labour, and the large and impoverished informal sector that houses a majority of India’s labour force. The revised edition, a testimonial to the dynamism that epitomizes ‘the Indian economy’, includes several new topics that have grown in significance since the first edition was planned; and several revised entries on topics that have undergone rapid transformation during the short time since the first edition was written.

8 Kaushik Basu
The Retreat of Democracy and Other Itinerant Essays on Globalization, Economics, and India
Permanent Black; New Delhi, India; 2007; 8178241919 / 9788178241913; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
This accessible and stimulating book on some of the major political and economic issues of our time will delight all readers and astonish anyone who thinks economics is unconnected with literary elegance. An eminent Professor of Economics with extensive research in theoretical economics at Cornell, Kaushik Basu has over the past decade also consolidated his already considerable reputation as a writer who can explain complex issues with disarming ease. This book contains an expanded and reworked selection of his best journalistic writings on politics and economic themes since the late 1990s. The book begins with the author’s widely-cited essays on globalization and democracy. These argue that while economic globalization is occurring at breakneck speed and offers large potential benefits, political globalization has been painfully slow. This represents a dangerous combination of events, a byproduct of which can be the retreat of global democracy and the emergence of political instability. The book goes on to traverse a wide terrain—ideas in economics, anthropological observations on social norms, the role of culture, and travel in India and abroad. Two recurring themes crisscross the essays. First, that the ultimate objective of policymaking must be the progress of the most disadvantaged; yet simultaneously that to ignore market laws and individual incentives is to court failure. Second, that for the successful crafting of economic policy it is important to recognize markets as embedded in specific cultures and social norms. Included here—alongside essays on major economists such as Amartya Sen and Joseph Stiglitz—are humorous essays on everyday encounters with Indian bureaucracy. These function in part as allegories of the Kafkaesque stranglehold of political structures on the individual. They caution us against the presumptions of individual freedom on which traditional economics is founded. Printed Pages: 292. 031573
