About the book

Many believe today that poverty, illiteracy and ill-healthafflict India because its leadership ignored them infavour of growth for its own sake; that the economicreforms that focused on growth have failed to help the poor,especially the socially disadvantaged; that any gains claimedin poverty alleviation derive from the use of progressivelylower poverty lines; and that even if gains have been made,with one in two children suffering from malnutrition, reformshave done precious little to improve health outcomes.

In this definitive book on economic reforms in India sinceIndependence, Bhagwati and Panagariya decisively demolishthese and other myths, which critics use as weapons to woundand maim the reforms. Their basic premise: Only growth canprovide sufficient revenues to lift the masses out of poverty.
