Agriculture Growth and Equity: A Micro-Level Experience

By C.H. Shah,Sudarshan Iyengar,Vimal Shah

Concept Publishing Company (P) Ltd., 1991. Hardcover. New. Rapid development of agriculture has been a key objective of India’s planning efforts since 1950. Green revolution, ushered in the early 1960s by adoption of policies to accelerate the diffusion of technological change, has helped the country to achieve a degree of self-sufficiency in the production of at least the staple foodgrains. Critics of the green revolution have been concerned about its uneven spread and the extent to which it bypasses the poor and aggravates inequalities in living conditions. It is not possible to provide a conclusive answer to their doubts on the basis of cross- sectional studies. A longitudinal study can provide a rich data base for understanding the processes and outcomes of spread of technological change. The present book reports on a quasi-longitudinal study based on an in-depth survey in the same 28 villages of Matar Taluka of Kheda District in Gujarat State at three points of time, 1929-30, 1965-66 and 1974-75. The last two studies undertaken by the two senior authors of this book have built on the celebrated study of the well-known Gandhian economist, Dr. J.C. Kumarappa. Results of the second resurvey inspire optimism about the spread effects of green revolution on the level of living of different groups of population. Matar experience suggests that a substantial change in technology is essential if its benefits are to spread and percolate to the weaker sections in the face of various institutional barriers.

Advanced Microeconomics, Vol. 1

By K. R. Gupta

Atlantic Publishers & Distributors (P) Ltd, 2009. Hardcover. New. Microeconomics is a branch of economics that studies how individuals, households and firms and some states make decisions to allocate limited resources, typically in markets where goods or services are being bought and sold. It examines how these decisions and behaviours affect the supply and demand for goods and services, which determines prices; and how prices, in turn, determine the supply and demand of goods and services. One of the objectives of microeconomics is to analyze market mechanisms that establish relative prices amongst goods and services and allocation of limited resources amongst many alternative uses. It analyzes market failure, where markets fail to produce efficient results, as well as describes the theoretical conditions needed for perfect competition. Significant fields of study in microeconomics include general equilibrium, markets under asymmetric information, choice under uncertainty and the elasticity of products within the market system. The book Advanced Microeconomics has a wide coverage and deals with all the important topics on the subject generally required by students of B.A. (Hons.), M.A., M.Com., M.B.A., C.A., I.C.W.A. and C.S. It is an exhaustive and elaborate presentation of all the concepts along with various theories and laws. The style of the book is simple, lucid and easily accessible. Diagramatic and algebraic presentations are given wherever required. It also covers modern topics like Games Theory. The book would be found useful by students and teachers of this subject. It will also be a rewarding and enriching reading to those interested in the study of methods, nature and scope of microeconomics. Printed Pages: 440. Advanced Microeconomics, Vol. 1K. R.

India in the New South Asia: Strategic, Military and Economic Concerns in the Age of Nuclear Diplomacy

By B.M. Jain

Viva Books Private Limited, 2011. Softcover. New. Description: The new South Asia differs fundamentally form the old South Asia of the Cold War era. Undeniably, the region’s geopolitical, geostrategic and security landscape have undergone a major transformation following the nuclear weapon tests carried out by India and Pakistan in May 1998, and the events of 9/11. B.M. Jain here argues that these devel­opments have, on the one hand, contributed to enhancing Pakistan’s geostrategic impor­tance to the United States; fighting a global War on terror with the military and logistical support of Pakistan. However, on the other, India’s loss of strategic pre-eminence with the attainment nuclear parity by Pakistan has complicated the New Delhi-Islamabad relationship on the interconnected issues of Kashmir and cross-border terrorism. Jain addresses how the unprecedented terror attacks in Mumbai in November 2008 whipped up war hysteria in both India and Pakistan, thereby jeopardizing South Asian security and stability as well as threaten­ing global peace and security. Furthermore, it critically examines India’s relations with neighbouring countries in light of the lat­est developments, such as the Maoist-led government in Nepal, fragile democracy in Pakistan, the ongoing ethnic conflict between LTTE and Sri Lankan government forces, and the rise of anti-India radical militancy in Ban­gladesh. In light of this, the book re-evaluates India’s security and strategic policies in the new South Asia of the post 9/11 era as well as making a reappraisal of its turbulent ties with Pakistan, Nepal, Bangladesh and Sri Lanka by taking into account geostrategic concerns and interests of the United States, Russia and China in the region. This book will be invaluable for public policy makers and strategic analysts who are work­ing hard towards realizing the vision of a democratic, secure and peaceful South Asia, as well as for the academic and student com­munity engaged in the study of India and South Asia. Contents: South Asia in the Global Age • The Post-Cold War Geopolitical Shift in South Asia • India’s Nuclear Policy • India and Pakistan: Issues, Options, and Future Directions • India and other South Asian Countries: Political, Security, and Strategic Dimensions • India, the United States, and South Asia: Emerging Trends and Strategic Challenges • Rise of China: Strategic Implications for South Asia and India’s Response • Conclusion.

World Population Policies 2005

By United Nations

Academic Foundation/United Nations, 2006. Softcover. New. The publication provides a summary overview of population policies and dynamics for each of the United Nations Member and non-member States for which data are available at mid-decade for the 1970s, 1980s, 1990s and for 2005. The core information included in the monitoring of population policies encompasses two basic components: Government perceptions of population size and growth, population age structure and spatial distribution, and of the demographic components of fertility, mortality and migration which affect them. For each of these variables, is the level or trend viewed as a significant policy issue, and is the prevailing level or rate of change seen as too high, too low or acceptable/satisfactory in relation to other social and economic conditions? Government policies with respect to each variable. Is the policy of the Government to raise, lower or maintain the current level of the variable? Has the Government actively intervened to influence the variable and, if so, by what means? This publication shows, on a country-by-country basis, the evolution of Government views and policies from 1976 to 2005 with respect to population size and growth, population age structure, fertility and family planning, health and mortality, spatial distribution and international migration—within the context of demographic, social and economic change. The material is presented in the form of two-page data sheets: the first page contains population policy data for each country for 1976, 1986, 1996 and 2005, and the second page provides population indicators for the corresponding years.

These measures will help in better mobilization and allocation of scarce resources for tackling and containing local problems effectively. Experience of the developing world indicates and the present indepth study supports the findings that apait from scientific dlsaggregation and allocation of resources, new patterns and orientation of administrative behaviour have to be developed to make the planning effort more result-oiiented. The present analytical explosion, the first of its kind in the context of the Third World, fills an important gap in the existing literature on development planning and offer?, valuable cues to a variety of searching questions which have been troubling the planners and policy makers for years. This study proves the hypothesis that better the understanding of the variety of constraints and considerations which go into integration and coordination in planning and implementation of various development schemes greater will be the utility of the schemes in the context of the development effort.

International Trade and India (Oxford India Short Introductions)

By Parthapratim Pal

Oxford University Press, 2014. Softcover. New. International trade has influenced our lives in more ways than we recognize. This short introduction brings an exciting overview to this complex phenomenon from pre-modern to contemporary times. Beginning with a brief discussion about the theoretical aspects of international trade, the book moves on to explore how its nature has undergone various changes over the years. This study maps India`s engagement with global commerce in the years before and after Independence and analyses how India, once a big trading nation, was transformed into a country which largely exhibited characteristics of a low-income developing country. Tracing the journey from the cautious approach following Independence, to its warming up to globalization since the mid-1980s, and economic liberalization in 1991, this lucid account of India`s relationship with international trade will equally appeal to academics, policymakers, and general readers.
