Publisher: Edward Elgar Publishing | 2006-06-02 | ISBN: 1840649879 | PDF | 295 pages | 1.98 MB
Recent acceleration of the Indian economic growth rate from six to eight per cent has sparked worldwide speculation that India is about to catch up with China and become another Asian miracle economy. Economic Reform in China and India examines this prospect, reviewing the development strategies pursued by the two countries over the last 50 years in general, and exploring recently introduced reform measures in particular. The culmination of many years of research by specialists in these economies, this book assesses the performance of China and India at both macro and sectoral levels (including economic, social, political and environmental aspects), illustrates the reasons why China has outperformed India in the past, and identifies the obstacles that India will face in its attempts to catch up with China. Providing solutions for China and India that can be applied to other developing countries, this book will be invaluable for researchers, academics and students focusing on economic development and Asian studies. It will also receive much attention from investors and government analysts interested in the strategic implication of the emergence of the two Asian economic giants.
