Rich Advice, Poor Performance

Rich Advice, Poor Performance

Rich Advice, Poor Performance I G Patel The Indian Economy: Problems and Prospects edited by Bimal Jalan; Viking, New Delhi; pp 267, Rs 250. IT is difficult to think of a more timely and useful publication on India's economic problems and prospects than this one to which sixteen of India's most incisive economists have contributed. The editor, Bimal Jalan, has done a signal service not only in persuading such a galaxy of talent to write on their chosen fields of expertise He has also provided a coherent format for the entire volume Thus each piece contains a historical perspective; a neat presentation of all relevant facts and findings and unambiguous recommendations for the future, The style is concise and clear and, while not altogether non-technical, devoid of jargon. Where necessary, simple definitions are provided. The objective clearly is to be accessible to a wide spectrum of readership and one hopes that a much cheaper paperback edition would soon be available to serve this purpose better.
