Summary: "The dramatic development of India since the economic reforms of 1991 promises to eventually be as significant as the progress China has made in recent decades. India's economic success will be more than a mere litmus test for the efficacy of globalization. Eventually, India's economic success will have to be measured not in terms of GDP growth rates or indicators of competitiveness, but in terms of its ability to deliver a decent life to each of its citizens." "The Rise of India tells the story through the prism of six great revolutions that are leading to the frontal attack of poverty in the world's largest democracy: demographics, outsourcing, globalization, finance, aspirations and reforms for the poor. This book is not so much a study of macroeconomic policy reforms as it is of the effects of these reforms on the lives of people and their organizations."--BOOK JACKET.
