Offering a consolidated view of India’s reform process from the early 1990s to the present day in the areas of commerce, trade, and finance and the contributions made by P. Chidambaram—the current Union Minister of Finance of India—during his 20 years at the helm of various Indian government ministries, this volume gathers contributions from a host of accomplished experts in their respective fields who all worked with Chidambaram. The collection covers a wide range of measures—including fiscal and monetary policies, strengthening financial inclusion, revitalizing agriculture, external trade reforms, and urban infrastructure renewal—that revolutionized India’s economy, providing an insider’s look at the country’s explosive growth over the last two decades. As much a tribute to Chidambaram’s eloquent advocacy of economic freedom as about setting the agenda for the country’s next wave of reforms, this analysis charts out a clear roadmap for a growth-oriented, caring, and compassionate agenda for India’s future.
