An uncertain glory : India and its contradictions by Jean Drèze ( Book )
9 editions published between 2013 and 2014 in English and held by 442 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
When India became independent in 1947 after two centuries of colonial rule, it immediately adopted a firmly democratic political system, with multiple parties, freedom of speech, and extensive political rights. Maintaining rapid as well as environmentally sustainable growth remains an important and achievable goal for India. Two of India's leading economists argue that the country's main problems lie in the lack of attention paid to the essential needs of the people, especially of the poor, and often of women. In the long run, even the feasibility of high economic growth is threatened by the underdevelopment of social and physical infrastructure and the neglect of human capabilities

An uncertain glory : the contradictions of modern India by Jean Drèze ( Book )
4 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 34 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Two of India's leading economists argue that, despite economic development, there must be a greater understanding of inequalities in India. - When India became independent in 1947 after two centuries of colonial subjugation, it immediately - and quite successfully - adopted a firmly democratic political system, with multiple parties, freedom of speech and extensive political rights. The famines that had been so common in colonial days disappeared, and steady economic growth replaced the almost complete stagnation characteristic of the long rule of the Raj. The growth of the Indian economy, which quickened over the last three decades, became the second fastest in the world. Despite a recent dip, it is still one of the highest among nations
Policy reform, shadow prices and market prices by Jean Drèze ( Book )
10 editions published in 1988 in English and held by 28 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
How should possible policy reforms and projects be assessed when prices give misleading signals? Revenues and costs at market prices then give distorted measrres of social gains and losses and our appraisal should use social opportunity costs, or correctly defined, shadow prices. We show how shadow prices may be integrated into an analysis of tax and price reform, demonstrate the critical dependence of these prices on government policy, and analyze their relations with market prices. A conceptual framework for applied analysis is provided plus a detailed theoretical account of policy in a model with some fixed prices, rationing, and taxation
