A modern approach to understanding the dichotomy between growth and development, this book explores the links between growth and inequality and debates whether or not growth has been inclusive in recent experience. Suggesting unusual solutions to India's development problems, this account - which also investigates issues such as philanthropy and migration - will be beneficial to development economists.
