Professor Arvind Panagariya will present his latest book, “India, the Emerging Giant” at Book Forum organised by ECIPE in association with Sciences Po. Razeen Sally, Director of ECIPE, and professor Mathew Tharakan will comment and discuss this path breaking work, which constitutes a key to understanding the rise of India in the world economy.

India, the world’s largest democracy, is also an emerging giant economy that has experimented with a wide range of economic policies in the sixty years of its independence. In the last two decades economic growth has finally taken off, and per capita incomes have risen significantly. Distinguished professor Arvind Panagariya, in his latest book, “India, the Emerging Giant”, undertakes a comprehensive account of policy making in India since the 1950s and of the role these policies played in determining India’s economic fate. It also addresses the question of how to ensure continued and even higher growth. Razeen Sally, Director of ECIPE, and professor Mathew Tharakan will comment and discuss this path breaking work, which constitutes a key to understanding the rise of India in the world economy.
