Can India grow without Bharat? Can we reap the ""demographic dividend"" of a young population? How should we revive industrial employment? Is the National Rural Employment Guarantee Act affordable? Why have reforms sputtered despite the ""dream team""? How is growth so strong though reforms have stalled? How can populism be restrained? Can 8 per cent growth be sustained? Should we deploy forex reserves to build infrastructure? What must we do to renew our decaying cities? What is the solution to the coming water crisis? Who are India's tax reformers? Can bilateral trade agreements substitute for the Doha Round? Should SAARC have a common currency? Is ""fiscal responsibility"" working? Does monetary policy work? Can we really aspire to China's economic league - or is it all hype? How good is our foreign policy? The eminent economist Shankar Acharya provides forthright and provocative answers to these key issues about India's development.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"This superb collection of essays tells you why Dr. Acharya is India's best policy analyst. . . . Each essay is a gem and a source of invaluable policy advice." --Vijay Kelkar, former finance secretary, Government of India
"This splendid, provocative and accessible collection of essays, by one of India's leading economists, should be of great interest to all those who rightly worry if India is truly shining." --Deepak Lal, James S. Coleman professor of international development studies, University of California-Los Angeles
"Acharya stands out among Indian commentators for the clarity of his prose and the judiciousness of his judgements. . . . Attentive readers will realise how little such complacency is justified and how much still needs to be done." --Martin Wolf, associate editor and chief economics commentator, "Financial Times"
"Shankar Acharya is his usual, thoughtful self in these collected articles. He is not willing to be swept along in the unthinking wave of euphoria about India's economic performance, asks many of the right questions, and offers balanced judgment that points to what still needs to be done." --T. N. Ninan, editor, "Business Standard"
