Political Economy of Poverty Eradication in India and Essays on Fiscal Reform (Hardback)Raja J. Chelliah (author)
- We can order this
Dr Chelliah's central premise is that the major fault of India's economic policy has been that it was largely based on democratic socialist thought, thereby entrusting the government with the greatest responsibility, but without delineating in sufficient detail of how the government should respond to the challenge. Having explained that, he takes the next step of suggesting innovative policy reforms that would help the states lagging behind to develop. In doing that, among other things, he makes various tax reform recommendations like those for personal income tax, corporate income tax and wealth tax among others.
This book will be invaluable for students and scholars of development economics, political economy, public finance, public administration and economics.

For the policy maker it provides useful insights and a roadmap for action on the entire gamut of significant issues spanning poverty eradication, tax policy and intergovernmental relations... This book by Professor Chelliah lives up to the high expectations that it raises. It is comprehensive in content as it transverses the ground of poverty and regional inequalities in the Indian economy.-- Journal of Quantitative Economics
While stressing on the need to ensure that globalisation does not affect our independence or the conditions of the poor people, the book tries to explain the causes for our failure in getting the low-growth states to move forward and argues that unless the approach and methods are changed substantially, we will not succeed in transforming the low-growth states.-- Folksmagazine
