This book offers an analysis of external dimensions of an emerging economy, India, in the backdrop of neoliberal globalisation. External dimensions of Indian economy signify her inter-relation with the rest of the world in terms of trade and financial flows and how that affects the development process within the country in the age of neoliberal globalisation. It is based on non-mainstream unorthodox approach in Economics and as such is a critique of the mainstream neoclassical position on current neoliberal globalisation.
The contents of the book can be classified into as follows – (1) India’s external dimension in the colonial period through the trade route ; (2) concerns with India’s balance of payments transactions in terms of illegal flows, (3) political economy of development planning in the present era of globalisation, (4) capital flows as it affect the India’s external front, (5) Indian industries under the TRIPs regime, (6) regional economic integration of India and (7) foreign capital flows in India during the liberalisation period. The entire book is an attempt to decipher the meaning and significance the process of globalisation produces for the real economy of India.
The uniqueness of the book is that in one place one can find different unorthodox positions dealing with the external dimensions of emerging India, which cannot be found in any other book.
