The government of India attaches highest priority to reforms, implementing policies with vigor and commitment, aiming to revive growth, promote enterprise, generate employment, and eliminate poverty. However, the reforms have both stabilized India’s economy and varied governance of states. This area of my research examines the progress of reforms and growth from its early days to the present, and discusses the political and economic aspects of authority structures and governance in this space. The focus here is on gauging economic performance and perceptions of governance across time and space.
So far, the analysis contextualizes the study of the political economy of market reforms in areas such as fiscal policy, labor economics, development, industrial organization and social economics.
