Book Description
Bringing together academic discussions on public policy and the experience of the common people of India, this collection of essays by a range of eminent scholars across disciplines tackles the problems of contemporary development policy and contributes to the ongoing debate. The essays originate from testimonies given at the Independent People`s Tribunal on the World Bank held in New Delhi. The book discusses the way in which the World Bank has used undue leverage to impact key sectors of India`s economy and shows that the Bank`s policies of extreme marketisation, trade liberalisation and reduced public spending have created a shocking trend of jobless growth and increased poverty for the majority of people in India. It also covers the negative impacts of the World Bank on local democratic processes and their negative ramifications on the environment. This work is a timely contribution to the debate over pro-poor versus pro-corporate development policy in India and across the globe.
