This visionary and thought-provoking study is a must read for political leaders, policymakers, business executives, and leaders of civic society interested in India`s long-term development. It presents a much needed longer term vision of Indian society and economy within which today`s policy debates and actions must be anchored. The volume presents a persuasive case that if India succeeds in sustaining its recent economic success over the longer term (as many East Asian economies have done in the past), India can realistically aspire to become an affluent society within one generation.

Review:

It is particularly well timed, not because India`s transition to high growth is now widely acknowledged, but because it provides a warning of the danger of this growth sputtering out if India gets enmeshed in what the study calls "the middle income trap." (Montek Singh Ahluwalia)

This is a remarkable book in terms of process as well as product...The product is impressive. Instead of an obsessive (and often ritualistic) focus on poverty by the elite in India, the book focuses on affluence: How can India become an affluent society within one generation? This is where the elite can honestly work for... [The book] presents long-term perspectives of an affluent India.

(South Asia Economic Journal)

This visionary and thought-provoking study is a must read for political leaders, policymakers, business executives, and leaders of civic society interested in India`s long-term development. (Bimal Jalan)

This report makes a valuable contribution to identifying the priorities and policy prescriptions which will be necessary for the Indian economy to realize its full promise. (Ratan Tata)

Book Description Sage Publications, 2010. Hardcover. Condition: New. First edition. This book paints a bold and inspiring scenario of India becoming an affluent society by 2039, that is, within a generation from now. It makes a persuasive case as to why such a scenario could be plausible. Even more importantly, the book very appropriately and frankly assess the many hurdles ? political, social, policy and institutional ? that the country must overcome to realize this vision and lift millions of Indians from relative poverty today to enjoy the fruits of a modern and inclusive affluent society within 30 years or so. Its agenda of inter-generational issues is central to India avoiding the middle income trap that so many other countries have fallen into. However, India can successfully tackle this trap only by addressing, and addressing urgently and head on, the various facets of governance highlighted in the book. Features unique to this study - unlike other vertical studies that treat a topic in depth but on its own, this book tries to connect the dots between the key issues that could decide the future of Indian society - it has a longer 30-year perspective, with a corresponding emphasis on challenges that require long gestation to address - it offers a projection not of what will be but of what India?s potential is.
