Nearly fifty years after independence, India remains a very poor country. It ranks near the bottom in terms of per capita income, and is similarly placed in the Human Development Index which measures social well-being. Economic growth in India has been less than half that of China or even other countries in Asia. And governments, at the Centre as well as in the states, are close to insolvency. The reason for our spectacular underachievement lies in the continuation of policies which had a certain validity as a response to the colonial experience, but which have long outlived their usefulness. The global economic scene has changed dramatically since they were formulated, and we must respond to the new realities. Bimal Jalan, the well known economist and present Governor of the RBI, in this lucid and well-argued book, makes a case for governments doing what they alone can best do, and less of what they cannot do effectively. 'One of the most lucid and lay-reader-accessible books to have been penned by an Indian economist.' --Outlook 'One cannot but agree with most of the suggestions made by Mr Jalan.' following the reforms process closely.' --Business India 'Jalan marshals a formidable array of facts to convey the general failure of the avowed mission of planning in India and the public sector's abysmal failure in particular.' --The Telegraph

Many companies prefer to promote from within, partially out of tradition and to keep the costs of training within budget. But is this what will keep companies competitive in this increasingly global market? This significant book focuses on executive education--what the authors refer to as the training of people already in managerial positions for greater responsibility. Not a how-to manual, rather the book examines the key issues in the process of executive education in an increasingly complex world. The authors summarize recent major changes in the business world that have had a significant impact on management competency, survey developments in meeting the needs of a changing environment, and provide an analysis of how anticipated needs of future executives can be met. In scrutinizing the principal players--the corporation, the executives, and the directors of the business schools' executive educational programs--the authors hope this book will help not only the human resources executives responsible for development, but students and researchers in business schools as well.

This volume provides many points of reference for the institutional researcher and planner as postsecondary education plunges into the twenty-first century. No crystal ball has been used to see what lies ahead; rather, experts in a number of areas call upon their knowledge, their experiences, and their gut feelings as they prepare a guide to lead us into the future. The purpose of this sourcebook is to chart some likely or possible ways the world of higher education may evolve in the next ten to fifteen years. Broad scenarios can be ascertained by those who know where to look. This is no attempt to predict the future; rather, the authors use common sense, a modest amount of vision, and even a touch of daring as they describe the higher education world of the next century to today's institutional researchers, planners, and university administrators. This is the 85th issue of the quarterly journal New Directions for Institutional Research.
