Description: This book explores the role of public action in eliminating deprivationand expanding human freedoms in India. The analysis is based on a broad andintegrated view of development, which focuses on well-being and freedom ratherthan the standard indicators of economic growth. The authors place human agencyat the centre of stage, and stress the complementary roles of differentinstitutions (economic, social, and political) in enhancing effective freedoms.In comparative international perspective, the Indian economy has done reasonablywell in the period following the economic reforms initiated in the earlynineties. However, relatively high aggregate economic growth coexists with thepersistence of endemic deprivation and deep social failures. Jean Dreze andAmartya Sen relate this imbalance to the continued neglect, in the post-reformperiod, of public involvement in crucial fields such as basic education, healthcare, social security, environmental protection, gender equity, and civilrights, and also to the imposition of new burdens such as the acceleratedexpansion of military expenditure. Further, the authors link these distortionsof public priorities with deep-seated inequalities of social influence andpolitical power. The book discusses the possibility of addressing these biasesthrough more active democratic practice.
