A Macroeconomic Perspective
This book is about how macroeconomics work for a developing country like India. In India, the standard practice has been to teach macroeconomics using textbooks that are written in context of the developed economies such as Western Europe and Northern American economies. These books put more emphasis on macroeconomic theories without explaining much about how macroeconomics really works. The way economy works for a developing country like India is different and certainly needs a different treatment. This book fill in this void. It is a great book to have for any aspiring student preparing for a competitive exam such as UPSC, any MBA student, and in general for anyone who is willing to understand how economics work. Must read.
