This book provides a highly informative yet accessible
analysis of the life and future of urban India. Drawing
upon the interdisciplinary of urban studies and cutting
edge research on cities, the book engages with issues of
class divide, identity, migration, and quality of life.
It not only highlights the organized and planned built
environment of urban spaces but also reveals the informal
processes of city-building.

Impact of liberalization on informality has been a
subject of intense debate for many years and the major
issue that has come up is whether liberalization helps to
grow informal sector and informality in the economy or it
is an obstruction for informal sector-s growth. Thus, in
the light of the recent liberalization measure, this book
sets to examine general presumptions of the development
of informal sector in the context of the Indian economy.
The book begins with a broad framework for analysis of
output contribution and growth of the informal sector.

The failure of economists to anticipate the global
financial crisis and mitigate the impact of the ensuing
recession has spurred a public outcry. Economists are
under fire, but questions concerning exactly how to
redeem the discipline remain unanswered. In this
provocative book, renowned economist Meghnad Desai
investigates the evolution of economics and maps its
trajectory against the occurrence of major political
events to provide a definitive answer. Desai underscores
the contribution of hubris to economists- calamitous lack
of foresight, and he makes a persuasive case for the
profession to re-engage with the history of economic

David Card and Alan B. Krueger have already made national
news with their path breaking research on the minimum
wage. Here they present a powerful new challenge to the
conventional view that higher minimum wages reduce jobs
for low-wage workers. In a work that has important
implications for public policy as well as for the
direction of economic research, the authors put standard
economic theory to the test, using data from a series of
recent episodes, including the 1992 increase in New
Jersey-s minimum wage, the 1988 rise in California-s
minimum wage, and the 1990-91 increases in the federal
minimum wage. In each case they present a battery of
evidence showing that increases in the minimum wage lead
to increases in pay, but no loss in jobs.

It may well be surprising to say that the world should
look to India as a model of gender equality. India-s
banking sector proves the exception, with several women
reaching the highest positions in India-s top banks,
including the country-s largest bank. Based on interviews
and surveys of bank employees in India-s National Capital
Region, this book looks at what lies behind the media
rhetoric and provides a systematic analysis of patterns
of, and responses to, gender inequality in the banking
sector in India. The book uncovers how gender
discrimination still persists in the banking sector,.

Experimental Capitalism examines six key industries-
automobiles, pneumatic tires , television receivers,
semiconductors , lasers and penicillin-and tracks the
highs and lows of American high-tech capitalism and the
resulting innovation landscape. Employing "nanoeconomics"
a deep dive into the formation and functioning of
companies -Steven Kleeper determines how specific
companies emerged to become the undisputed leaders that
altered the course of their industry-s evolution. Kleeper
concludes his study with a discussion of the impact of
government and the potential for policy to enhance a
nation-s high-tech industrial base.

ISBN : 9780691167510.
This book presents a new approach to the epistemology of
mathematics by viewing mathematics as a human activity
whose knowledge is intimately linked with practice.
Charting an exciting new direction in the philosophy of
mathematics, the author uses the crucial idea of a
continuum to provide an account of the development of
mathematical knowledge that reflects the actual
experience of doing math and makes sense of the perceived
objectivity of mathematical results Offering a wealth of
philosophical and historical insights ,This book
challenges us to rethink some of our most basic
assumptions about mathematics, its objectively, and its
relationship to culture and science.
