Generation of decent livelihood opportunities ought to be
among the most important objectives on any meaningful
agenda of economic development. During the first four
decades after Independence, India-s achievements with
respect to the problems of poverty, unemployment and
occupational structural transformation were modest at
best. Since the early 1990s, during the era of neo-
liberal reforms, while economic growth has remained
upbeat, the wellbeing of the masses has shown even
greater stress. An indispensable entry point to the
subject of labour in India, this book locates the debate

When the General Agreement on Tariffs and Trade (GATT)
metamorphosed into the World Trade Organization (WTO) in
1994, it seemed that the third pillar of the
international economic superstructure was finally in
place. And yet with the failure of member countries to
close the Doha Round of trade negotiations and the
emergence of bilateral and plurilateral preferential
trade arrangements (PTAs) such as the Trans-Pacific
Partnership (TPP), the future of the multilateral WTO
seems uncertain. In this volume, leading economists
examine issues in trade policy that have arisen during
this shift. They discuss such topics as the effect of
trade on poverty and inequality, PTAs and litigation
between trading partners, the WTO Trade Facilitation
Agreement, and the relationship of food security and
trade liberalization. They also offer regional
perspectives on the TPP and trans-Atlantic free trade.
