This volume examines the interaction of labour market
conditions and retirement decisions. Based on French and
US data, it provides empirical evidence and quantitative
analysis of retirement and labor market flows. It studies
the horizon effect and uses French individual data and
probity models to show that the horizon effect does matter
for the probability of being employed before the early
retirement age. It analyses the influence of the
retirement age on labour-market equilibrium, as well as
the impact of labour market conditions, especially the
importance of unemployment risk, on retirement decisions.

ISBN : 9781352000252.

This book moves beyond the usual economic analysis of the
Indian growth story and provides a fresh perspective on
the determinants of growth episodes in post-independence
India, based on its political economy. Using a robust and
novel technique, the authors identify four such episodes
during this period. The first, running from the fifties
to 1992, was mostly characterized by economic stagnation,
with a nascent recovery in the eighties. The second,
covering the period 1993 to 2001, witnessed the first
growth acceleration in the economy. A second acceleration
ran from 2002 to 2010. The fourth and final episode
started with the slowdown in 2010 and continues to this
day. The book provides a theoretical framework that
focuses on rent-structures, institutions and the polity,
and demonstrates how changes in these can explain the
four growth episodes.

Prayers carry lives within - as do these luminous and
varied poems: some, brief as a firefly-s single pulse
from the darkness, some, brightly lit as the long bridge
between cultures. In these poems "an enormous God steps
in" and reveals. The world is multi-valences,
multifaceted and multilayered. "Live in the layers,"
another poet, Stanley Kunitz, advises us. These poems
dwell a language beyond the many borders of languages.
Something else speaks: Truth-of the known, the unknown
and the unknowable. "A wonderful world opens up deep
inside." You owe it to yourself to read these poems right
now, not so much as to get out of your "self" as to come
inside. Just as the old maps of the new "India" would
label the margins, "There Be Demons Here" within these
pages of Kiriti Sengupta: Here Lives The Angelic, right
here on this "Earth...where I wish to live.
