   8 Kabra, Kamal Nayan
The Black economy in India : transition to the grey
political economy / Kamal Nayan Kabra.-- Delhi: Aakar
Books, 2019.
xvii, 286p. , 22cm.
ISBN : 9789350025789.
381.0954 CAB 147373
The book briefly updates the conceptual, theoretical and
policy analyses which overviews how vast dramatic
depravities grip India-s democracy, development and human
rights record in the direction of mal-development,
plummeting the social existence of the masses to new lows
of inhuman inequalities and indignities. It has been
contributed to in no small measure by the transformation
of the black economy into the grey political economy
commanded in complicit ways by the miniscule minority of
the rich and powerful sitting atop India-s patrimonial
corporate business empires in crony relationships with
increasingly corporatized party high commands.
