Description
Well-known economists and policy makers look at the Bihar model of development and discuss the challenges ahead During the 1990s, Bihar's development failed to benefit from the acceleration in India's economic growth, principally because of a steep decline in the already low standards of governance. this changed dramatically after November 2005, when The Nitish Kumar government came to power. Within a short time, major initiatives were launched in improving governance, infrastructure, education, especially primary and for girl children, health and agriculture. The last six years have shown that rapid economic development is possible in Bihar. To maintain the momentum of growth, the recent improvements in governance have to be consolidated and strengthened. Eminent economists like Amartya Sen, Kaushik Basu, Montek Singh Ahluwalia, Meghnad Desai, Shankar Acharya and Arvind Virmani analyse the remarkable turnaround witnessed by Bihar. Experts Tarun Das, Deepak Parekh, Lord Billimoria, K.V. Kamath and Isher Judge Ahluwalia speak of the opportunities and challenges ahead. This is a must read for anyone interested in governance and development.

Awesome crafting of topics

This book clearly tells about the past, present and future of Bihar. It discuss the problems and solutions both. i would recommend this book to all young guns of Bihar. Freight Equalization policy was described in a proper way. Afer reading this book i came to know how a great state like Bihar went to the dirth of poverty. But it is never too late to amend. At last Thanks to N.K.Singh for taking an initiative for writing the book on Bihar.

Review of the Book : "The New Bihar" ::Fantastic read.

This is an excellent book. The book cover has a madhubani painting which depicts a girl child riding a bicycle which clearly defines the enormous change that has happened in Bihar.
Both NK and Nicholas stern has understood the essence of the bihar development model after a lot of research and have penned it very well. Various sections starting from Amartya Sen's evolution of ancient bihar in how it gave civilisation to the world and was a leader in sciences, mathematics, economics, philosophy...
