  • Nicholas Boyle. 2014: How to Survive the Next World Crisis
    2014: How to Survive the Next World Crisis
    Nicholas Boyle
    Top Cambridge public intellectual argues for economic, political reform if the dire events at the opening of the 20th century are not to be repeated. A new world crisis is already looming. By the middle of Obama's second term, or of the first term of his, presumably Republican, successor, America's legacy to the 21st century will be decided. Will it be a century of climatic disaster and war? The roots of the present crisis lie in an unbalanced globalization which has failed to match economic with political integration. False models of nationhood, markets, and empires have hindered the development of global governance. These illusions in turn are part of the ideology of American exceptionalism. If human civilization is to survive the 21st century, that ideology will have to give way to a more realistic acceptance of supranational authorities, and especially of an enhanced IMF and WTO. The banking collapse of 2007-8 calls for a revived understanding of the interdependence of politics...

    Agricultural Growth, Employment and Rural Poverty in India
    Chinthakunta Narayana Reddy
    Agriculture was the backbone of Indian economy in the past, and will be in future also. The pace of economic development of our country is significantly influenced by the pace of its agricultural development, as agriculture continues to be the predominant sector of the economy. It gives employment to more than sixty per cent of the labour force and also contributes 17.8 percent (2007-08) to Gross National Product (GDP). In an agrarian economy, transformation of traditional agriculture into scientific agriculture is a pre requisite for development. The government of India is trying to eradicate poverty in the country, particularly from rural areas, as rural poverty in India is massive. Most of the rural poor depend on rain-fed agriculture. The estimated results indicate an inverse relationship between rural poverty and agricultural performance and rural poverty and wage rates. This observation is found to be the same during, pre-reform period, post-reform and overall period. This...
