(Although the public equates free trade areas with free tr...)
Although the public equates free trade areas with free trade, these areas operate under preferential trading arrangements -- with free trade for members only and implicit protection against non-members. This volume probes the claims of proponents of free trade areas and analyzes the two principal initiatives associated with recent U.S. trade policy: NAFTA and APEC.
(This book brings together leading specialists on the glob...)
This book brings together leading specialists on the global trading system to both discuss and assess the implications of the Uruguay Round Agreement and the subsequent culmination of the World Trade Organization. It also considers these trade developments in relation to Asia, drawing on the findings of a multinational study conducted by the Asian Development Bank.

(The signing of the North American Free Trade Agreement (N...)
The signing of the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) and recent expansions of the European Union have led to renewed efforts to create preferential trade areas (PTAs) around the world including Asia, Africa and Latin America. Because PTAs liberalize trade with union members but not the rest of the world, they are not necessarily a healthy development.
(India is not only the world's largest and fiercely indepe...)
India is not only the world's largest and fiercely independent democracy, but also an emerging economic giant. But to date there has been no comprehensive account of India's remarkable growth or the role policy has played in fueling this expansion. India: The Emerging Giant fills this gap, shedding light on one of the most successful experiments in economic development in modern history.
(Reforms and Economic Transformation in India is the secon...)
Reforms and Economic Transformation in India is the second volume in the series Studies in Indian Economic Policies. The volume takes as its starting point the fact that while reforms have undoubtedly delivered in terms of poverty reduction and associated social objectives, the impact has not been as substantial as seen in other reform-oriented economies such as South Korea and Taiwan in the 1960s and 1970s, and more recently, in China.
(In its history since Independence, India has seen widely ...)
In its history since Independence, India has seen widely different economic experiments: from Jawharlal Nehru's pragmatism to the rigid state socialism of Indira Gandhi to the brisk liberalization of the 1990s. So which strategy best addresses India's, and by extension the world's, greatest moral challenge: lifting a great number of extremely poor people out of poverty? Bhagwati and Panagariya argue forcefully that only one strategy will help the poor to any significant effect: economic growth, led by markets overseen and encouraged by liberal state policies.
(Arguments for protection and against free trade have seen...)
Arguments for protection and against free trade have seen a revival in developed countries such as the United States and Great Britain as well as developing countries such as India.

Panagariya suggested that a national research foundation along the lines of the United States National Science Foundation should be created to bring research centrally to universities with the current system of research councils gradually phased out.
“I write on economic theory as well as policy. The former type of writing is aimed at research economists and graduate students of economics. The latter is aimed at informing the public on policy issues and influencing economic policies. My focus is on trade policy, and I have been influenced mainly by Jagdish Bhagwati of Columbia University."
“A key element in my policy writings is that 1 should be able to support my claims with rigorous economic analysis. This means that I do a good deal of background research before offering policy advice and positions.”
Arvind Panagariya married Amita Somani on January 17, 1981. They have two children - Ananth and Ajay.
