India’s Coalitions for Change | Transforming the world’s most dynamic economy

The transformation of the Indian economy and the modernisation of the Indian state is essential if one million new job seekers a month are to be employed.

 

 

India’s current government, expected to focus exclusively on transformational economic reform, has been something of a disappointment. The sociopolitical coalition that elected the government in 2014 continues to have potential to be a supporter of transformative economic policy. This support, however, would require tweaks to the composition of the coalition, and a change in rhetorical focus among those calling for reform.

This study is part of a series under the regional project Economy of Tomorrow. Similar studies have already been published for Vietnam and Indonesia. As part of the same series, soon to appear are studies by Pakistan and Bangladesh.
