Utsa patnaik’s book is as much a comment on the state of economics as a discipline today, as on the economic policies that are ruining the lives and livelihoods of millions of people in the Third World.

The unifying theme of her essays is the impact on the Third world of the new imperialism in the present era, which takes the form of deflationary neo-liberal ‘economic reforms’, a thrust towards free trade and subservient agriculture.

She shows how these policies are causing unprecedented rural distress and universal hunger in the developing countries including India. Here is a voice of sanity, conscience and true scholarship.
