The utility of bringing out a two-volume collection of Dr Rangarajan's essays is beyond question.
Insightful essays, The select essays show the maser that Rangarajan is as an expositor of ideas. The essays demonstrate a rich blend of analysis and empiricism. By bringing out the Select Essays, Rangarajan has done a public service. Students, academics, financial journalists and technocrats in policy-making bodies would gain rich insights about policy issues by going through them. All college/University libraries would do well to have this set of two volumes.
Feasting on Indian Economics, Dr C Rangarajan is one of the finest and the most illustrious economists that India has produced, The two volumes not only bring together his earlier research in one place, but also serve as a very useful reference guide to the students and practitioners of economics alike.
Should be prescribed for mandatory reading in universities and academic institutions, Our universities and institutions are starved of current economic literature and now they have two books on various aspects of the Indian economy. It is indeed a gift for the younger generation.
The book is marked by academic rigour and scholarship.
