Abstract

In 2010, India faced the challenge of achieving the twin goals of double digit GDP growth and inclusive development. Would the Congress party, which won a strong electoral mandate in 2009, be able to achieve these goals in a context of rising internal conflict, fiscal constraints, regional instability and a global economic slowdown?

Learning Objective: Introduce students to policy constraints in achieving growth with inclusive development, familiarize students with recent developments in India's economic and business environment, and discuss appropriate policies to achieve double digit growth.
