This collection of essays presents the unfolding of economic policy in India and the world over the momentous years from 2010 to 2015, under the overarching shadow of the great global crash of 2008, the aftershocks of which continue to rattle us to the present day. It was a period of brewing discontent which erupted into major street demonstrations in India against corruption in 2011, and the Occupy Wall Street movement in the developed world against corporate greed. Each essay investigates the structural underpinnings of a headline issue, trying to bring out connectivities across the seemingly unrelated. New entrants into the labour force, on their journey towards skills and jobs, will find that the book opens their eyes to how live issues of the day can be better understood when subordinated to economic examination and logic.
