Description

Professor Lord Nicholas Stern, LSE and Professor Himanshu, Jawaharlal Nehru University

Development economics is about understanding how and why lives change. Drawing on seven decades of detailed data collection How Lives Change: Palanpur, India, and Development Economics studies a single village in a crucially important country to illuminate the drivers of these changes, why some people do better or worse than others, and what influences mobility and inequality.

Against a backdrop of real economic growth and structural transformation, this book shows that human development outcomes have shown only weak progress and remain stubbornly resistant to change.
