Heard at the GSB

Assessing and Learning from India's Economy
October 2, 2002

Is India a model for development in third-world economies? How must Western business approaches be transformed to work in poorer countries? What can India's institutions tell us about change necessary to support economic growth?

Raghuram Rajan and C. K. Prahalad explored these questions at a symposium cosponsored by the Consulate General of India-Chicago and Chicago GSB.
