Working of Carbon Market by Patrick Nussbaumer  

Carbon trading as an instrument for combating climate change has grown rapidly, more in the cap-and-trade regulatory regime than in the voluntary compliance market. There are, however, many issues concerning its contribution to reducing the build-up of greenhouse gases and the role of developing countries, including India, in such trading.

Affirmative Action in India:An Alternative Perspective by Amarnath Mohanty

Explanations provided for the necessity of affirmative discrimination are basically fleshed out in two approaches, i e, forward-looking and backward-looking. A critique of both these approaches is made in this paper followed by the construction of an alternative perspective from ideas derived from recent ethical theories which emphasise cross-time values, narrative perspective, historical context and organic unity.

Employment and Poverty in India, 2000-2005 by K Sundaram

This paper is principally focused on the changes in the size and structure of the workforce and the changes in labour productivity, wages and poverty in India in the first quinquennium of the 21st century. The period between 2000 and 2005 saw a sharp acceleration in workforce growth, and, on the obverse side, a slowdown in the rate of growth of labour productivity across most sectors and in the economy as a whole, and, a slowdown (a decline) in real wage growth in rural (urban) India.

Whither the Small Trader? 

Economic liberalisation in India is a story of contrasts and the deepening of divides. On the one side, it exudes “excellence” and “efficiency” fuelling prosperity for a few, while the flip side is of squalor and misery, heightened for many, without commensurate state action to mitigate the same.
