A new transnational capitalist class?: capital flows, business networks and entrepreneurs in the Indian software industry [Economic and Political Weekly, 27 November 2004]

Most analyses on globalisation in India have highlighted specific issues, such as the impact on labour, productivity, etc, while there has been little discussion on whether liberalisation and globalisation are bringing about a fundamental transformation in the structure of capitalism itself. This paper attempts to address this question through an analysis of entrepreneurship, capital flows, and business networks in the software exporting industry.

Both friends and foes of globalisation overlook one of its critical effects: although it has served rich countries well and poor ones even better, globalisation has left middle-income countries struggling to find a niche in world markets. Because these countries cannot compete in either the knowledge or the low-wage economy, without help, they will fall by the wayside.

Made in India: the next big manufacturing export story / by CII & McKinsey, New Delhi, October 2004

Manufacturing exports from India have not taken off even though India has several advantages in manufacturing. The conclusions of this study highlight that India has the potential to increase manufacturing exports from US$40 billion in 2002 to approximately US$300 billion by 2015. It is not a forecast but an assessment of what is possible if Indian companies step up their performance, multinational companies capitalise on the Indian opportunity and the government helps remove barriers to export-led growth.
