The field of Economics has changed considerably since Adam Smith's 18th century proposition of key ideas to understand the economy. Many economists have made note-worthy contributions and have incorporated ideas from other fields to make the Economics field richer. Due to their phenomenal work they have procured great respect and have exceeded the limits of normal human understanding. But what has led them to do this? How did they come up with the path breaking theories? How did they develop theories that changed the way economists understood the working of the economies of the world? How did they channel their motivation to develop the economics field-changing its trajectory? These questions led the students of IBA to try to understand the factors behind the development of some great theories by these great minds. We have limited knowledge of the lives of these economists and the experiences that shaped their philosophies. This work is an effort by the students of IBA to learn the lessons from their life and work. This book has been divided into five themes using many IDEAS RePEc which is an economics bibliographic database. It is important to mention here that these economists have done such influential work and in such diverse fields that categorizing their work under just one theme was a difficult task. To do justice to all the esteemed economists that are part of this book, we have taken into account which field the economist has done the most impactful work and then made the themes accordingly. We hope that this book will in turn inspirit readers to form their own ideas and track paths that will lead them to their own important contributions in economics.
This volume is a compilation of the articles, speeches and contributions made by the author on three topics- Globalization, Governance and Growth. Although on the surface it may appear as these were disparate and disconnected themes but careful reflection would demonstrate that there is a close link in relationship between them.
The IBA history book, “Chronicling Excellence: A History of IBA", is an attempt to capture this history. There are defined eras and historical points of interest. The institution partnered with international institutions, shifted academic operations between three locations, started multiple programs and produced the leading industry captains of the country. It did all this with a minimal amount of resources and in a challenging and fluid environment. The idea was to produce a publication that would be both instructive and illustrative, that it would provide a holistic narrative that would be readable and serve as a guide for other institutions and policy makers.
