This book aims at the process of economic growth theories that lead to economic development. After analyzing the existing capitalistic growth-development theoretical apparatus, a new model is introduced which integrates the variables of freedom, democracy and human rights into the existing models and argue that any future equitable economic growth-development of any nation depends on this emerging model as we witness the unfolding demand for democracy in the world and supports democratic India's effort to inclusive development.
