520    "In December 2009, the economist Kaushik Basu left the 
       rarefied world of academic research for the nuts and bolts
       of policymaking. Appointed by the then Prime Minister of 
       India, Manmohan Singh, to be chief economic adviser (CEA) 
       to the Government of India, Basu -- a theorist, with 
       special interest in development economics, and a professor
       of economics at Cornell University -- discovered the 
       complexity of applying economic models to the real world. 
       Effective policymaking, Basu learned, integrates technical
       knowledge with political awareness. In this book, Basu 
       describes the art of economic policymaking, viewed through
       the lens of his two and a half years as CEA. Basu writes 
       from a unique perspective -- neither that of the career 
       bureaucrat nor that of the traditional researcher. Plunged
       into the deal-making, non-hypothetical world of 
       policymaking, Basu suffers from a kind of culture shock 
       and views himself at first as an anthropologist or 
       scientist, gathering observations of unfamiliar phenomena.
       He addresses topics that range from the macroeconomic -- 
       fiscal and monetary policies -- to the granular -- 
       designing grain auctions and policies to assure everyone 
       has access to basic food. Basu writes about globalization 
       and India's period of unprecedented growth, and he reports
       that at a dinner hosted by Prime Minister Manmohan Singh, 
       President Obama joked to him, 'You should give this guy 
       some tips' -- 'this guy' being Timothy Geithner. Basu 
       describes the mixed success of India's anti-poverty 
       programs and the problems of corruption, and considers the
       social norms and institutions necessary for economic 
       development. India is, Basu argues, at an economics 
       crossroad. As CEA from 2009 to 2012, he was present at the
       creation of a potential economic powerhouse"--Provided by
