This is the story of a remarkable man, one who has been both an academic and a policy economist in unusual times. He has experienced our nation-making process over several decades. Sometimes he observed it thoughtfully from a distance, and sometimes as an active and influential participant. As he shares his thoughts with us in this book, the author's judgment, inquisitive mind and objectivity render this analysis both riveting and a reliable guide to the events of the time.
