"Sustainable Development is a catch word of today's world. Sustainability does not
only depend on the climatic or resources factors. It is also an essential element in any
modern day discussion of output and human welfare. An economy has to run in such a way so
that it can costlessly reproduce itself within a specific period of time. The present work
considers the `sustainability' from this broader framework. It considers productivity
change in the manufacturing sector, employment and crop diversification in the rural
sector, labor used and variation in economic growth, efficiency of stock market as well as
certain aspects of Human Development. The book also comments on the resource and
environment degradation in the rural and semi-urban sectors of the country. In a
kaleidoscope, the variance of Sustainability gets entrenched.
This book tries to capture various aspects within a nutshell. The disparate human
activity that is encompassed under sustainability is vast and divers. It captures direct
productive activities like manufacturing and agriculture, services, financial markets,
natural resources and energy."
