This annual publication analyzes interesting macroeconomic events of contemporary India using macroeconomic and statistical tools. Its focus is on problems affecting the economy in general; it not only addresses problems of the Indian economy, but also has a fairly broad perspective that would be applicable to the conditions in other countries.

The first part of the volume deals with macroeconomic issues while the second part comprises academic research papers covering a wide range of topics such as labor, fiscal issues, banking and finance, international trade, econometrics, and computational and mathematical methods. Each paper studies topics relevant for developing countries through pure and applied economic theory and econometric methods.

India Macroeconomic Annual 2009 is a healthy effort to facilitate the readers in engrossing and enjoying a vivid nature of article together. Contents of the annual are also fabulous in terms of putting together articles of contextual importance and relevance. Appendices and detailed footnotes throughout the book not only enhanced the quality but also supported the discussion being carried out without breaking the flow of discussion.
