This conclusion revisits the book's central themes and explores their relevance for development strategies. It first considers the economic divide in India, arguing that it is also a cultural one and that both are reinforced by economic reforms that benefit specific class segments to the exclusion of others. It then discusses India's reliance on the global market and international trade, along with the effect of the outsourcing debate on the attitudes of business, policymakers, and the citizenry. It also calls for the denaturalization of globalization and construction of alternative paths of development that allow for experimentation and creativity. Finally, it contends that the prevailing desire for economic growth must be situated within a broader framework in which social goals can be pursued simultaneously.
