“Since globalization went into high gear in the wake of the Cold War, two giant countries have surged to the forefront of rapid economic development by opening to the outside world: India and (above all) China. While both have attracted their share of scholarly attention, comparisons have been rare and usually fairly general.

“Managing banking reform has been one of the most challenging tasks for bank policymakers and regulators in every country that has attempted to do so. India and China pose particular difficulties arising from entrenchment, China on account of its political structure and India on account of its poor, yet politically active, rural population. Saez’s book provides a thorough and comprehensive analysis of these issues. Along the way, a useful history of the growth of the banking system is also presented, a must-read for the economic and political historian working in the area. Banking Reform in India and China is of further value given the unexpectedly sustained rise of China and the recent economic growth in India. The book, especially the discussion on central bank independence, brings out the importance of financial reform in a newly growing economy and thus provides a valuable conceptual perspective to students of institution-driven growth.”– Dr. Rafiq Dossani, Senior Research Scholar, Asia/Pacific Research Center, Stanford University

Students of India and China will discover the comparative method useful in elucidating why the content material and outcomes of banking reform has differed considerably in the 2 nations–and readers in rising market economies and monetary crises extra typically, will probably be to learn the way the banking reform expertise in India and China challenges standard assumptions concerning the relationship between company governance and the banking system, and the relative significance of central financial institution independence.” — Kellee Tsai, Department of Political Science, Johns Hopkins University
