Publications of the Forum of Free Enterprise
 

Since its inception in July 1956, the Forum has published a total of 674 booklets (as on Jan 2010) on important subjects having a bearing on economics. The booklets have been authored by highly eminent economists and economist-statesmen, businessmen and industrialists, professionals, educationists, scientists, jurists and others. Many of these have been based on talks delivered on the Forum platform, including Memorial Lectures, while some have been reproduced from other publications, with prior permission of the original publishers.

Most of the booklets published initially were related to free enterprise, role of the private sector in economic development, ills and pitfalls of the public sector, the ill-effects of socialistic economic policies and the like. These booklets cover highly topical economic subjects – such as the foreign exchange problem or the food problem, the effects of high taxation. The budgets presented to the parliament every year since 1957 have also been analysed.

It is gratifying that many of the predictions made in the booklets have now come true. The Governments at the Centre and the States having been for some time advocating economic policies that were earlier advocated by the authors of Forum booklets. In a way the Forum stands vindicated. The authors in fact were much ahead of their time. The post-liberalization era generation (those born after the 1980s) will hardly believe that such antediluvian economic policies were pursued by the Government in the post-independent era from 1947 till the late 1980s resulting in stunted average GDP growth of barely 3.5% .

An attempt is being made here to place on the website contents of most of the booklets. The month and year of publication of each booklet are also given.
