Liberalisation, the Stock Market and the Market for Corporate Control: A Bridge Too Far for the Indian Economy?
AbstractAn outstanding feature of the Indian economic reform in the recent period has been the fast expansion of stock markets and their growing role in the economy. The paper first reviews the stock market reforms and analyses the effects of stock market expansion on corporate growth and the real economy. Second, it examines the proposed next stage of the reforms: the establishment of a market for corporate control. The paper offers analyses and evidence to suggest that this reform is more likely to harm than help the real economy at India's present stage of development.
