Social and economic insecurity takes several forms and affects the various groups that make up society in different ways. The problem is that development, so rapid in India in recent years, is altering the pattern of socio-economic insecurity, leaving some groups extremely vulnerable to personal disaster at the slightest mishap. This book develops an innovative concept of social income, a measure of all forms of income and income and income support that individuals, families and communities can receive. It demonstrates how people survive by calling on support from themselves, their families, communities, and the state, as also how many forms of such support have become unreliable and unequally distributed, leaving more people vulnerable to shocks and hazards.

Among the questions it addresses is whether the structure of social income is being changed by the commercialisation of economic development, and whether the changes are making people economically more insecure. It also considers whether income inequality is more or less unequal when account is taken of non-earned forms of income support. In doing so, the book argues that existing state policies are ineffectual; indeed, they have been contributing to an increase in income inequality.

The book will be of interest to students and scholars of economics, sociology and anthropology, and to NGOs, activists as well as administrators engaging with questions of poverty, income distribution and social protection policies

Social income is a novel way of looking at the various forms of income that individuals, families and communities obtain---some earned, some in money form, some non-monetary, and some as support available in times of need. Everybody has some form of social income, or they would not be able to survive. But few people in India have more than one or two forms of social income or enough of any one form as to ensure they can have a life of sufficient income security.

This book sets out to map the level and pattern of social income, drawing on a detailed survey conducted in the state of Gujarat in 2007-8. The data was experimental, providing proxy measures of the several components of social income, and showed how some forms of income are distributed heavily in favour of those with high money incomes, and certain other forms are less unequally distributed. The policy conclusions are stark, indicating clearly that government agencies need to redesign policy and restruture social income in favour of lower-income groups

With the bursting of the econmic bubble in the early 1990's Japan's public and private sectors have undergone dramatic change. William Farrell analyzes the economic superpower's turmoil in the political, bureaucratic and business arenas and offers a candid look at opportunities and strategies now open to U.S. business in Japan. A practical compendium of useful and up-to-date information, this book cuts through the stereotypical fog and is a valuable resource for business people, policy makers, and academics. Despite the recent economic crisis, Japan still accounts for two-thirds of the entire Asian economy. However, in 1998, unemployment reached an historic high, the stock market plummeted, financial institutions were failing, and bankruptcies were a daily occurrence. William Farrell analyzes the discord in the political, bureaucratic, and business arenas and offers a candid look at opportunities and strategies now open to U.S. business. This timely book allows the reader to comprehend and act upon these public and private sector changes taking place in one of the world's largest economies. Former Vice President of the United States and Ambassador to Japan, Walter F. Mondale, provides a foreword. The book also includes a comprehensive chronology of key events from 1994 through to the present. The connections between Japanese business and government are shown in graphic form. The recent history of the Japanese economy is revealed with a fascinating look at the inner working of the nation's most influential organizations. Additionally, U.S. and Japanese leadership and decision-making styles are compared, and the myth of a never-changing Japan is challenged. After reviewing and analyzing these key issues, the concluding chapter discusses how one becomes a participant in the process and identifies emerging opportunities. As a practical resource of useful and current information, this book cuts through false predictions of doom and demystifies the complexity of the Japanese bureaucracy.
