Economic Freedom of the States of India: 2013

The Economic Freedom of the States of India 2013 report shows how the states have become freer over time and how Gujarat has widened its lead on the index. The report also includes a chapter on how Bihar, India’s poorest state, took advantage of improved national policies to achieve double‐​digit growth. Another chapter documents how centralization at the national level violates the Constitution and constrains the economic freedom of the states.
