In Fault Lines, Rajan makes a case for looking beyond the shortsighted blame-game that targets only greedy bankers. There are serious fl aws in the global economy, he writes, and an even more debilitating crisis awaits us if those faults are not addressed right now. Rajan demonstrates how the individual choices-made by bankers, government officials and ordinary homeowners-that collectively brought about the economic meltdown were rational responses to a defective global financial order: specifically, a mismatch between the incentives and the dangers involved in taking on risks. He traces the deepening fault lines in a world overly dependent on the indebted American consumer to power economic growth and stave off global downturns. In Fault Lines, Rajan outlines the hard choices that all nations must make to ensure greater stability and lasting prosperity. Importantly, he examines how the Indian development experience differs from that of other fast-growing economies. Despite India’s recent successes, he argues that the country must act decisively to maintain its people-oriented growth. This unique development path, he contends, will be a compelling role model-a triumph of rapid growth in a flourishing democracy.
