Theoretical and Policy Implications

(p.160) Chapter 7 Conclusion
Mobilizing Restraint

Emmanuel Teitelbaum

Cornell University Press

This concluding chapter summarizes the arguments made in the preceding chapters and outlines the implications of the analysis for broader theoretical and policy debates. It first discusses the theoretical implications for the study of democracy and the developmental state. It then turns to a discussion of the implications of the analysis for states' reversing of capital flight by comparing the experiences of Kerala and West Bengal—both so-called “red states” that have endeavored to overcome their reputations for worker militancy. This is followed by a discussion of whether investment promotion entails the co-optation of workers and the subjugation of their interests to the party. Finally, the chapter notes the implications of findings for future reforms in India and abroad.

Keywords:   democracy, developmental state, South Asia, capital flight, worker militancy, India, investment promotion
