India richening billionaires is wrongly hailed as the rise of India as Emerging global economic power. This booklet by eminent writer and activist Vandana Shiva traces the loot and plunder of natural resources during the era of neoliberal growth since the 1990s when crucial economic sectors such as power, telecommunications, infrastructure, mining and banking, including manufacturing sectors like iron, steel and ship building were opened up for private business ownership.

SEEDLING: Extract on Indian Agrofuels (2008)
Responding enthusiastically to the world agrofuel frenzy, the Indian government has promised a flurry of initiatives to encourage the largescale planting of agrofuel crops, particularly jatropha. Without waiting for the government support to be spelt out, corporations are already moving in, taking over resources that have traditionally been used by rural communities. As aresult, local people will find it harder to satisfy their food and fuel needs.Once again, it is the rural poor who will bear the cost of the agrofuel boom, while reaping few of the benefits.
