India has entered the fifth decade of her history as a unitary democratic republic. The successes and failures over the past forty years are relative to the promise that had been held out by India's struggle for independence over the previous 100 years. There is now a need for discussion of where the country is with respect to that promise. This volume is a major contribution to the discussion of India's agenda for the next 15 or 20 years.

"Free to Choose" was an international best-seller in 1980. Its forceful message influenced a number of world leaders -- among them Ronald Reagan and Margaret Thatcher. The Friedmans explained how free markets enable people to make the best use of their talents. In " Tyranny of the Status Quo, " Milton and Rose Friedman describe a remarkable political phenomenon: the uniform tendency in government to reverse the declared policies of leaders whether left or right. In the first six to nine months following their election, Reagan, Thatcher, and Mitterand, too, initiated big changes. Soon, each was frustrated by the "Iron Triangle" which preserves the status quo. In the triangle's corners are the direct beneficiaries of laws, the bureaucrats who thrive on them, the politicians who seek votes. (source: Nielsen Book Data)

Friedman discusses a government system that is no longer controlled by "we, the people." Instead of Lincoln's government "of the people, by the people, and for the people, " we now have a government "of the people, by the bureaucrats, for the bureaucrats, " including the elected representatives who have become bureaucrats.
