Contributor(s): Miranda, Mario [Illustrator].
Material type: materialTypeLabelBookPublisher: New Delhi Penguin Viking 2004Edition: 3rd ed.Description: xxxii, 303 p.ISBN: 9780670057740.Subject(s): Wealth | Economics | CapitalismDDC classification: 339.2 Summary: When Jamsetji Tat started a trading firm in 1868, few could have guessed that he was also starting an important chapter in the making of modern India. Jamsetji saw that the three keys to India's industrial development were steel, hydroelectric power, and technical education and research. A century and a half later, the Tatas can claim with justice to have lined up to the vision of their founder. This edition includes the story of how the Tatas, with Ratan Tata at the helm, have had to grapple with change in the post-1992 era of economic reforms, when the opening up of India to the world came as both a challenge and a blessing. In a frank epilogue, Ratan Tata talks about the difficulties he faced in implementing change, including resistance from his colleagues. This new edition also has a postscript on the Nano, which has given the most global prominence to the Tata brand. The Creation of Wealth is R.M. Lala's bestselling account of how the Tatas have been at the forefront in the making of the Indian nation-not just by their phenomenal achievements as industrialists and entrepreneurs but also by their significant contributions in areas like factory reforms, labour and social welfare, medical research, higher education, culture and arts, and rural development. https://penguin.co.in/book/non-fiction/the-creation-of-wealth/
