Annotation:In this virulent critique of global capitalism and free trade, Sharma defines the “new economic policy” as an extension of “the colonial paradigm of development” in both its aims and effects. Describing the objectives of the new economic policy as the exploitation of natural resources, labor, and the creation of captive markets for merchandise, he highlights the devastating effects such policies have on indigenous peoples and urges the Indian state to take a stronger role in protecting its tribal peoples and natural resources.
