A quirky look at India using popular economics. Why does the stock exchange dip during a lunar eclipse? Why dont cars with safety features lead to fewer injuries? Why did Nehru ignore the Chinese threat in the lead-up to the 1962 war? Why is it that a stranger might risk his life to save yours on one day and a street full of passers-by might casually watch you bleed to death on another? In pithy, sparkling, bite-sized chapters, economists Vivek Dehejia and Rupa Subramanya tackle these seeming mysteries and unearth the real reasons why we are like this only. The answers are entertaining and surprising at every turn and reveal a picture of modern India as never seen before.
