Market Menagerie by Smita Srinivas

Market Menagerie, Health and Development in Late Industrial States. Smita Srinivas, 2012.

The author of Market Menagerie is an Assistant Professor in the Urban Planning program at Columbia University in New York City.

This book “examines technological advance and market regulation in the health industries of nations such as India, Brazil, South Africa, Nigeria, and Japan. Pharmaceutical and life science industries can reinforce economic development and industry growth, but not necessarily positive health outcomes. Yet well-crafted industrial and health policies can strengthen each other and reconcile economic and social goals.”
