I’m rebuilding the International Indian Economists Association – a concept I had floated in 1998 but could not pursue due to ill health. To kickstart it I’ve opened this little website as also a Linkedin Group. Please join the Group if you are an Indian with economics training.
Should you be interested in discussing further, please write to me at sabhlok AT yahoo DOT com.
==THE ORIGINAL FLYER STATED THE FOLLOWING (It is no longer relevant but can form a starting point for further work)==

1.To encourage economic research, especially (but not limited) to continually improve the economic condition of India. 2.To issue publications on economic subjects, and in particular, a policy-oriented, refereed economic journal. 3.To archive historical records relating to the progress of Economic science in India. In particular, to prepare a web-accessible archive including bibliographies and wherever possible, scanned images, of all published material relating to the Indian economic siutation and other material published by economists of Indian origin. 4.To encourage perfect freedom of economic discussion, without any partisanship. There would be no ‘official’ view of the Association on any topic. 5.To provide value to members such as promotion of careers, particularly of young economists, help in coordinating joint work, pre-refereeing papers to prepare papers for publication, and hosting various discussion forums, both public and internal, as well as announcement forums on specialized topics of interest. It is hoped that IIEA will be able to register itself within early 1999 with the support and help of active members.
