The socio-politics of producing silk and accumulating gold in a South Indian town through the liberalisation reform period 


This thesis discusses the impact of liberalisation reforms on a two hundred year old silk reeling cluster, in a South Indian town called Ramanagaram, where production unit owners and hired workers from marginalised social groups are engaged in the extraction of raw silk thread in home-based units. It presents a localized, sector-based study that contributes to understanding the diverse ways in which neoliberalism has entered policy and has impacted production and accumulation in the Indian economy.
