Demand for nutrients in India, 1993-2004

Raghav Gaiha, Raghbendra Jha, Vani Kulkarni

    Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


    The Deaton–Dreze (2009) explanation of a decline in calorie intake despite rapid economic growth in terms of lower calorie ‘requirements’ is incomplete. This chapter fills this gap by taking into account the influences of food prices, growing affluence, urbanization and life-style changes and less strenuous activity levels. Insights into changing consumer preferences are given.
