Dr Champak Pokharel has reviewed the much-discussed Three Year Interim Plan whereas Dr Chiranjibi Nepal has analysed the Public-Private Partnership in Economic Development where he writes that economic growth without social justice is inhuman, but social justice without economic growth is impossible.
Tula Raj Basyal has analysed the White Paper on Economy and Prof Dr Gopal Prasad Pokharel gives the reader an insight of New Nepal's economic diplomacy.

The articles on Foreign Aid and challenges therein by Madhav Prasad Ghimire, Revenue Mobilisation and its challenges and possibilities by Balgovind Bista, Advantages and Disadvantages of Foreign Employment by Sthaneshwor Devkota, Local Government and Performance-based Funding in Nepal by Krishna Babu Joshi and State Restructuring by Dr Surendra KC are some interesting and academic reads in the book that provokes debate.
