Not just Subhas Bose Cong, BJP both turning Bharat Ratna into poll ploy

Subhas Bose does not need a Bharat Ratna even though the government might want to give him one.

Will Gujarat model work for India? For the most part, it will

Left intellectuals are being dishonest by attacking the Gujarat model without facts. The model has its flaws, especially in relying too much on trickle-down theories in tribal areas, but the model works, and is scalable to India #Narendra Modi #Amartya Sen #Gujarat Model #HDI #Modinomics

Sen and Bhagwati: Why quarrel when both are right?

Just like how both Monetarism and Keynesianism need to be used in harmony depending on circumstances, so should the Sen-Dreze and Bhagwati-Panagariya prescriptions be used together. #Economics #Amartya Sen #Poverty #FaceOff #Jagdish Bhagwati #Keynesian #Monetarism
