For a fascinating discussion on the Indian political economy, Paul welcomed Sadanand Dhume, Resident Fellow at the American Enterprise Institute. Sadanand focuses on South Asia’s political economy, foreign policy, business, and society. He is also a South Asia columnist for the WSJ.
Sadanand discusses the politics of economic reform in India, laying out five reasons why he thinks we should not expect a lot of progress on the economic reform program in India over the next year. His perspectives are unique and come from a deep understanding of the structural drivers of Indian politics. Without a doubt, this is the most insightful discussion Paul has had on the Indian political economy.
