The Rajya Sabha MP explains what could, should and shouldn’t be done to boost the economy.
Rajeev Gowda is a Rajya Sabha MP, national spokesperson of the Congress party, and a former professor at the Indian Institute of Management, Bengaluru. In a conversation with Meghnad S, Gowda talks about the major factors dampening India’s economy.
He offers insights into what could, should and shouldn’t be done to boost the economy. Going beyond the conventional discourse on the economic slowdown, he discusses exactly why a low GDP growth rate, increase in unemployment, and a disconnected stock market harms the common man.
Gowda also candidly deconstructs popular economic jargon and defends the Congress’s political moves in Maharashtra. He suggests what he thinks could be done better to bring the Congress back on the national political map.
