Super Century: India Must Resist Statism & Pursue Economic Reforms
No matter who governs India, the essential challenge remains the same: To resist the crippling old tropes of statism and neutrality and pursue economic liberalisation and global engagement at all costs, so that India might finally convert our potential into power. We have survived – thrived, even – decades of flawed governance and backward policies; imagine what we could do with visionary leadership and enlightened practices! Indians deserve as much. The global stakes are higher than ever, and the clock is ticking.
It’s all here in my latest book, Super Century: What India Must Do To Rise By 2050.
