Of Counsel: The Challenges of the Modi-Jaitley Economy

31 December 2018

Arvind Subramanian

Arvind Subramanian was the chief economic adviser to the Indian government from 2014 to 2018. This was one of the most turbulent periods of economic governance and policymaking in recent decades, containing everything from demonetisation to the introduction of the goods and services tax. Subramanian addresses the overleveraging of public-sector banks, the fraught links between the state and the private sector, the changing relationship between the state and the individual, and the ever-pervasive issues surrounding climate change.
