Income inequality a severe issue in India: Paul Krugman

“India should not go back to the ‘licence raj’ regime and the country should have a deliberate policy for fostering industries. Income inequality issue is a severe one in India. If the USA has an extremely hard time to tackle extreme inequality, then I got to worry about India.”

–        Nobel Prize-winning economist Paul Krugman at a virtual event organized by Ashoka University
