Teaching Notes: Why Growth Matters

In Why Growth Matters: How Economic Growth in India Reduced Poverty and the Lessons for Other Developing Countries, two preeminent experts on the Indian economy argue that despite myriad development strategies, only one can succeed in alleviating poverty: the overall growth of the country's economy. These teaching notes, by Jagdish Bhagwati, provide an overview of the text and discussion questions for use in the classroom.


What will be the effect of India's general election on relations with its neighbors, the EU, and the United States?

Historically, India's foreign policy has not oscillated on a partisan basis, exemplifying the American adage: politics stops at the water's edge. This doesn't mean politics has no effect on foreign policy in India; it is, however, more attenuated with powers farther away, and amplified with smaller neighbors.


India's Change Election

More than eight hundred million Indians will head to the polls next month to elect a new government that must tackle corruption and a fizzling economy, explains CFR's Alyssa Ayres.

The Diplomat: Could a ‘Third Front’ Win?

"With no major party likely to win an outright majority of 272 and with Congress's vote-share likely to crumble, if the BJP underperform or fail to woo coalition partners a third front government may just steal a victory."


The Economist: A Useful Campaign

"For years Congress dominated nationally by ignoring how growth is sustained, but promising handouts, especially to villagers, through make-work schemes, subsidies on food, fuel and fertiliser and cash transfers. That approach now brings shrinking electoral returns, ironically, as rural voters get less poor."


Pew Research: Indians Want Political Change

"Seven-in-ten Indians are dissatisfied with the way things are going in India today, according to a new Pew Research Center survey. And, with the Indian parliamentary elections just weeks away, the Indian public, by a margin of more than three-to-one, would prefer the Hindu-nationalist opposition Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) to lead the next Indian government rather than the Indian National Congress (INC), which heads the current left-of-center governing coalition."

FP: Will India's Next Leader Be Banned from America?

"Pollsters say the BJP is now widely expected to win next year's general election, which would make the party's controversial prime ministerial nominee, Narendra Modi, the next leader of India. The State Department won't say whether a Prime Minister Modi would be allowed entrance to the United States, but experts say the question looms large over the U.S.-India relationship."
