About the Webinar
Students for Liberty South Asia is organising a Webinar on “Why is India Poor?” with Dr. Parth J. Shah
Webinar Date and Time: Thursday, February 27th at 5 PM IST
Why is India poor? This is a vital question all of us have asked at one time or another, either as part of our formal studies or during our colloquial conversations.
Despite showing some sporadic improvements, poverty in India is still widespread and continues to plague the lives of millions. There have been numerous answers to the question as to why is India poor and most of the answers have revolved around issues such as population explosion, resource scarcity, cultural backwardness or simply the idea that Indians or South Asians are generally lazy people. Are these assumptions the root cause or are they merely the tip of the iceberg? What are those unseen causes of poverty?
In this SASFL Webinar on “Why is India Poor?” with Parth J. Shah, we will engage on and scrutinise the popular assumptions about India’s poverty and try to understand whether these dominant discourses have any veracity at all or are they merely
overlooking the larger problem.
