CASI in the News
CASI Director Devesh Kapur co-authored, along with T. V. Somanathan (Member, Indian Administrative Service) and Arvind Subramanian (Senior Fellow, Peterson Institute for International Economics and Centre for Global Development, and CASI IAB Member),a two-part series on land and Indian development titled “Land-Shackled” in the July 20-21, 2014 issues of Business Standard.
Part One (diagnostic) argues why and how land, perhaps even more than labor, might be the binding constraint on India’s development.
Part Two (prescriptive) offers some proposals for reform and how they might be implemented.
Additionally, Professor Kapur published “Western Anti-Capitalists Take Too Much For Granted” in the July 23, 2014 issue of Financial Times.
