Editorial

Countering growing inequality

Indian social policy must raise health and education levels all around, as china has done

Facts

Inequalities are on a steady raise in India after 1991.

In India, in few of the states inequalities are less and have better developmental indicators than china.

The above facts conclude the following

Political narrative of explaining differences of growth and inequities is not complete and comparing democracy and communism to understand inequalities is a very simplistic narrative.

China has a greater participation of woman in work force and from 1970’s onwards Chinese spending on education and health is much higher.

China has emphasised manufacturing based growth and India service sector based growth.
