Amartya Sen on fifty years of Indian independence.
- This website
proposes solutions for India's poverty problems. IMHO, it is
rather simplistic and contains several factual errors
(eg. claims that India was once one of the richest countries in
the world while it was the fourth poorest in the world even in
1820 (HDR, 1999)). However, I thought it was interesting since
it is a rare optimistic look at the situation in India.
