The Broken Ladder: The Paradox and the Potential of India’s One Billion

Published By: Centre for Policy Research | Published Date: May, 02 , 2017

Talk by Anirudh Krishna, based on his book 'The Broken Ladder', which delves into the lives of ordinary individuals to take a ground-up view towards answering questions about the potential of civic participation in the growth of India's economy. Through decades-long investigations conducted on the ground, living in villages and investigating slum communities, Krishna reveals the eye-opening details of missed opportunities and the immense, but untapped, talent that can and should be honed, with immense consequences for both growth and equity. From presenting possible solutions to the problems of neediness and inequity, to mulling over ways of fixing inequalities of opportunity, his book provides a comprehensive account of India’s development strategies.
