Neo-liberalism has been a disaster for Nepal
20 November, 2017,
Why is neoliberalism bad for India and Nepal? What are its major flaws? Mahabir Paudyal and Prashant Lamichhane from myRepublica caught up with Professor C.P.

Downturn Blues
18 September, 2017, C.P. Chandrasekhar
The most recent deceleration in growth is the result of the inability of the system to sustain the artificial stimuli that the neoliberal policy environment facilitated. It is a problem that does not lend itself to easy resolution.
Why workers lose
30 May, 2017, C.P. Chandrasekhar
The IMF’s push to delink the decline in the share of labour in national income from the rise of finance, neoliberalism and globalisation leads to a set of banal prescriptions on how to deal with a problem that is at the centre of the crisis of capitalism today.
A Simple Arithmetic
25 May, 2017, Prabhat Patnaik
The advance GDP estimates for 2016-17, however calculated,show a grim picture of the economy. The real per capita income of the agriculture-dependent population, which constitutes half the country's populace, has remained stagnant or even marginally declined during the three years of the Modi government. While the pursuit of neoliberal policies can be held responsible for this, treating the aggregate growth as a “great achievement” for political mileage is unwarranted.
Budget 2017-18: Blinded by neoliberalism
27 February, 2017, C.P. Chandrasekhar
All that this government has is its unfounded belief that mere reform in the form of the demonetisation, digitalisation and the GST would deliver growth rather than recession.

Capitalism and the Oppressed Castes
29 April, 2016, Prabhat Patnaik
The development of capitalism in any society brings about a complete transformation in the way we look at all social questions including the question of caste oppression.
Growth through Redistribution
21 January, 2016, Prabhat Patnaik
Contrary to the portrayal by the neoliberal spokesmen, the Left position does not accept the growth versus redistribution dichotomy, rather asserts that growth can occur in a sustained manner through redistributive measures.

The Logic of Neoliberal Anti-Populism
27 August, 2014, C.P. Chandrasekhar
Pursuing fiscal consolidation by providing large transfers to the rich while trimming expenditures that benefit the poor is the best example of the ideology of anti-populism.

Big Business and Mr. Modi
16 April, 2014, C.P. Chandrasekhar
If India is not to be handed over to big business and a rabidly communal fringe, it is best to keep Narendra Modi out of the Prime Minister’s office.
Democracy, Neoliberalism and Inclusiveness
26 November, 2013, C.P. Chandrasekhar
A strategy of inclusive development is required instead of the rhetorical "inclusive growth" propagated by two main political parties in the run-up of next general election.
Class War at the Capital
19 September, 2013, Prabhat Patnaik
Indian State's treatment of workers under neoliberalism is not a normal "class war," but a "class war" in which the ruling classes are fast moving in the direction of fascism.
Two Parties, One Vision
06 February, 2013, C.P. Chandrasekhar
Despite the handicap stemming from the growing similarity of its economic policy with that of the BJP, the economic policy vision of the Congress party is unlikely to change.
India and the Congress Party
09 January, 2013, Jayati Ghosh
The Congress Party’s actions that appear insensitive, distant and even cynically patronising have alienated its core constituency of the poor, minorities and middle classes.
Tweaking Animal Spirits
08 August, 2012, C.P. Chandrasekhar
One element of the emerging policy consensus within India's economic policy establishment involves spurring demand for the private sector by diverting expenditure away from subsidies for the poor to finance investment. Simultaneously, a case is being made for providing more concessions to cajole the private sector into exploiting this opportunity.
Capitalism and Hunger
20 January, 2012, C.P. Chandrasekhar
After close to 65 years of independent national development, the level of child malnutrition in India remains unacceptably high. The capitalist growth of the worst variety fostered by neoliberalism and the consequent refusal of the government to directly address the problem explains the cause for this “national shame”.
Protest in the Age of Crises
02 November, 2011, C.P. Chandrasekhar
If the Occupy Wall Street movement is to acquire strength to actually confront the might of finance capital and the state it controls, it must find greater cohesion, with an organisational structure and a programme that goes beyond anger against the capitalist system and the condition to which it has reduced the majority.
