The Narendra Modi brand of reforms

Vivek Dehejia participated in a roundtable discussion titled “Is Prime Minister Narendra Modi an economic reformer?” moderated by Sadanand Dhume of AEI. Other panellists were Mihir Sharma of Business Standard and Milan Vaishnav of the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace.

In this Mint article,Vivek draws upon his discussion and writes that “…. if instead what you mean by economic reformer is a pragmatic, results-oriented, business- and investor-friendly political leader working to get the basics right—improve administrative efficiency, make existing regulations better, reduce red tape and corruption, streamline the clearances process, and empower states to grasp the nettle of reforms too politically difficult to pursue immediately at the centre (such as labour laws)—then Modi is your man”.
