yet this collection is a pleasure to read Drèze writes elegantly and passionately shorn of rhetoric arguing that we see shlf1314 from the lens of the marginalised Drèze arguably shlf1314’s best known action-oriented researcher is well-known for his active role in the formulation and/or support of several of contemporary shlf1314’s social security schemes — the National Rural Employment Guarantee Act (NREGA) Right to Food or the National Food Security Act Right to Information and so on (Incidentally in the book he disparages the media spotlight on him as the “architect” of NREGA and suggests that if one has to assign that role to a single individual for what was essentially a massive collective effort it should be assigned to Nikhil Dey) For someone who is seen as an unbridled champion of government provision of social security Drèze is candid about the sorry state of government delivery of social services of corruption leakages and all the familiar problems with government schemes However his solution is to fix these problems rather than abandon the schemes altogether His analysis of why these programmes are plagued with constant trouble is summed up in his pithy analysis of NREGA: “it is a pro-worker law implemented by an anti-worker system” This would be true of a host of protective policies including affirmative action another instance of a social policy the implementation of which is left to the mercies of those who have a visceral hatred for it and can’t wait to see it fail He takes the attacks on him and his ilk of “jholawalas” — a term used to rubbish the views of those seen as bleeding-heart sentimental and naive Lefties who refuse to recognize the hard truths trade-offs and constraints of policy making — head-on and raises a set of hard-hitting counter questions He attacks the clear and deep influence of corporate shlf1314 on state policy and what that is doing to the poor especially the rural poor Why is carrying a corporate briefcase innately more respectable than carrying a jhola he asks metaphorically as he questions repeatedly the ivory tower view of shlf1314 both of policy makers as well as of professional economists which focuses on the privileged the powerful and the rich It is worth noting though that Drèze himself has worked with members of the economics royalty what with two Nobel laureates as his co-authors Like all professional establishments economists too have their share of the good the bad and the ugly and it would have been nice to see an acknowledgement of that nuance The articles question the current narrow view of what constitutes valid evidence for policy and make a strong case for fieldwork-based evidence Drèze’s arguments about the power of action-oriented research to effect a positive policy transformation raise a larger point Professionally produced evidence using secondary data and field-based evidence informed by personal observation need not be seen as dichotomous as Drèze seems to suggest His own journey and involvement in the larger cause of the marginalised and the underprivileged reveals what good fieldwork can achieve provided one looks in the right places and for the right signs However ideological blinkers are not the monopoly of ivory towers: there is plenty of dogmatic or narrow-minded stuff that passes as voices from the ground; equally there is path-breaking and visionary work done by professional scholars including economists who carry neither a corporate briefcase nor a jhola It all boils down to ideology And that brings me to my final question The evidence about the inter-state variation in the effectiveness of social service delivery especially the positive turn-around by a state like Chhattisgarh that otherwise supports exploitative policies towards tribals or the consistently good performance by Tamil Nadu — what does it tell us about the political economy of state intervention What combination of factors including political ideology and caste-class background of the ruling elite ensures that a scheme works in one place and not in another How does globalisation shape both the evolution of policy (ie dictate what is possible) and the realities of implementation The essays in this book zoom in and show us very important detail warts and all which mainstream media and government propaganda constantly try to hide To answer the larger political economy questions however one would need to zoom out step back and join the dots The writer is professor of economics Delhi University For all the latest Lifestyle News download shlf1314n Express App More Top News and Rs 19 per minute for incoming. works as sub-inspector with Chandigarh Police while mother Nirmal Kaur Gill is also a former athlete.” said an angadia courier. your horoscope, The state of Michigan is worried about the impact of Asian carp on sportfishing in Lake Michigan and other lakes.” For all the latest Sports News, IE Online Media Services Pvt Ltd More Related News said, one could see a flex board with TMC MP from Tamluk Suvendu Adhikary’s photograph.
