Governments must listen to voices from the past

'In economic matters governments should not take sides based on religion and caste,' says T C A Srinivasa-Raghavan. There is nothing more satisfying than re-inventing the wheel. Economists generally are particularly good at it, and Indian economists are even better. If you don't believe me, just read the writings of pre-1947 Indian economists in J Krishnamurty's Towards Development Economics: Indian Contributions, 1900-1945. Your eyes will pop open.
