“Inclusive Capitalism and Democracy in India” Bill Clinton

 

This is interesting and exciting about Mr. Clinton’s take on India and Mr. Modi as the new Prime Minister.

Inclusive Capitalism and Democracy sounds very good to me. What do you think?

    I think they sounds good but I am not sure I understand the relationship between the two.

      Well, I am neither an economist nor a historian, but what I got was that to have inclusion democracy and capitalism is to tweet the concepts to include more people in the process with the result of lifting all up. India is a microcosm of peoples, languages, faith systems and there has to be inclusion. With 1.4 billion souls there it is complicated and they do it !

  2. Good to see the US turn around on this.
    Now that the BJP has come into power with complete majority and is widely represented in many of the states, the US and the west takes a benign view of Modi. Did not Clinton know of the Modi government in Gujarat prior to the poll results ?
    Clinton govt’s scorn at the the earlier BJP government, its efforts to contain India after the nuclear test in 1998 and the strength of will that prevailed in the end – all these are well documented in a book -‘Engaging India’- by Strobe Talbott, the then chief negotiator from the US with Jaswant Singh, the then foreign minister. My review of the book is available at :

      Thanks for the review. I have no doubt that the US made poor choices in their dealing with India. Now India has a strong leader. The US could learn from her! Now even the Indian Americans who were luke warm supporting Mr. Modi at best are giving him a huge party expecting 60,000-80,000 people when he visits the US in September. I have been a Modi admirer since we lived in Ahmadabd. I know he is not without his faults but I am very encouraged by the beginning of his tenure. There will be 5 million toilets constructed by the end of September in response to his campaign promise of “Toilets instead of Temples!”
