Spring ’22 Inspiration Lecture #2

Making India Prosperous

Wednesday, April 27, 6:30PM (New Delhi)

Dr. Kalyan Singhal
McCurdy Professor of Operations and Supply-Chain Management
Merrick School of Business
University of Baltimore

Summary: “Because of its size, India’s prosperity affects not only the well-being of all Indians, but also that of everyone else in the world. In order to imagine our future, we must first understand our present and how our past led us here. I will therefore begin by describing India’s history from 1757, when the British arrived, to 1947 when they left. I will also offer glimpses of India before the British occupation. Having established this historical foundation, I will then discuss both our extraordinary accomplishments and also our most substantial mistakes and failures since independence This journey along history’s path should lead us to a promising vision of our future and to the beginning of the road that will lead us there.

The current discourse about the Indian economy is impeded simply because some basic facts are not broadly known or publicized. Once we are all working from the same facts, we will more easily reach a national consensus as to how to pursue prosperity and development on all fronts. I believe our vibrant political democracy must be accompanied by an economic democracy in which everyone has opportunities commensurate with their capabilities and efforts. Social democracy will naturally follow.”
