India's economic resilience in the face of global scrutiny – Firstpost

The Indian economy is growing rapidly and lifting many people out of extreme poverty. PTI

The Orientalism eloquently articulated by Edward Said in his works is quickly being questioned in the Indian context and the rest of the world is listening. Quick-witted remarks on comments that undermine India's common man's ability to fight for a Western-adjacent elite have become commonplace in international relations, and realpolitik is rarely covered with reams of euphemisms. This includes discussions about intelligence, defense, interference in India's internal affairs and the like.

However, the economic front may be the last bastion in which the West's Orientalist gaze is likely to be challenged by a purely academic defense. The problem is not that gentlemanly responses are improper; The point is rather that a political vendetta cannot be prevented through the academic articulation of facts. Finally, the perpetrator is rarely uneducated in data analysis, but rather has a vested interest in misrepresenting it, often through outright lies.

Take, for example, Ashoka Mody's article in which he refutes the data that poverty in India has fallen almost three times as fast as the last decline. Apparently this is not a topic that should be discussed over numbers, a topic he defines most delicately as “The numbers stink.”

Instead, the Indian government's calculation of 2023 GDP using global standards is somehow linked to the 2011 census to illustrate through tone rather than data that both are inaccurate. When a similar approach is used to tie together a few less disparate facts, such as the matter of Project Syndicate publishing Mody's articles and periodically also publishing the Soros father-son duo, one can understand why India's vehement rejection of economic growth must be so disingenuously misrepresented.

The publication provides India's political opposition with a global far-left platform by publishing Shashi Tharoor in place of one of India's truly important politicians, along with fear-mongering articles en masse by openly anti-India commentators whose storied legacy rests on the denigration of the nation.

The analysis can hardly be expected to be objective. Nonetheless, the malice expressed in this particular piece by Mody makes the rapid eradication of poverty in India seem like a personal blow to the author.

“In analyzing the recently released consumption expenditure data, Bhalla and Bhasin appear to have converted the $1.90 threshold into rupees at the IMF’s reported purchasing power parity rate of 22.9 rupees per dollar. Consequently, their analysis categorizes people as poor only if they cannot spend Rs 45 a day,” he writes. Unfortunately for him, it's an easy lie to spot because the methodology that uses the World Bank's poverty line of $1.90 per capita per month is accurate
Rs. 1454 in rural areas and Rs. 1750 in urban areas
instead of the PPP method reported by the IMF has already been published by Bhalla and Karan Bhasin and re-specified in a recent report MoneyControl Article.

But for those seeking confirmation in an anti-India story and unwilling to take a closer look at facts that might refute their beliefs, Mody's article offers a masterclass in misrepresentation. This false data is why he justifies the title of his article and says that it is like wishing poverty away. Instead, through his miscalculation, he wants the multi-dimensional uplift of millions of Indians who now have access to electricity, running tap water, gas cylinders, a leak-free public distribution system and direct cash transfers from a welfare government focused on digital infrastructure to resolve once deadlocked conditions avoid corruption.

Inflation inequality is also pointed out, blaming the current government for not providing the accurate figures that would support his calculations. At the same time, subsidies that address exactly the same inequality for the large bottom percentile of the population and include some of the animal welfare benefits mentioned above are simply ignored.

Essentially, this article is about the Indian government presenting data that proves the opposite of reality to validate the views of those who have benefited from a downturn in India and that does not reflect concern for those suffering from poverty , which marks them as fair game for the motivated comment. Sophistry cannot hope to change the fact that it is these masses who are most affected by the changes on the ground. It is the same bottom percentile that voted the incumbent Indian government back to power with its largest mandate ever in 2019, and it appears that will be the case this year too.

Further partial data is inserted for the specific purpose of concealment – the statement of “out-of-pocket medical expenses” ignores the implementation of the Prime Minister's Jan Arogya Yojana insurance scheme offered by the national government. Likewise, the millions of new bank accounts, access to education, information and employment disappeared thanks to the strong penetration of telecommunications infrastructure and the immense improvement in mobility even in regions that until 2014 were completely ignored by a vast network of railway lines, according to a conjectural analysis that focused on parroting talking points They have been resisted by India's political opposition over the years and have not adhered to an economist who argues in good faith to re-examine data that would help assess the extent of poverty in India and to take appropriate measures. Furthermore, a vicious explanation of inequality that portrays every Indian businessman as an example of vast inequality while writing for an American capitalist known for praising austerity for the masses and luxury for the elites is woefully incoherent. But the hypocrisy is to be expected as India moves closer to its goal of becoming a developed nation by 2047, rather than bowing to the gaze of the Western man who benevolently helps a slumdog millionaire realize his dreams as slums and people are forced to Living in them provides a backdrop for photogenic goodwill.

Ashoka Mody can choose to find poverty in an economy that grows on its own terms, while the population can choose to abandon poverty. After all, American economists rarely bear the consequences of their incorrect metrics; The tired Indian is not ready to endure global assessments and calculations based on their comments.
