Nearly 70 years later, why is India not yet a wealthier country? According to entrepreneur Rajesh Jain and economist Atanu Dey, the reasons are manifold, but they have to do with a simple reality — that Indians are not yet economically free. What is worse is that socialist policies were added to an already toxic system. These need to be replaced with new, pro-growth, pro-economic freedom policies. Jain describes himself as a serial tech and political entrepreneur.

Nilekani deals with mostly the same ideas and in much greater depth. Read More.
