New Delhi's Plan for Economic Recovery: What Is It, and Can It Work?

Despite its overwhelming victory in Parliamentary elections in May 2019, the Narendra Modi government in India has failed to reverse a deepening economic slowdown underway for more than a year. On February 1, New Delhi presented a new budget and unveiled its strategy for dealing with the downturn, and for reviving investor and consumer confidence for the remainder of the government’s five-year term. Suman Berry, a noted Indian economist and Wilson Center global fellow, will analyze this new strategy and identify potential markers of success for the coming year.
