Anna Hazare movement is slowing down the economic progress of the nation

Filed under: Indian politics and economy — pramath @ 3:43 PM

As if the country’s coffers were being filled by a tap (faucet) and Anna was putting a stop inside the pipe, the prime minister says protests would slow down India’s economic progress.

With two key assumptions, the prime minister’s argument is correct:

  1. The world today has money to pump in India (and ignore the worldwide recession fears) and
  2. Our economy is a mercantile, investment and export dependent economy like China (and right in face of Manmohan Singh’s consumerist model of 1990’s)

Now let us assume that Anna is really putting a stop in the pipe – and all other allegations on him of being corrupt, a hand of RSS and an agent of America – are also correct.

Doesn’t this time of reduced flow offer an opportunity to repair the leaks in the tank?

And is politics nothing but applied mass psychology with a lot of opportunism?
