In “Hindutva, Economic Neoliberalism and the Abuse of Economic Statistics in India,” Jayati Ghosh describes how, at first sight, Prime Minister Modi’s unabashedly pro-big capital agenda could seem contradictory to his politics of hatred that severely disrupt economic growth. However, the ability of the government to persuade the public that the economy is doing well serves the neoliberal agenda by taming the resentment of the poor and enabling further concentration of wealth. The manipulation and/or destruction of the statistical system are decisive to the Modi government’s project.
