We need alternative metrics to complement GDP in order to get a more comprehensive view of development and ensure informed policy making that doesn’t exclusively prioritize economic growth. As a step in this direction, India is also beginning to focus on the ease of living of its citizens. Ease of living is the next step in the development strategy for India, following the push towards ease of doing business that the country has achieved over the last few years. The end goal is to have a more just and equitable society that is economically thriving and offering citizens a meaningful quality of life. The talk focussed on how we can bridge the divide between economic objectives and social objectives. The Talk was on February 12, 2020 and was Co-sponsored by Shorenstein Asia-Pacific Research Center (APARC) and US-Asia Technology Management Center.
