About "India's Economic Inquality"
A recent study by Oxfam (a conglomeration of charities seeking to alleviate poverty) found that economic inequality in India is drastically increasing. In 2017, the richest 1% of Indians saw their wealth increase by 39%, while the poorest 50% of the nation only got 3% richer. The nine richest Indians own as much money as the poorest half of the country. These statistics, along with the current trends across the world, present us with an opportunity to examine how economic forces play out in rapidly developing economies.
Should governments intervene to attempt to balance wealth? What protections and benefits should be afforded the poor? Is wealth inequality a challenge that requires unique attention? Parli debaters get to sharpen their economic analytics in this week’s release.
This week’s topics of debate include the New England Patriots, Israeli strikes in Syria. China’s war on pollution, autonomy to Bangsamoro, the shutdown, Turkey’s security ability, and migrant aid.
