Pandemic Polarizations and the Contradictions of Indian Capitalism


From: The Socialist Register 2022


Jayati Ghosh provides a penetrating analysis of ‘pandemic polarizations’ amidst the contradictions of Indian capitalism. By focusing on India, Ghosh focuses on how the Covid-19 pandemic has shown the flaws in India’s precarious foundations in establishing itself as potential ‘power player.’ Gosh does this by discussing topics such as ‘Hindutva authoritarianism’ and Narendra Modi, the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), government inaction, inequality, poverty, and the broader development project within India.
