Economics Seminar Series - Rohit Azad (Jawaharlal Nehru University)
Start Date: 2/17/2017Start Time: 2:30 PM
End Date: 2/17/2017End Time: 4:00 PM
Event Description:
The Department of Economics is pleased to have Dr. Rohit Azad (Jawaharlal Nehru) presenting at our Economics Seminar Series. He will be presenting a paper titled 'Is it India's Subprime? A Model of 'Riskless Capitalism'.

This paper seeks to theoretically analyse the change in growth patterns in post-reform India. While 1991 marks a break in the Indian economy in terms of its opening up, it was not the 1990s which saw spectacular rates of growth such as those seen in the 2000s. Our attempt here is to situate two significant booms that the post-reform period has witnessed so far, 2003/04 to 2007/08 and 2009/10 to 2010/11, in a macrotheoretic model.

Rohit Azad is a visiting scholar at The New School and the South Asia Institute, Columbia University. He teaches economics at the Centre for Economic Studies and Planning, Jawaharlal Nehru University, India. He has worked on the US economy, especially focussing at the role inequality has played in contributing to the Global economic crisis, which was published as It's Not Over by the Oxford University Press. His current areas of research are the corporate sector in India, monetary theory and policy and the political economy of growth.

The seminar is organized by Economics and Society and will be held of Friday, February 17th at 2:30pm in Room 307 Tier Building. All are welcome to attend.
