Issues of growth and welfare are likely to come up again in the election campaign The Sen-Bhagwati argument was a marker of the debate Is it really about welfare versus growth A: People like Bhagwati believe we should concentrate on economic growth and the poor will ultimately be helped; whereas if you concentrate on other things growth might suffer and as a result so will the poor In that chain of arguments there is a dual process One is that high growth means more jobs So if the poor have more jobs they will have more income Two if there’s growth the economy expands and taxes go up With that money you can fund anti-poverty programmes On the face of it this is a plausible argument But it doesn’t always work For instance even in the highest growth period in India say between 2003-08 most of the evidence shows that employment didn’t grow much Now from a poor person’s perspective what’s the point of growth if you cannot get a job For example the highly cited Gujarat model claims a high rate of growth But employment grew only marginally That is the general trend: high growth doesn’t necessarily lead to higher employment Bhagwati’s first channel needs to be shown to be working If you look at the employment data the only industry in India that created significant jobs in the high growth period is the construction industry Let me not go here into the issue why employment grows so sluggishly in India Regarding the indirect channel my objection is that it’s not automatic Most of the data show that in India much of the revenue goes towards subsidies Analysis shows that the overwhelming proportion of subsidies in India go to the relatively better off the rich the corporate sector and the middle class So it’s not necessarily true that just because the government gets more money it will spend on the poor Again let’s look at Modi’s Gujarat government Under Modi’s tenure I saw data that the total amount of subsidies to the corporate sector especially in the form of tax concessions and capital subsidies was 10 times what was spent on subsidies to agriculture and food subsidies etc In that context people like Sen say that since it is not automatic that the money coming to the government is spent on the poor we have to shout for it In my judgement they are trying to give strength to the voices of the poor so that more money is spent on them The problem is that even if they succeed in getting the government to spend more money it may not always reach the poor So there is the question of delivery mechanisms Sen and Dreze should emphasise this more Also they give the impression that all you need to do for growth is spend more money on health education and nutrition and that will make people more productive which will lead to growth I think that yes when workers are healthier and better educated they will be more productive But that is not enough Even when you have a productive workforce you need other things like physical infrastructure and a good investment climate Private investors need the right incentive to invest Just having a productive workforce is not enough and one has to pay attention to some of the reform issues emphasised by Bhagwati Q:Given all the talk of the Gujarat model how would you rate Modi’s governance record A: Modi has tried to make governance his main election plank because he thinks he has a good record He has done some good things like electricity reform which has gone quite far in Gujarat He has also done well in taking quick decisions and he completely controls the government But that won’t translate at the Centre; governing this vast complex heterogeneous country is very different His style is to steamroll over opposition but at the national level this would be a major problem His personality is polarising and he creates controversy rather than building consensus Even if this works in Gujarat on a pan-India level he will have serious problems In terms of political governance 2002 was a disastrous governance failure Modi will of course say that the SIT has given him a clean chit There are problems with this position but even ignoring those he cannot deny that something horrible happened under his watch The responsibility is on you particularly when you control the government with so firm a hand Your own people have now been indicted If a politician looks the other way or subcontracts the job of communalism to others it is a sign of extremely bad governance Vajpayee spoke of Modi deviating from rajdharma which is the Sanskrit word for good governance Someone rebuked by his own prime minister for a lapse in rajdharma cannot go around thumping his “56-inch chest” on governance On economic governance Modi has many achievements But at the same time one has to recognise that he has given a lot of subsidies to the corporate sector Modi may be business-friendly but he’s not necessarily market-friendly One should distinguish between the two If you embrace subsidies you can’t then complain about welfare programmes for the poor You’re giving doles to the corporate sector who deserve it much less In manufacturing Gujarat’s rank among Indian states was number two 30 years back and it has remained number two under Modi Much of the industrial growth under Modi has been in petroleum refineries which create very few jobs Gujarat’s delivery mechanism for public services is not particularly notable It is not bad but other states have done much better In general Tamil Nadu and Himachal Pradesh have performed much better than Gujarat If you compare the 2001 and 2011 Census figures on literacy Gujarat’s rank among the states actually declined Modi’s trumpeting of himself as Vikaspurush cannot hide the fact that in overall economic performance (counting both growth and welfare services) quite a few other states have done much better Q: Decentralisation is an idea that has gained prominence with the rise of the AAP What are your views A: It is good that Arvind Kejriwal is in favour of decentralisation Having said that I find in him an insufficient appreciation of the problems of decentralisation He thinks mohalla sabhas are going to do everything but mohalla sabhas in large parts of Delhi would be mostly RWAs which are middle class not aam aadmi I have worked on decentralisation for the last 15-20 years and most of my village survey work is in West Bengal Decentralisation has partly worked there but there are still big problems There is collusion between local politicians and other vested interests They essentially capture the panchayat maybe less in Bengal than in UP where the sarpanch is essentially in the pocket of the local politician and landed interests Even in West Bengal there is a lot of political clientelism Capture is a big problem It is much easier to capture a panchayat than the Lok Sabha One of the reasons decentralisation hasn’t worked in India is because we haven’t really embraced the idea We passed 73rd and 74th Constitutional Amendments but didn’t follow through at the level of the State governments So even if you have a good panchayat you don’t have the money The money is coming from above and that’s where the power is Even if the panchayat is not captured it won’t succeed unless it has more autonomy and power The other issue is that its not enough to have money Quite often in villages there is no expertise A lot of corruption takes place because there simply isn’t the capability to do book-keeping or auditing Ultimately it is a matter of money because if there was a lot of money expertise could be hired But funds from panchayat budgets go unspent because viable projects aren’t undertaken or completed due to a lack of expertise Q: Corruption has emerged as an election issue and we’ve seen the AAP form a government on that plank How effective do you think something like the Lokpal is A: Kejriwal and his party should be lauded for bringing the issue in the open but they don’t seem to have thought it through They always talk of punishing the bribe-taker The lokpal they want may be effective in punishing the official What about the much wealthier bribe-giver To me that is just as if not more important There are also some institutional issues here One there has to be institutional change so that the bribe-giver doesn’t have the incentive to give bribes Two this assumes that all the corruption is official corruption But a large part of corruption in India is within the private sector Lokpal can’t do anything about that Three they haven’t thought enough about why there is corruption You are a powerful public official and I have to go to you as a supplicant for a death or marriage or caste certificate etc I have to please you so I pay a bribe You have the power because you are the only person who can give me the certificate What if there were a hundred other people who could also give me the certificate Then there would be competition and bribery would decline For example in India you have a lot of corruption in the passport office You don’t see that in the US but it’s not because they are more moral than us There you go to the nearby post office and apply for the passport Suppose the postal officer asks for a bribe you go to another post office You deprive the postal officer of the monopoly power over passport applications Much official corruption occurs because of monopoly power Many supporters of AAP think corruption is just a matter of personal morals or insufficient punishment China has the severest punishment for corruption (sometimes execution) yet corruption is rampant there Even if I assume everyone is immoral dishonest there are ways of reducing corruption by changing the institutional rules to create competition One needs to come up with institutional changes that could reduce the incentive to give a bribe The AAP’s approach so far has been rather naive Q: Do you think Aadhaar can address corruption A: I am generally in favour of Aadhaar though I understand that there are some concerns people have raised about privacy But I think the potential benefits from Aadhaar outweigh some of these But I don’t think we should expect too much from it Some types of corruption problems will be solved but others will not For instance for the food security bill or NREGA Aadhaar will solve the problem of fake job cards or faked identities So if your biometric data don’t match it can address that But it can’t solve the problem of faked BPL cards for instance Because BPL is means-tested but Aadhaar is not Some of the corruption will remain like the non-poor grabbing the resources meant for the poor because Aadhaar cannot weigh the definition of the poor People should have realistic expectations A good thing is that it is portable where migrant workers will be now able to access services or pavement dwellers with no fixed address can get say ration cards However there are legal issues like whether it is voluntary or not If it is voluntary then it might not be as useful What has started worrying me in the last 3-4 weeks is that the Congress party seems to be backtracking on its own big project It is particularly wrong sign when you start with big fanfare and then backtrack — at least that’s the impression Q: Are the civil services to blame for the gapss in delivery A: In the civil services the system creates warped incentives?
