Host Harry Kreisler welcomes UC Berkeley economist Pranab Bardhan to discuss his new book, "Awakening Giants, Feet of Clay." Bardhan discusses his interest in poverty and inequality in the context of his intellectual odyssey. He focuses on the myths and realities surrounding the emergence of China and India, addressing several questions including: What have these countries achieved and how? How do they compare in terms of inequality and social welfare? What are the factors that explain their reemergence as economic powerhouses? Will they succeed in reconciling economic efficiency with democratic accountability? (#21410)
