4 Responses to Food Security Bill – Mother of All Subsidies

  1. Are you sure that food bill is going to be harmful for the nation? My gut feel tells me that the FSB is going to be a disaster but I am not sure about my conclusion. The reason being the presence of giant economists in favor of the bill. In fact there are giants both for and against the bill and that is really confusing the bill. May I cut-paste a request I put forth to Nitin Pai of acorn below? Here it goes:

    Nitin,
    Can you please seek out an expert supporting the Food-Security-Bill(FSB)? Can you run a debate-series with the pro-FSB person in your blog? The reply-counter-reply should continue till you two end in fact-disagreement or philosophical-disagreement. In case one person can convince the other, that will be great (but not necessary) for the conclusion of the debate.

    I ask because there is no platform which is conducting a reasonable debate about the issue. Print media is not running anything on these lines. TV-media is incapable of any kind of prolonged reasonable debate.

    I am a layman who is more than curious about FSB. I see stalwarts/experts on both side of the bill. Hence a debate (ideally written debate) will be very helpful to me.

    I am currently anti-FSB. All the blogs I follow are anti-FSB too. Sometimes I get the uncomfortable feeling of being in an echo chamber. I cannot find a single reasonable and detailed pro-FSB article.

  2. Sambaran,
    I am also anti-FSB. I hope that answers your query. I have just added a sarcastic article from Times of India on this blog page.. It just shows another flipside of the same anti-FSB..

  3. Thanks a lot for the blog as well as your response.
    My query was not your stance regarding FSB. My request is to seek out a pro-FSB person and run a debate with that person on your blog.

Delhi – Odd Vs Even Formula

January 2, 2016January 2, 2016

The actual success of the Delhi government’s odd-even formula will be known only by January 15, but if the response of most Delhiities on the first day is any indicator, then the risk taken by Arvind Kejriwal’s Aam Aadmi Party seems to have paid off.

The local government will review the effect on pollution after the 15-day trial and consider including two-wheelers in the second phase of the scheme.
