Neo-liberalism in India
Shazia Farooqui - Aug 26,2020
Since neoliberal reforms were launched in India in 1992, economic disparity has come into sharp focus. The richest 1% of Indians own 51.5% of the country’s wealth while the bottom 60% own 4.7%, according to Credit Suisse. Between 2005-06 and 2015-16, the incidence of multidimensional poverty in India was almost halved, according to a report by the United Nations Development Programme. In absolute terms, this means that more than 271 million people were lifted out of poverty in that ten-year period.

In 2014, CNN reported the story of a missing airplane, which was known as MH370. During the first few minutes of the report, they informed the audience of the plane's itinerary, last known location, and current status. It was a concise and accurate assessment. However, then they realized they still had 23hours and 50 minutes of airtime to fill. CNN then introduced panels discussing conspiracy theories, graphics telling people what a plane looks like. Anchors brought in toy planes and used holographic planes to discuss the case of MH370. A news story worthy of a few minutes of reporting was bloated up to cover hours of reporting.

Gunshots echoed in the night air as smoke billowed in the distance. Over 150 dead. Almost 50,000 homeless. Hundreds of cars, government buildings, hotels, factories and houses, burnt. This was the aftermath of a series of deadly riots that occurred in the Oromia region of Ethiopia on the night of 30 June. The reason? The cold-blooded killing of Haacaaluu Hundeessaa.
