A Short History of Globalization

and India

By the 1980s, India had fallen behind other developing countries, such as China and Brazil, despite having one of the largest working populations in the world.

In the 1990s, the Indian government initiated a process of bureaucratic and other reforms known collectively as Liberalization, Privatization and Globalization (LPG).

Points for Discussion

Questions

  • Q 1: What conditions (economic, cultural; local, national) might lead a class of people to think that “freedom means owning things”?
  • Q 2: Can local economic changes “cancel” patriarchy? Are these women just fooling themselves ?
