NEW DELHI: Post-Coronavirus, the government must set aside fiscal discipline and focus on stabilising the lives of thousands of workers in the informal sector. That’s the word from Rajat Kathuria, head of the economic policy think tank ICRIER. In an audio chat with StratNews Global’s Editor-in-Chief Nitin Gokhale and Editor Surya Gangadharan, Kathuria said the lives of all these people needs to be rebuilt in a sustainable manner given that they have lost their jobs and it may be some time before the “animal spirits” of the economy get cracking again. Also important, government must invest heavily in health and education, this is the biggest lesson to draw from the Coronavirus pandemic.
