Confronting Amartya Sen’s view: Why WHO’s methodology on malnutrition is hopelessly flawed for India
By Arvind Panagariya
In a recent TV interview, when the anchor asked Amartya Sen how he would respond to economists Arvind Panagariya and Swaminathan Aiyar who had questioned the basis of his estimate of 1,000 deaths per week due to non-implementation of the food security Bill, he prefaced thus, “Panagariya I don’t think actually believes there is much undernourishment in the country. He thinks this is a myth – at least this is the headline of his paper.”
