But how plausible is this explanation It suggests that a political leaders age has something uniquely important to say about the policies she may pursue Yetappealing though it soundsthere is scant evidence in support of this hypothesis Ratherthere are perfectly plausible conventional explanations that help us explain the facts In particularpolitical economy theory points to the constellation of the three Is to help explain policy formation These are: ideasinterests and institutions The first I refers to the ideological framework orif you prefercognitive map of the political leader or party in question Thusfor instancea party ideologically committed to small government and free markets isother things equalmore likely to pursue economic reform than one committed to socialism and redistribution This explanation fits the experience of India in the early years after Independence With its overwhelming domination of the politythe Congress party couldarguablyhave pursued the economic model of its choice Yetthe socialist leanings of Prime Minister Jawaharlal Nehru decisively shaped Indias turn toward Central planning and away from a market-oriented systemthe consequences of which we are still living with Whether you agreed with him or notNehru was an idea politician who chose a state-led economic model for India because he fervently believed in it himselfquite apart from the political benefits or costs to himself or his party The second I refers to the self-interested calculation of their own interests that a leader or party will engage inand the impact this will have on their chosen policies Thusas an examplea party whose votes come from the working classes and which receives money from trade unions willother things equalbe likely to pursue policies that favour the interests of labour The Congress Partyafter PM Indira Gandhi broke up the partyis a perfect illustration of the potency of self-interest in the determination of government policy Pitching herself as the champion of the poordowntrodden and marginalisedIndira Gandhi succeeded in sweeping to power by winning votes handsomely among the rural poor and minority groupsand repaid her constituency by further socialising the economy and widening the scope of redistribution Yetfew would suggest this turn in the partys policies even further to the left than Nehru reflected ideological zeal on her part Ratherit was Machiavellian power politics at its most brilliantreflecting the primacy of interest or what we in India loosely call vote-bank politics The third I refers to the political and other institutions through which political activity and decision-making are filtered Thusfor instancepolicies will be formulated differently in a presidential system as compared to a parliamentary system Even among parliamentary governmentsWestminster systemswith first past the post elections in individual constituencieswill generate different outcomes than European-style proportional representation systems where parliamentarians are picked from party lists The importance of our inherited political institutions is self-evident in the lead-up to next years general elections As much as the mediaor perhaps even the publicwould like the contest to be a Rahul Gandhi vs Narendra Modi presidential battle royalethe reality will be that whichever political grouping manages to stitch together a viable coalition before and cruciallyafter the elections will end up in powerirrespective of the individual nominally at the helm during the campaign A Westminster system simply will not give you the fireworks of Barack Obama vs Mitt Romneyas in last years election campaign in the US In realityof coursedifferent combinations of the three Isalong with other factorswill help determine the choices politicians make The opening up of the Indian economy after 1991as has been observed by manyoccurred in an ambience of crisis and at the point of a gun Yetthe subsequent pursuit of policies that ended the worst excesses of the licence raj and ushered in an era of rapid economic growth represented at least some measure of conviction by PV Narasimha Rao and most notablyAtal Bihari Vajpayee and the BJP-led NDA governmentwho accelerated reforms during their time in office On the other sidethe stalling or outright abandonment of reform under the Congress-led UPA since 2004 reflects as much an opportunistic calculation of where the votes do and do not lie as it does an underlying lack of faith in markets and clinging to the old socialist ideology of the partys earlier incarnations Likewisethe complacency of all major political parties in the face of the ongoing growth debacle may well be explained by the sheer political calculus that hand-wringing about the poor state of the economy in advance of the elections is unlikely to be a major vote-gettermixed in with an underlying suspicion that halfway complete economic reform has brought us mostly crony capitalismrather than a genuinely thriving market economy So whats age got to do with it Not muchif anything Rahul Gandhis youth hasnt led him to profess ideas or policies markedly different from the elderly leadership of his party Nor could one plausibly argue that Manmohan Singhs advancing years account for his failures as an economic reformer After allneither Rao nor Vajpayee were spring chickens when they jump-started Indias economic rise In politicsage isafter alla number It is ideasinterests and institutions that reign supreme The writer is an economics professor at Carleton

for a fair trial We did not went to the court to stop Narsingh After the court ruled in Narsingh’s favour Sushil’s chapter was closed We didn’t go to higher court because we wanted the best wrestler to represent India and win a medal for the country" he said Kolkata: The football crazy fans of Kolkata who have missed out on booking tickets for the FIFA U-17 World Cup final scheduled on 28 October
