News Corruption now threatens to bring down a land of opportunity Four quarters of steady economic deceleration have caused widespread anxiety The talk of a new Hindu rate of growth different from the late Raj Krishnas famous 35 per cent per annumbut hovering around 5-6 per centfar below the 9-10 per cent Chindia dream has seriously commenced Is the current economic gloom justified Are we watching a short-run blipor a new downward trend To some extentIndias slowdown cannot be separated from the global economic realities The BRIC countries BrazilRussiaChina and India haveof latedeceleratedas has Europe But external economic reasons can only provide a partial explanation for the state of Indias economy All is not well internally To understand the internal causeslet us turn to what may be called a new triad of Indias political economy India has (i) the fifth largest concentration of dollar billionaires in the world (after the USRussiaChina and Germany)(ii) the third largest middle class (after China and the US)and (iii) the single largest concentration of the poor HistoricallyIndias economic structure had the massively wealthy princes at the topwhose incomes were based on inherited wealth and land; a tiny middle class; and a huge mass of the poor The poor were always with usbut billionaire businessmen and a huge middle class were not They constitute a historical novelty for India This historical novelty generates two intertwined results It simultaneously makes India a land of opportunity and a land of corruption Let me explain A 250-300 million strong middle class generates a huge market The emergence of billionaires shows that the market so created can produce enormous wealth Information technology billionaires were predominantly a product of exportsbut most other billionaires have been internally produced The middle classes consumedwhile the entrepreneurs invested and reaped rewards A virtuous cycle of boom seemed to be in place Indeedan economy that grew at 75-8 per cent per annumwith such a large middle classwas also bound to become an ardent object of international attention China has been the greatest business opportunity of recent timesIndia the second biggest Foreign direct investment in India barely touched $100-150 million per annum until 1991; over the last few yearsit climbed to $25-30 billion annually (China attracted over twice as much) Foreign capital thus came to India in ample measurecreating the so-called India story in international circles If the rise of formidable Indian entrepreneurs is a positive side of the growth storycorruption is the negative side Many of Indias billionaires have benefited from corrupt links with the government Entrepreneurship alone did not produce their riches In any sector dependent on landnatural resources and airwavesgovernment control was so virtually complete that if the politicians and bureaucrats wanted bribeshonest business was simply impossible Collusion was the resultbenefiting all three actors politiciansbureaucrats and businessmen Ifaccording to Forbes magazineIndia has 49 listed dollar billionaires todayit probably has several billionaire politicianstoo all unlistedof course India is not the only example of such mutually enhancing collusion Such patterns have been repeatedly witnessed in high-growthbut less developedeconomies The US in the second half of the 19th century the so called Gilded Age is only too well known But Japan during the 1950sSouth Korea and Taiwan after their economic take off in the late 1960sand China today are examples of the same phenomenon Indeedwe have virtually no historical record of a society that rapidly moved from a rural to urbanfrom an agrarian to industrialstage of developmentwithout corruption marking the process of transformation Rapid economic growth is accompanied by entrepreneurial energy as well as corruption The structure of the problem is as follows: if an economy grows at an average of 8-9 per cent per annumsome sectors are likely to grow at 15-20 per cent per annum If government can manipulate a small regulatory or licensing rule in these sectorsthe politicianthe bureaucrat and the businessman can become multimillionaires overnight It is an enormous human temptationafflicting all rapidly growingless developed economies But it is also true that high growth eventually begins to falterif such societies do not clean up their act The US after 1900 and South Korea in the 1990s tackled corruption with vigour Such corruption is not only morally abhorrentleading to popular uproarbut it also begins to hurt economicallyfor it engenders policy paralysisonce popular revulsion is mobilised politically China will have to face this problem before long Indias moment of truth arrived sooner because of a free pressjudiciary and civil society Corruption now threatens to bring down a land of opportunity In recent yearsIndias investment rate had begun to touch 35-36 per cent of GDPhigh by any standards except the Chinese Alarminglythe investment rate is headed below 30 per cent of GDP today Too afraid to be taken to task for wrongdoingbureaucrats have not cleared big investment proposals Tired of a non-cooperative governmentIndias businessmen are finding it easier to invest abroad Consider what all of this does to the third part of Indias current political economy triad: namelythe largest single concentration of the poor in the world That India still has so much povertyand so many malnourished childrenshould be morally deeply troubling But tackling poverty is no longer simply an ethical imperative It is increasingly a political necessity The poor vote more than the middle class and the rich do Their electoral weight now is simply too great to be ignored
