Jean Drèze, development economist, activist, and professor at Ranchi University (India) has come out with a book titled “Sense and Solidarity. Jholawala economics for everyone.” Everyone should read it.
This collection of essays and articles from research and activism during the last decades provides a perceptive and rigorous look into India´s economic and social development, child health, elementary education and gender (in)equality. Drèze, the co-author of several books with Nobel laureate Amartya Sen, explains that social development should be seen as “the endeavour to create a good society.”
