Film premiere: India awakes

We have blogged about the renaissance in India, driven by the institutions of capitalism: markets, free trade, private property, and de-regulation. Now the good people at CATO have a documentary about it.

Documentary Preview and Discussion
Friday, August 14, 2015
12:00 – 1:30PM

Featuring Johan Norberg, Film host and Senior Fellow, Cato Institute. Moderated by Ian Vasquez, Director, Center for Global Liberty and Prosperity, Cato Institute.

For many centuries, only the politically connected and elite prospered in India, while the rest of the population lived in poverty. Since 1991, however, 250 million people have been lifted out of poverty and are finding new ways of unlocking their potential. India Awakes explores an inherited British bureaucracy, which created layers of rules and regulations, and it shows how globalization and economic liberalization are leading to social change. Join us to see a segment of the documentary from the Free to Choose Network. Film host Johan Norberg will discuss how individuals from different parts of India are breaking down the centuries-old caste system through new opportunities, entrepreneurship, and by obtaining property and other legal rights.
