Amartya Sen, a nobel Prize–winning economist from India speaks to Time magazine on Obama’s election victory. This is his words to quote –
He won his presidency not as a black American but as a reasoning American who happens to be black.
Attacking Iraq for an imagined link with 9/11 was daft. Having unaffordable health care is not a reasonable way to run a rich society. Destroying the environment is not smart. Spreading the wealth a bit in a deeply unequal society is not as offensive to reason as it appeared to Joe the non certified Plumber.
Sen further writes that Obama needs to reassess his campaign policies on balanced trade.
