The 2019 Nobel Prize for Economics winner Prof. Abhijit Banerjee was in conversation with ThePrint’s Editor-in-Chief Shekhar Gupta and Business Standard Chairman T.N. Ninan at ‘Off The Cuff’ in New Delhi. Banerjee, who won the Nobel for his work in poverty alleviation, was critical of some of the decisions of the Narendra Modi government, including the recent corporate tax cuts and stringent inflation targeting that increased rural distress. Banerjee said his years at Jawaharlal Nehru University helped him understand India better and called himself a 'liberal'. On a lighter note, Banerjee said he would cook what is in Bengali called a ‘widow's cuisine’ for PM Modi – a vegetarian meal free of garlic and onion.
