Institute Professor Ashutosh Varshney comments on India's "moment of truth" in The Indian Express this week, tracing the endemic corruption that has developed alongside the Indian economy. Corruption is not only "morally abhorrent," Varshney writes, but also stands to cripple the country's impressive economic growth. "If the rise of formidable Indian entrepreneurs is a positive side of the growth story, corruption is the negative side. ... Corruption now threatens to bring down a land of opportunity."
