Why morality matters in a market economy

aei.org — Please note this event is Indian Standard Time. In much of the world, including India, the free enterprise system has come to be associated with material greed, or wealth creation for its own sake. AEI President Arthur C. Brooks believes that supporters of the free market system need to develop a new way of addressing the big human questions of our time.

Pakistan’s Blasphemy Impasse

online.wsj.com — Even for a nation inured to brutality, last week's murder of a young Christian couple by a violent mob stands out for its sheer horror. About 1,000 angry villagers in Pakistan's Punjab province beat to a pulp 26-year-old Shahzad Masih and his pregnant 24-year-old wife, Shama, before burning them in a brick kiln.

3 reasons India’s Congress party is in trouble

aei.org — After a string of massive electoral defeats, India's left-of-center Congress Party, which has ruled the country for all but 13 years since independence in 1947, is reeling.

BJP at the Crossroads

online.wsj.com — For a political outfit often described as right-of-center, India's ruling Bharatiya Janata Party has long faced an odd dilemma: Even its well-wishers are unsure about the depth of the party's commitment to market-based economic reforms. The BJP is more powerful today than ever before in its 63-year history.

online.wsj.com — If you're looking for a common purpose to bind India's communists, Hindu nationalists and a gaggle of regional and caste-based outfits try this: a program of tire burning, stone pelting and bus torching. On Monday, opposition parties took to the streets nationwide to protest a government decision last month to raise fuel prices.

Malala and the Malaise in Pakistan

online.wsj.com — When the Norwegian Nobel Committee awarded this year's Peace Prize jointly to an Indian and a Pakistani, the symbolism was impossible to miss. The Committee praised 60-year-old Indian activist Kailash Satyarthi for fighting "the grave exploitation of children for commercial gain."

PM Narendra Modi is on right side of a philosophical divide on how to view Indian diaspora

economictimes.indiatimes.com — By Sadanand Dhume Earlier this week, I found myself among some 20,000 Indian-Americans cheering themselves hoarse in Madison Square Garden in what must surely rank among the warmest welcomes ever accorded to aforeign leader on American soil. What makes Narendra Modi so popular among the 3 million strong Indian-American community?

3 takeaways from Modi’s visit to America

aei-ideas.org — Yesterday, Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi wrapped up a five-day visit to New York and Washington, DC. His packed schedule included an address to the United Nations General Assembly, a speech to 19,000 adoring Indian-Americans in Madison Square Garden, an appearance alongside Hugh Jackman at the Global Citizen Festival in Central Park, dinner with President Obama and senior administration officials, a visit to Washington's Martin Luther King Jr.
