The world in 2020 is facing an unprecedented health crisis and a daunting economic crisis. India has a festering banking crisis that makes dealing with the economic fallout of COVID-19 all the more difficult.

Columnist, emerging markets investor and polymath Narayan Ramachandran talks to host Pavan Srinath and unpacks the twin economic crises and draws useful historical parallels. Narayan argues for an Indian Marshall Plan, extensive reforms, broad approaches, and charts a path ahead for India. Narayan writes a fortnightly column in Mint called A Visible Hand.
