Vol. 4 No. 4 (Jul-Aug) (2023): Indian Public Policy Review
In the August issue of IPPR, the policy brief by Aniket Shevade and Shambhavi Naik provides an overview of AMR, its significance, and the current landscape of policies, national action plans, and funding for AMR research and surveillance within the G20 countries. Murali Neelakantan and Ashish Kulkarni's paper suggest unification of India's disparate healthcare markets (the government monopsony market, institutional, and retail markets), advocating for a more prominent role for the government. The paper by Amit Kumar proposes a framework, in the form of a series of tests, to understand whether trade in a certain commodity between countries can be classified as a critical vulnerability. S Manjesh Roy highlights the functioning of the Indian capital markets regulatory systems through the Covid-19 pandemic and applauds its inherent robustness, resilience, and agility. Finally, Aditya Ramanathan reviews Tim Marshall’s, _The Future of Geography: How Power and Politics in Space Will Change Our World_ and judges it to be "a first-rate primer on astropolitics".
