Interview with Dr. Ahilan Kathirgamar on microcredit in Sri Lanka

This is an excellent evidence based and honest interview where Ahilan has not only convincingly explained that this individualised strategy of livelihood generation through micro credits has failed miserably but more importantly he has charted an alternative collective strategy to generate sustainable livelihood to families devastated by war in Sri Lanka. He pointed out that the neoliberal policies followed from the late seventies onwards has created economic inequalities and poverty unheard of before.

Only economic democracy and socialised production as opposed to individualised efforts can bring about sustainable and meaningful economic prosperity, justice and equality. I am convinced of his critique as well as his alternative strategy.

Interviews like this are useful to create economic awareness by dispelling myths propagated by neoliberal pandits.

Can’t recommend this enough!

Love this podcast - the range of interviewees and subjects is vast, and there’s no grandstanding, theoretical, political or otherwise, by the presenter. Good length as well.
