Why Some Indians Don’t Like New IMF Chief Economist Gita Gopinath

Even as Indians celebrated the appointment of Gita Gopinath as the International Monetary Fund's chief economist -- the first woman to hold the post -- back in her home state of Kerala, she's loathed for her free market policies.

    This news is not correct... Currently she is the economic advisor to the kerala Cheif minister and going to resign this week prior to take charge at IMF.

    RR did not resign - he completed his term and left for academia in the US. Brut needs to stop doing yellow journalism.

    IMF is not Modi-brained enough to think getting to study or teach at Harvard, happens without "hard work". The difference though is in intelligence. What a waste of an eminent economist's time to tell this country that it would be a futile self inflicted disaster to overnight suck out 86% of the economy's cash to catch just 5% of undeclared wealth and adding an even 2X higher value note (₹1,000 -> ₹2,000).

    What you want to say? No one should criticize anyone? Criticism is good, it helps for better solution.

    Do Indians know that the neo-liberal tag is actually not a bad thing?

    She's still the advisor to the CM of Kerala. See the link below. It is quite natural in a democratic society to have difference of opinion and express such opinions. She is not a God of semitic religion to be above criticism or any criticism to become a blasphemy. http://www.keralacm.gov.in/advisors-chief-minister-kerala-pinarayi-vijayan/

    Kerala shunned her for not following Marxist principles??? How many so called Marxist in the country follow Marx or understand his philosophy? Why should an economic advisor fall in line with Marxist principles? Our Marxist leaders(only by brand name) have always been destructive to their own good.

    The answer to the last question on the video is a yes.. Because of vested interest of politicians and people in power, many youngsters still prefer to leave the country as we still have reservations in all aspects of life... ! At least abroad they could work hard and build a respectable life without being criticized for cast, creed or gender....!! However, Trump is changing this in the US, by driving out non Americans, so don't know if it is trying to become like India..;)

    When you see Brut India's sponsored Post, you must understand it is meant to be for spreading hate in society between two religion, two caste or two ideologies.. Will never find anything which is positive here..
