Watch: Nandan Nilekani On Technological Disruption And Indian Economy
Swarajya held the second edition of ‘Conversations’ along with the Indic Academy and in association with the Public Policy Club of IIM-Bangalore. The speaker at this session of ‘Conversations’ was former chairman of the UIDAI project—Nandan Nilekani. Having led massive technology-driven projects over a long career, Mr Nilekani spoke on how technological disruption, changes, and growth, will alter and affect the Indian economy and all those participating in it.
These disruptions would come at a time of increasing automation of jobs and when domestic demand would have to drive growth. Mr Nilekani spoke of both the dangers and opportunities, some of them unexpected, that such a scenario offered.
The session was hosted by Swarajya editorial director Mr R Jagannathan ‘Jaggi’.
The first video given below is of Mr Nilekani’s speech, the second is of his interaction with Mr Jagannathan. The last few minutes of the second video includes questions from the audience too.
