The Billionaire Raj with James Crabtree
Today Sandip speaks to journalist, author and professor James Crabtree about his recent book The Billionaire Raj. India’s economy might be growing rapidly but this progress leaves many of its citizens behind, with only 1% of the population holding 60% of the wealth. James was the Mumbai bureau chief for the Financial Times and during his tenure made the acquaintance of several of India’s billionaires, tycoons and power brokers, leading him to write a book about his personal journey where he explores the struggle between equality and privilege playing out in India today. James and Sandip talk about the book, the personalities and India’s problem with corruption and crony capitalism.
