Nobel laureate Bangladesh’s Grameen Bank founder Mohammad Yunus said during a conversation with former Congress president Rahul Gandhi that the corona virus has exposed the weaknesses of the world’s social and economic structure in a very ugly way. That is why instead of being troubled by trouble, instead of returning to the old system, a new world order should be created in which there is neither poverty nor unemployment, nor global warming nor capital is limited in the hands of few people.
Yunus talks about Rahul, said – why go back to a world in which very few people had money
Rahul Gandhi spoke to Mohammad Yunus on Friday as part of his series of discussions with celebrities and experts from different fields during the Corona crisis. Yunus said that with only capital-based and global warming, why go back to a world in which very few people have lived. Most people have nothing to do with that money. It is an opportunity to take disaster as an opportunity in which the axis of the economy is not only the city, but the rural economy is also an equal shareholder.
Rahul agreed, saying – India and Bangladesh have vast potential
Rahul agreed with this, saying that there is a bigger opportunity for countries like India and Bangladesh to do this than in the West, because there is still a wide scope in our countries to build infrastructure.
Due to Corona, Yunus said- there is no room for poor and women in the current economic structure
Younus cited the example of migrant laborers in the Corona period, saying that there is no proper place for poor and women in the current economic structure. The current economy does not recognize these people and is called the informal sector.
Yunus said- we can build rural economy as autonomous economy
Which means that we have nothing to do with them, they are not part of the economy. In such a situation, the important question today is why we cannot build a rural sector economy as a parallel and autonomous economy.
Rahul said- the relevance of Mahatma Gandhi’s vision of rural economy is still intact
Rahul said that the relevance of Mahatma Gandhi’s vision of rural economy is still intact. Some methods must be reconsidered, as citizens in rural areas need to be equaled. Rahul said that in Corona, we have got a new imagination, which we need to produce from within rather than from outside.
