How Indians view inequality in the country

October 13, 2014 § Leave a comment

According to the latest Pew Research report on opportunity and inequality

  • 70% Indians believe rich-poor gap is a serious problem in the country
  • Think the next generation would be better off (67%) than the current generation
  • See strong opportunities within the country (78%) to improve their life
  • Feel that success is beyond their control (56%)
  • Agree that good education is key (60%) to success in life
  • But also believe that working hard (38%) and being lucky (35%) have almost equal bearing on their chances to succeed in life
  • Blame the government policies (45%) for the growing income divide in the country
  • Seem to think that lower taxes (39%) than higher taxes (31%) will help bridge the gap
  • No wonder then that Indians are free market champions (70%, against emerging market median of 62%)
