B. Sc. in Economics: Serving India’s need for more Economists


The Indian economy may be progressing towards normality after being battered by the COVID-19 pandemic. Still, the job market is witnessing tightness, mainly in contract-based employment sectors.

According to a report by the Indian Express, right after being whacked by the second wave of the pandemic, India's Gross Domestic Product (GDP) contracted by 7.3 per cent. The report claims it was the worst shrink ever witnessed since the finance ministry started collecting GDP data in 1996. There were many reasons for these economic pitfalls. Approximately 10 million migrant workers lost their jobs during the lockdown and returned to their hometowns.

Dazed and confused

Since then, there has been chaos, confusion and abruptness. While we become normal to the ‘new normal, surpassing this new phase where innumerable things are virtual is difficult for many. Scores of Indians are still struggling to get used to it and find a decent source of employment in the virtual world.   

While all of this is happening, the same report also claims that the country hasn’t been able to manage a proper database system to trace out information regarding the number of job losses in India, especially in the case of migrant workers. Now, why did that happen? Do we not have enough experts and economists to trace that? Where are we lacking?

What India really needs

In the last two years, India has made concerted efforts to revamp the economy and bring businesses back to the same track. However, it does need economic reformers and experts to set the seal on feasible and comprehensive growth. Imagine what changes one educated, informed, and intelligent person can make in a country of 1.4 billion people? So, start with investing in economic courses, maybe?

The future can be green

Did you know the country lost $2.9 trillion during the COVID-induced lockdown? It largely survived on a slew of essential services and activities. But, as shops, stores, food outlets, workrooms, traveling services and business firms were closed, the country-wide shutdown brought taters to the economy. And the worst affliction was on the informal sectors. We still do not have data on how many lost jobs, have jobs or are trying to seek jobs. Maybe we can fix this fiasco with the correct data, resources and insights. If economics is your thing and you want to achieve something in the subject, maybe start with helping your country?

The future can be green if you want…
