2 thoughts on “The Economist & Stereotypes”

  1. Hi Om, I’m also a long-time fan and reader (and one-time contributor to) The Economist. They have, over time, used provocative language and/or imagery, but I generally feel it’s less about imperialistic undertones and more “macho” (male over female). That said, to me it seems more motivated by a desire to provoke readers and make them think/react than to be balanced. My first thought after seeing the image above is when one of the eastern states lost their car plant to Gujarat.

  2. I appreciate their writing – and more often the writing of those who have moved on. They not only retain the bias of failed colonialism; but, loyalty to the class that profited from colonialism – while it lasted.
