Business as unusual in India – Sitaram Yechury – Hindustan Times

Our international positioning, say on Iran, Syria or the downgrading of support to the Palestinian struggle etc, is increasingly becoming one of toeing the US line, thus, making our foreign policy subservient to US global strategic interests.

In a sense such a change was inevitable given the unabashed embrace of neo-liberalism and its trajectory of economic reforms. Such a trajectory predominantly rests on appeasement of international finance capital hoping to attract larger foreign capital inflows to accelerate our domestic economic growth rate.
