Demand and Democracy

(p.84) 4 Demand and Democracy
Market Menagerie
Stanford University Press

This chapter focuses on the pressures of demand for the pharmaceutical industry in India during the 1970s. It explains some rudimentary fiscal politics of demand in the health sector and describes the specific demand-side political movements during this period. It evaluates the impact of Prime Minister Indira Gandhi's brand of populist redistribution on the pharmaceutical sector and argues that the failure of the state to reconcile the politics of labor with broad-based delivery and demand set the stage for the increasing skew toward export demand as technologies advanced.

Keywords:   demand, pharmaceutical industry, fiscal politics, health sector, India, Indira Gandhi, populist redistribution, export demand, politics of labor
