Amartya being Amartya

Sen on how to compare India and China: not based on income levels or growth, but rather based on health and other objective measures of well-being. I was somewhat stunned by Bangladesh’s outperformance on those metrics, but that’s kind of par for the course with Sen’s writing – he’s great at finding this sort of story.
