Promote migration

Apoorva from the American Enterprise Institute, Washington DC. Writes:

  • Kerala has the fourth highest level of private health expenditures in the country - more than 86 per cent of total per capita healthcare spending in Kerala is conducted in private institutions. Consider also the massive impact of migration on the state. Yes, Kerala has outpaced Gujarat in economic growth over the last several years, but this has been driven completely by remittances, which made up more than 20 per cent of the state's income in 2007. Indeed, Keralites simply voted with their feet, travelling abroad for the economic opportunity they lacked at home.
