Indian-American economist Abhijit Banerjee says he wouldn't have been able to win a Nobel Prize if he were based in his country of origin. It isn't that there's no good talent in India, but a certain kind of system is needed, he said today at a literature festival. Born in Mumbai, Abhijit Banerjee was educated at the University of Calcutta and Jawaharlal Nehru University.
