Abstract: With India in lockdown and economic activity virtually brought to a standstill, what will the effect of such radical state interventions be on food prices? The authors explain why we shouldn’t look to blame the shopkeeper, what policy options are available to the government in the face of rising food prices, and the best way forward for a large and mostly poor country like India.
