Over the past decadeand except in 2009 and the last two yearsthe Indian economy has averaged a growth rate of around 8 per cent This was a boom time for many companiesand a handful of politiciansbureaucrats and relatively unknown businessmen amassed an enormous amount of wealth With the benefit of hindsight and the details that the media has publishedit is clear that three factors drove this success: Access to capitalpolitical patronage and a favourable international climate The fastest-growing companies were those that borrowed to the hilt and bought political and bureaucratic largesse to secure landlicences and approvals Most were in miningconstructionreal estateinfrastructure and telecommunications Many were led by first generation entrepreneurs whose companies did not figure on any ranking of companies in the 1990s In factif one were to compare the list of the top 100 companies by market cap in 1990 with a similar list in 2010one would find that only 42 companies made it to both lists The exporters of minerals were also helped by the international market The Western economies had not quite hit the skids and China was roaring on at 10 per cent plus growth It was nothoweverboom time for those that did not have the connections or collateral to access capital and political/bureaucratic support No doubtthey had the aspiration for material advancementbut they faced the Gatsby curve The opportunities for social mobility had constricted The richit appearedhad pulled the ladder of growth that they had used to climb to the top up behind them The Anna Hazare campaign was an expression of protest against this monopolistic stranglehold over the ingredients of economic success The spot-fixing shenanigans of the second-tier IPL cricketers can also be interpreted against this Gatsby-esque economic phenomena Most IPL cricketersI am toldcome from middle classsalaried families They have talent and have trained hard to get to where they are They have had dreams to break into the elite echelons of cricketbut they know that given competition andalaspoliticsthese dreams will most likely not be realised The IPL has been a godsend for them It has given them public exposureand held out the prospects of good money The problem today is that these prospects have dimmed This is because whilst the IPL is a massive money spinnerthe earnings are not evenly distributed The bulk of these earnings go into the hands of the cricketing establishmentthe ownersand the star players The others receive a disproportionately smaller share As a resultthe gap between the highest paid and the rest is wideand continues to widen This diminution of prospects cannot but be hugely disillusioning There is a thin line between dreams and despair The garage owner in The Great Gatsby had set his heart on acquiring a coupe owned by Tom Buchanana rich client Buchanan deliberately kindled this hope When it became clearhoweverthat his dreams would never be fulfilledhe took a gun to Gatsby and then to his own head In the case of IPL cricketersthe line was between the bending of the law and the breaking of it As realisation dawned that the avenues for income growth were getting progressively chokedsome crossed that line Or at least found in it a part justification for crossing it I should make clear that this explanationeven if somewhat validdoes not justify the actnor extenuate the crime Looking aheadI am hopeful that the Gatsby curve will face a discontinuity in India This hope rests on todays changed economic and social context Growth has slowedthe pull of the international market has weakenedthe cost of capital remains high and our gotcha media has brought to public notice the spread and depth of corruption Many of the companies that hit the good times are now in deep financial difficulties Their balance sheets are bloated with debt and they are struggling to keep afloat The master of the good times has seen his pet aviation project go underand it is an open question as to how many others might follow in his wake The stranglehold of big business has weakened Furtherpoliticians and bureaucrats are running nervous This does not mean corruption has endedbut in the face of a vigilante pressan activist judiciary and an emboldened CBICVC and CAGit does mean that people have to be particularly self-assured or foolish to want to extract rent in the manner they extracted it in the past My hope is that other than the scams that have already been completed and have yet to be uncoveredthere are no fresh ones currently in the making A naive hopeno doubtbut one has to merely read the introductory chapter of Daron Acemoglu and James Robinsons bookWhy Nations Fail: The Origins of PowerProsperity and Povertyto know the consequences if this hope is totally off-base The central message of the book is that nations that have had inclusive institutions that allow everyone to participate in the governance of the countryand that ensure fair access to economic opportunityhave succeeded Those that have had extractive institutions that were controlled by a few whose main objective was to monopolise power and to extract as much as they could from the rest of society for their personal benefithave failed India hasin recent yearsexhibited the traits of an extractive nation The question is whether the cathartic revelations of
