BJP MP Subramanian Swamy took to Twitter to say that he has taught economics to Americans for over 50 years.

He replied to a follower’s tweet asking about his comments on Nobel prize-winning economist Joseph Stiglitz’s statement that India should focus more on growth than being overly obsessed with inflation. The Rajya Sabha MP tweeted:


PT in his tweet refers to ‘Patriotic Tweeple’.

Swamy also retweeted posts by his followers on Stiglitz’s comments that “excessive focus on inflation almost inevitably leads to higher unemployment levels and lower growth”.

He had earlier attacked “Lutyen’s journalists” for not taking note of Stiglitz’s comments as well as the report of the US State Department that had said India’s growth is overstated.
