Rakesh Wadhwa to Speak at FreedomFest 2018

Rakesh Wadhwa has been invited to speak at FreedomFest 2018 and will be speaking on “Why Some Countries Can Never Get Out of Poverty”. With unique insights into the business environment in countries like Nepal, Sri Lanka, Dubai and India, Mr. Wadhwa has long been a passionate proponent of the free market.

Mr. Wadhwa is the only person to have been nominated six times for the Frederic Bastiat Prize for Journalism, held by the International Policy Network, the UK. In addition, he is a member of the Mont Pelerin Society, a leading global free market organization, which also has members such as Professor Milton Friedman and Dr. Robert J Barro.

Born in 1957, Mr. Wadhwa is a commerce graduate and a chartered accountant. He also holds a bachelor’s degree in law (LLB) from Delhi University. He wrote weekly for the business page of The Himalayan Times, a leading English daily in Nepal, from 2002 to 2008. He also was an Advisor for “The Boss,” Nepal’s leading English business magazine promoting the free market.

Mr. Wadhwa co-authored The Deal Maker, a book much ahead of its times, in which he put forth how a country like India can get rid of the chains of poverty.

“The biggest killer of human beings is not cigarette smoke, automobile accidents, cancer, AIDS or heart attacks… it is poverty,” says Mr. Wadhwa. Having authored a blog that talks about liberty, the Indian economy and the free market for several years now, it will be interested to hear what Mr. Wadhwa has to say at FreedomFest 2018, as well as what his recommendations are for dealing with poverty across the world.
