The Wonk Factor: How technology is disrupting inflation

BYShrabonti Bagchi

In the second episode of The Wonk Factor, a series of conversations on technology, policy and disruption between FactorDaily and the Takshashila Institution, Pavan Srinath, Head of Strategy and Programmes at Takshashila, spoke to us about how technology has impacted inflation in India.
Pavan shares insights about the way sectors that have been massively disrupted by technology have behaved (think commuting or ordering food online), and how this contrasts with sectors that are yet to see significant technological impact — where the ways of doing business are more or less the same as they used to be a couple of decades ago.
Let’s look at how the internet economy has influenced the way we spend.
