    Dr. Jörg Schendel, an independent scholar from Germany specializing on Myanmar, is in Delhi. He has agreed to give us a talk on his area of interest. His original research is on Myanmar’s economic history. In his own words: “In recent research and development studies, there is a tendency to pay more attention to historical structures as a marker for the success of development policies..” Based on that approach, Dr Schendel would look at certain aspects like agrarian structures, textile manufactures, and the salt industry and related them to the economic potential, or otherwise, of today's Myanmar.
