Syllabus- GS-2

Synopsis- Theory of Arrow’s paradox and the impact of loss of concentration


  • 所有选举的机制都有缺陷。Mathematician Kenneth Arrow露出了选举的缺陷。
  • 该internet helps the minority voice to instigate a large part of the populace. The recent U.S. presidential election is an example of this.

What is Arrow’s paradox?

定理以Mathematician和Nobel Laureate命名Kenneth Arrow那who demonstrated the theorem in his doctoral thesis in 1950.



  • A set of population has three preferences in the run-up to an election which pits binary choices against each other – A= go to war or B= Don’t go to war.

    • 少数民族– The hawks, those who want to go to war.

  • 中国对尼泊尔的干预是亚洲及以后的其干预战略的一部分。
  • Big nations like China and India always interfere in other nations but ward off possible threats to their own sovereignty. For example, India countered intensely the Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s comments on the farmers’ distress.

On what factors does India’s national sovereignty depend upon?

国家主权一直依赖国家通过其广泛的国家权力来保护它的能力。Big nations tend to intervene more, and the smaller ones find ways to manage this through the politics of balancing against their large neighbours.

  • 第一那印度必须仔细管理印度和邻国的国内政治进程之间的不可避免和积极的互动。
      • 积极和直接干预在国内邻国的政治中必须是一个明智的豁免而不是印度区域外交的统治。
  • 其次,分区的苦涩过去留下孟加拉国,印度和巴基斯坦的国内政治内涵,将他们的关系与独特的主权机构复杂化。
  • 第三,the concept of nationalsovereignty and effectiveness of third-party intervention is limited by circumstance。Outside mediations in the domestic politics of neighbours are rarely successful and yield unplanned penalties.

What are the steps to be taken?

  • 拉贾斯坦邦的案例,这是与工人团体和民间社会组织咨询的健康传统政策制定的初始阶段和to take continuous feedback from the field to carry out periodic midway course corrections serves as a shining example for effective policy making.


  • 该example of the implementation of theMahatma Gandhi National Rural Employment Guarantee Act (MGNREGA)在拉贾斯坦邦可以更好地说明这一点。
  • Though MGNREGA wages are now directly credited from the central government to a worker’s bank account this system faces the支付拒绝问题。该re are numerous reasons for rejection, for example,
      • 该re are instances where block level data entry operators make errors in entering the account orAadhaar.details of workers.

  • Women bear a disproportionately未付国内工作的高负担和care workin India.
  • According to the全印度时间使用调查(2019)data, females bear more than 83% of the burden ofdomestic and care work无论是在泰米尔纳德邦和印度。
  • To end this disparity, recently, Kamal Haasan’s political party,Makkal Needhi Maiam,提出家庭主妇应通过支付在家的支付来获得适当的认可。
  • 该提案产生了好奇心,并重新开放了妇女为国内和护理工作的悬而未决的学术辩论。


Evaluation ofMakkal Needhi Maiamparty’s proposal reveals that though it will be a progressive step, it has the risk of furthering the gender disparity in unpaid work within homes.

  • 据经济学家Diane Elson(2017年),公共政策should aim at closing the hugegender gapin无偿国内和护理工作通过'认识,减少和再分配'Triple-R).
  • Makkal Needhi Maiamparty’s proposal only satisfies the first component of Triple-R, that is ‘recognition’.
  • Since it is women who predominantly carry out unpaid domestic and care activities, often at the expense of their employment prospects and health, the monetary reward is a recognition of their contribution to the well-being of the household and the opportunities forgone by women. The proposal appears progressive, for this reason.

However, the proposal also has the potential to increase women’s burden. This is because

  • 第一ly, paying monetary benefits will endorse the social norm that domestic and care work are ‘women’s work’, for which they are being paid.
  • 其次,向女性支付货币福利使得重新分配“无偿工作的负担不可能。这是因为,为国内和护理工作支付妇女将给予男性的权利,即妇女必然会根据经补偿的无偿活动。
  • Instead of incentivising men to participate more in household work and reducing women’s burden by redistributing the responsibility, the current proposal might do the opposite.
