Market Economy and Mass Literacy-Revisiting Innis s Economics of Communication

Market Economy and Mass Literacy Revisiting Innis's Economics of Communication Krishna Kumar From the perspective of the conceptuat frame work developed by Harold A Innis, the pursuit of mass literacy in the context of the so-called 'globalisation' of the Indian economy calls for analysis at a number of levels. The advantages that a literate population offers to the growth of a market economy form a central theme of this paper. At a different level the discussion covers the implications of becoming literate in terms of what is there to read\ In addition to this generalised question, the discussion also looks at the specific problems of survival and development that the illiterates and neotiterates face in the emerging political economy.
