The Summer Policy Camp has provided me with immense knowledge about
such a wide array of issues and topics, right from feminism, to governments,
and economies. It has inspired me, a non-reader, to buy a book and further
my knowledge regarding some things, and that is something commendable
honestly! It has provided me with SO much clarity, and I am very grateful to
all the facilitators, and all the people who conducted such lovely workshops
for us. Thank you, once again.
If I read about any issue, I now try to know all the stakeholders involved,
understand the case of the stakeholders, the incentives involved and think
about the possible consequences of any action or policy. I can now think
critically and don't make mere assumptions. It has also made me see the ills
of unnecessary bureaucratic and state control and understand the
importance of free enterprise, citizen participation, decentralization,
innovation, and incentives.
