The way some economists and international development institutions see the marketplace, they end up arguing that creating openness and highly competitive situations is good for growth.

In this respect, Kohli associates himself with statism, a belief that a government should control the economy either through state-owned enterprises or economic planning, without any interference of non-state actors.
