Who is Ravi Batra?

Raveendra Nath "Ravi" Batra is an Indian-American economist, author, and professor at Southern Methodist University. Batra is the author of six international bestsellers, two of which appeared on The New York Times Best Seller list, with one reaching #1 in late 1987. His books center around the main thesis that financial capitalism breeds excessive inequality and political corruption which inevitably succumbs to financial crisis and economic depression. In his works, Batra proposes an equitable distribution system known as Progressive Utilization Theory as a means to not only ensure material welfare but also to secure the ability of all to develop a full personality.

Ravi Batra has appeared on CBS, NBC, CNN, ABC, and CNBC and has been profiled in The New York Times, Time, and Newsweek. Since the financial crisis, Batra has been a frequent guest on radio shows and featured in numerous publications.
