hmm...random statistics and numbers from dubious sources to back up a handwaving argument about vague concepts. Worthwhile video there.
This is typical of a lot of the MRU Videos: you just cite some random numbers like "1% decrease Tarrifs results in 0.57% decrease in 'poverty'...." - this is a totally meaningless statement and does nothing to support your case.
Actually Tyler notes that these numbers come from the sources at the end of the video. Granted I would also have liked to see more graphs, tables and more detailed discussions about them. However this video is about India and for that it serves well.
As to your criticism, why is it meaningless? Because there is no baseline? Because you believe that the scale is insignificant?
You do understand that 1/2 of a percent in a country of a billion people means 5 million...
