Is a negative right a positive idea? Why is a Right to Education problematic, but a Right to Information perfectly alright? In Episode 49 of the Pragati Podcast, Yazad Jal joins hosts Hamsini Hariharan and Pavan Srinath to discuss negative and positive rights. Yazad Jal is a libertarian, and a Fellow for Economic Policy at the Takshashila Institution.

Please excuse the subpar quality of sound in the introductory part of this episode, once Yazad's interview begins the quality is fine.
