News coming from Chinese media in the last two months display a certain nervousness. Why is that? Something strange is happening within China and we do not know what it is.

Usually Chinese dont bother about what India is or is not doing.

This is fun.

Going by Parthasarathy's judgment everybody should be flaunting a badge of honor highlighting all the academic qualifications before facing a crowd. But if the heckeler doesn't wear one, he is expected to be less accomplished. The problem is -a large number of Indians living and working overseas have degrees and diplomas acquired from branded international  instituions, but there is no way to know if they are more or less accomplished.

I personally do not have as much respect for Indian journalists and media personalities watching or reading them ( thanks to internet and satellite TV ). There is strong partisan bias. Often opinions are not reflective of any painstaking research or analysis. Nobody scoffs at the paid news. Raadia tapes transcripts clearly showed how the ethical standards of well-known Indian journalists sank to the gutter. 

That does not mean I justify heckling a senior journalist - only the accomplishment issue I  take with a pinch of salt.

If we have a 20 - 30 per cent cost disadvantage, Indian manufacturing will die out. For it to reach 25% of GDP, every item of cost that makes us globally uncompetitive will have to be analysed and redressed. Economics, not patriotism, is involved.

Many Indian companies made acquisitions abroad in the period leading up to 2008, financed by debt, and have come to regret that bout of exuberance. Organic growth, like planting an orchard, takes time but yields sweeter fruit.

Dr. Rajan is a safe pair of hands. The fact that 6% retail inflation by January 2016 is not a done deal must silence those clamouring for rate cuts.

Even considering you are a right winger, you too should acknowledge that the boy who heckled Rajdeep should have shown some respect to, not only a senior person, but someone much more accomplished in life, than this right winger can ever hope to be, and not shouted at him, to provoke the veteran journalist.

Shameful behaviour from the right winger, and Rajdeep is no saint to not be provoked!

It is bad. Loss of foreign exchange is the important point. India being a money creator fund education for more students in India.It can also build more universities and expand education for more students. Over a longer time span, India should offer free university education for all.

"WE need to break the back of inflation"

We need to spend more FISCAL DEFICIT and expand the economy. Not bank money which balances to zero at any given time because loans and deposits are equal but FREE FISCAL DEFICITS, govt created money.

How much FISCAL DEFICIT? A generous 25% of GDP.

It is easy to predict GDP. The equationof balance is

FISCAL DEFICIT - TRADE DEFICIT = NET PRIVATE SAVINGS and the GDP is proportional to NET PRIVATE SAVINGS.

If the trade deficit is zero, The GDP is proportional to govt deficit X.  X can be 6.5%. If Trade deficit increases to 2%, GDP will be 4.5%, and if trade deficit is 4%, GDP will be 2.5% etc. It depends on the expected trade deficit. If the trade deficit is 6.5%, GDP will go to zero.

What is the expected (FISCAL DEFICIT - TRADE DEFICIT )?

Harun sahib 

Madam Kavita had to fight for the Pension of Mr Karkare.

The Pension for those who are kiled in fighting Terrorists and Criminals is much higher than the Normal Pension.

I am in no position to confirm she was ultimately paid the correct Pensiona admissible .

Do I need to point out the amount of loot done by the politiicans while the brave ones never got their dues.

And what about rascals like Antuley who say Karkare was killed by the Saffrons not by the LeT Paki  killers.

Kavita till end used to fight these loonies.

Many Politiicans say so . I AM ALSO EXTREMELY DISTRESSED TO SAY THAT LARGE NUMBER OF INDIAN MUSLIMS BELIEVE THE ANTULEY'S THEORY.

" MMS got a much bigger dinner party in the White House. "

Is this reason why Modi just sipped water? To protest that a bigger dinner party was not thrown for him and his entourage?

Modi's detractors will draw all sorts of inferences to console themselves. The people of India are far smarter than the pseudosecular rabble who left no stone unturned in their quest to ensure that Modi did not become the PM.

After a few years under Modi, India will change for ever and the Nehru-Gandhi dynasty will be wiped off the political landscape.

There is no need to adjust rates frequently. To reduce inflation it is necessary to put MORE created money into the economy to allow it to expand. Economic expansion kills inflation. Example: After 2008 when the big banks were about to fail 2 GDP of money was created and put into the US economy/ USA has near zero inflation.

The created money is FISCAL DEFICIT. It is called that not because it is anybody's deficit but it was called that during the gold standard dead since 1971.

More money means more inflation ONLY when the economy is operating full bore. In an economy with a lot of slack and lots of unemployment MORE FREE money produces less inflation after an adjustment time.
