Here are two things that stand out in the BJP, Congress and AAP manifestos

if all the three manifestos are put together and all the focal thrust areas are combined then this would be a utopic situation. The economic system would be one that works fast and smartly (BJP) under strict governance standards (AAP) which takes along with it the poor through positive affirmative action (Congress).

BJP, Congress, AAP: Not one manifesto can fight inflation

Quite ironically, if all the three manifestos are put together and all the focal thrust areas are combined then this would be a utopic situation. #Aam Aadmi Party #AAP #BJP #Congress #Election Commission #India #Lok Sabha elections 2014 #Manifesto #Politics

The growth and inflation debate: How have the parties fared across states?

In terms of growth, one could say that the BJP run states have a better probability of delivering and given that each state has its own model for growth with some focusing on industry and others on services or agriculture, there is surely no fixed template.

Green shoots are a pre-elections mirage; reality is we are still stagnating

Do we have a plan for a revival? Not really, and in case we had it would have been stated. We only have wide scale media publicity that things have bottomed out and that green shoots are visible. #Aam Aadmi Party #AAP #BJP #Congress #Election Commission #India #Lok Sabha elections 2014 #Manifesto #Politics

Decoder: Why Rajan hiked policy rates in RBI monetary policy

There seems to be some certainty that the RBI will be going after inflation through policy changes on the assumption that this will finally help to revive growth. If this path is followed policy approach will be easier to discern and the fact that there will be 6 reviews/policies as against 8 will mean less frequent changes. #ConnectTheDots #CPI #Inflation #Policy rate #Raghuram Rajan #RBI #Reserve Bank of India #Urjit Patel #WPI

2005 currency cutoff: RBI move may check black money but it’s panic time

A period of three month is too short a time and will create long queues and confusion as the masses flock to banks spending a horrendous amount of man hours for this process #Banks #Black money #currency cutoff #fake notes #RBI #Rupee

Aam Aadmi Party: Is there an economic story in the plot?

AAP should seriously reconsider their economic approach and probably induct the right people to formulate policies on various issues rather than have policies based on sentiment. Every such disastrous step has the power to come back to haunt the present or, probably worse, the future governments. #AAP #Arvind Kejriwal #Economic policies #Lok Sabha #retail FDI #TheLongView

Inflation takes it all: Why 2013 was a disappointing year for savers

With inflation remaining high at over 10% for most of the year - never mind that we were told that inflation is coming under control and will come down in January- the purchasing power has been eroded considerably. #Bank rate #ConnectTheDots #CPI #Economy #food inflation #GDP #Inflation #Raghuram Rajan #RBI #Savings #WPI
