How Chidu is using principle of postponement to meet fiscal deficit target

The principle of postponement is at work big time in case of the government of India because that is the only way it can meet its fiscal deficit target. Of course, that would mean a big headache for the next finance minister and the next government. But then who is bothered about that?

Twin deficits widen but trade gap may soon ease as exports pick up

The current account deficit grew less than expected in the June quarter and is tipped to ease in coming months as a pick-up in exports and lower gold imports improve the trade balance, offering relief to the battered rupee. But the country's fiscal gap widened sharply in the first five months of the financial year, putting pressure on the government to spend less in the run-up to national elections or risk missing its stated aim of cutting the budget deficit. The high current account gap has made it especially vulnerable to a surge in capital flows out of emerging markets in recent months, sending its currency down as much as 20 percent this year. #UPA #fiscal deficit #Current Account Deficit #exports #gold imports #trade gap #Twin deficit
