Us.china.9.thmb.jpg Tackling trade tensions
Amit Kapoor | 27 Jun, 2019
The trade war between US and China seemed like a distant conflict to most Indians. As the two largest economies in the world dished out threats and counter-threats of tariff hikes, India was largely a disinterested bystander with the only consequential fear of slower global trade.

Infrastructure.Thmb.jpg Lower global rates: An opportunity for the Indian economy
Taponeel Mukherjee | 24 Jun, 2019
The ten-year United States (US) Treasury yield dipped below two per cent recently. The Indian market participants must view this move as an opportunity to improve and strengthen the investment markets in India. Low yields in developed markets and the consequent need for higher investment returns from investors are trends that have been evident over the last decade as quantitative easing by central banks has led to a lower interest rate world.

RBI.9.Thmb.jpg Now for the next steps after rate cut
Taponeel Mukherjee | 08 Jun, 2019
The Reserve Bank of India (RBI) rate cut is expected to provide a boost to the economy. Lower interest rates will help in providing support to the economy but are not the sole elixir that India needs. The focus must not be just on the immediate economic issues but on the broader target of implementing changes that have a long-lasting positive impact on the economy.
