Economy in doldrums: The solutions
August 31, 2013 | Duration: 49 min, 11 sec
While the economy continues to slide with some or the other depressing news coming every day, this week perhaps showed some silver linings among the dark clouds that are hovering around India's economic firmament. The GDP dropped further compared to the last quarter, yet for the first time in many months, the country saw a bonhomie between the ruling Congress and the Opposition that was a very rare sight. Not only UPA and the main Opposition party ended the bitter muck raking but joined hands to pass some crucial bills. But will the passage of the Food and the Land Bill help the economy or will the Food Bill burden the exchequer further and increase the Current Account Deficit? What are the other solutions? To boost manufacturing should there be a rate cut once the rupee stabilises? What about an ingenuous scheme to monetise Gold? Join us for a very special debate with Sunil Alagh, Independent Marketing Consultant, A V Rajwade, a Consultant in Risk Management, Former Chairman of Shell Group of Companies, India, Vikram S Mehta, Activist Anjali Bharadwaj, Economist Rohit Azad and Rajeev Gowda, Lalitha Kumaramangalam from the Congress and BJP.
