How to get India’s macroeconomic, microeconomic policies right - Nirvikar Singh, Financial Express
In India, as elsewhere, crafting good macroeconomic policy is difficult. Measurement of aggregates such as output and inflation is fraught with challenges, and it is hard to build reliable models of the entire economy. A few years ago, there was a somewhat heated debate among prominent economists about the merits of GDP growth as a prime objective of economic policy in India, with claims made for promoting “inclusive” growth and even non-GDP measures of well-being such as health and education outcomes.
How about a gold small savings scheme? - Aarati Krishnan, Business Line
Has demonetisation prompted the Indian saver to abandon traditional options such as gold and make a beeline for financial assets? Financial firms and stock market investors certainly seem to think so.

Online transactions on the rise, but cash is still king - Business Standard
Almost a year down the line, is Prime Minister Narendra Modi's dream of making India a cash-less or less-cash country becoming a reality? Industry stakeholders feel that though the note-ban drive by the government gave the necessary impetus to citizens to start adopting online payment platforms, a lot needs to be done by both the government and the industry to make it a success.
Economic growth: an alternative view - L Venkatachalam, Hindu
India’s decelerating GDP growth rate in the past five quarters has generated panic. A drop in GDP growth rate from 7.4% in January-March 2016 to 5.7% in April-June 2017 is equivalent to ?2.59 trillion. Most commentators argue that a smaller rate of GDP growth will have a negative impact on the growth of employment, income and livelihood opportunities.
What is supporting India’s exports; the answer may well be blinding - Tejinder Narang, Financial Express
The general perception is that gold and diamond imports are guzzlers of precious foreign exchange. This impression is totally misplaced. If we analyse the import and export of these items over the last six years, a trend emerges that there is significant “value addition” when gold as jewellery is exported and rough diamonds are shipped out as cut and polished ones (data is collated from the Gem & Jewellery Export Promotion Council, or GJEPC, sponsored by the ministry of commerce).
