How RBI dealt with the crisis amid tensions with FinMin - Rajrishi Singhal & Gopika Gopakumar, Mint
They say marriages are made in heaven but the relationship between a finance minister and the country’s central bank governor is usually characterised by fire and brimstone. In India, the periods preceding and following the Lehman Brothers collapse in September 2008 highlighted the tension writ into the association and its infuriatingly fraught nature.

GDP Report – misreading the facts - Surjit S Bhalla, Indian Express
About three-and-a-half years ago, I commented on the just-released new GDP series (‘The new GDP is for real’, IE, April 18, 2015).
