Poverty of ideas - Arvind Panagariya, Economic Times
Evidence that poverty has declined since India began to liberalise in the 1980s, that the acceleration in growth to 8-9% range since the mid-2000s has resulted in accelerated poverty reduction and that these trends hold for each broad social group rather than just the aggregate population is as irrefutable as it gets in social sciences. In the accompanying graphic, taken from a recent study by Megha Mukim and the author...

Akhilesh takes on dad, uncle - Biswajeet, Pioneer
The warmth among members of Samajwadi Party’s first family evaporated in the winter chill as Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav on Thursday released his own list of 235 candidates for the UP Assembly election after his father and SP patriarch Mulayam Singh Yadav denied tickets to his loyalists, including three Ministers, in the first list of 325 candidates released on Wednesday. Though the 235 candidates list of Akhilesh was not issued officially and it was put in the public domain through social media...

Modi is attacking the currency of corruption - MJ Akbar, Times of India
The rationale for the most transformative event of 2016 is uncomplicated. All cash transactions are not corrupt. But every corrupt transaction is in cash. High denomination notes are the currency of corruption. If you want to challenge corruption root and branch you cannot merely trim the branches periodically to appease public opinion. You have to attack the curse at the roots. Corruption is the mechanism through which a section of our elite has poisoned the credibility of our nation’s political and economic edifice.

Did Rahul Gandhi study UPA figures before attacking Narendra Modi govt? - Debobrat Ghose, FirstPost
Ever since Prime Minister Narendra Modi announced the demonetisation of Rs 500 and Rs 1,000 notes on 8 November, the quoting of financial figures and jargon has become common to the extent that people at chowrahas (public squares) too have begun to talk like bankers. Most of it is being used to target the tardy implementation of the move. The latest figure to use these figures against Modi is the Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi...

Towards a cleaner society - Rahul Kansal, Times of India
Over the past weeks one has witnessed scathing criticism of Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s demonetisation scheme in large sections of media. Much of the criticism rightly blasts the inept quality of implementation; as well as the (terribly under-estimated, in all likelihood) blow to economic activity, in the short term. In the process, critics have also tended to write off any potential long term benefits of the scheme. “Cash is barely 6% of unaccounted assets, what real difference will it make?...

Life after Amma - Kumar Chellappan, Pioneer
The Godfather, based on a novel by Mario Puzo and directed by Francis Ford Coppola, was a landmark film in Hollywood’s history. For those not familiar with The Godfather, it is about turf wars between the migrant Italian Mafia families in the US that made New York their base. A scene in the movie shows the funeral of Vito Corleone, the head of the Corleone family. The scene is set in the cemetery where the Corleone family members gather for the burial of the don.

A good beginning to end war against black money - Joginder Singh, Pioneer
The present Government’s demonetisation drive is a good start to end the menace of black money. But more needs to be done, like confiscation of currency and have an adminisrtrative set up as an appellate authority. Black money refers to the funds earned on the black market, on which income and other taxes have not been paid; the total amount of black money deposited in foreign banks by Indians is unknown. One of the common way to convert black money to white is by showing income in cash.

Don of an anxious era - Chidanand Rajghatta, Times of India
He won. Bigly. Defying polls and punditry, and riding on the anger and resentment of working class Americans who felt marginalized by coastal elites, globalisers, and immigrants, Republican nominee Donald Trump powered his way to become the country's 45th President. The New York billionaire, a political outsider who presented himself as a disrupter with immediate solutions to the country's problems during a bitter, year-long campaign, comfortably defeated Democrat Hillary Clinton...

Modi's limited Pakistan policy at BRICS - Manoj Joshi, Mail Today
The Modi government’s recent policy towards Pakistan - which has included a combination of surgical strikes, naming and shaming Islamabad, and using international events to isolate and sanction it - has been described as a "game changer". Certainly the government has expended a vast deal of diplomatic capital in trying to get Pakistan to modify its behavior and principally end the sanctuary and support it offers to a slew of anti-India and anti-Afghanistan jihadis.
