华盛顿:世界银行(World Bank)前首席经济学家考希克•巴苏(Kaushik Basu)表示,印度经济增长的低迷“非常令人担忧”,突显出这是该国为废币付出的“沉重代价”。印度网友: 

KaushikBasu said from 2003 to 2011, India was growingtypically over 8 per cent per annum. 

考什克·巴苏说,从2003到2011年,印度年增长率通常超过8%。WASHINGTON: The downturn in India's growth is "very worrying", WorldBank's former chief economist Kaushik Basu said, underscoring that this is the"hefty price" the country had to pay for demonetisation.

华盛顿:世界银行(World Bank)前首席经济学家考希克•巴苏(Kaushik Basu)表示,印度经济增长的低迷“非常令人担忧”,突显出这是该国为废币付出的“沉重代价”。

India's GDP growth dropped to a three-year lowof 5.7 per cent during April-June as manufacturing dipped and impact of thedemonetisation lingered on in the third quarter.


"The downturn in growth is very worrying. Iknew it would go below 6 per cent because the demonetisation was a big negativeshock to the economy. But 5.7 per cent growth is lower than I expected,"Basu, the former senior vice president and chief economist of the World Bank,told .

“经济增长的低迷非常令人担忧。我知道这一比例将降至6%以下,因为废币对经济造成了巨大的负面冲击。但是,5.7%的增长率低于我的预期,”世界银行(World Bank)前高级副总裁兼首席经济学家巴苏(Basu)表示。Basu said from 2003 to 2011, India was growingtypically over 8 per cent per annum.


The year of global crisis, 2008, it droppedbriefly to 6.8 per cent, but over 8 per cent growth had become the new norm forIndia.


"Now with oil prices so low, China cedingspace to India, our growth should have been back to well over 8 per cent.Hence, the first quarter growth this year of 5.7 per cent implies 2.3percentage points of growth has been lost due to demonetisation. This is ahefty price," Basu said.


"But the demonetisation mistake andinadequate performance of the export sector means that the overall performancehas been disappointing. These mistakes can be corrected," he said.


The Reserve Bank of India (RBI) recentlyannounced that 99 per cent of the junked Rs 500 and Rs 1,000 notes havereturned to the banking system.

"What is particularly troubling is thelatest announcement which reveals that over 99 per cent of the notesdemonetised have come back. This suggests that the rich people have virtuallyall managed to redeem their money. It is the small traders, the informal sectorand the poor who suffered most," said Basu who currently is C MarksProfessor and Professor of Economics at Cornell University, Ithaca and NewYork.

“尤其令人不安的是,最近的一份声明显示,超过99%的废币已经回来了。这表明,富人实际上已经设法赎回了他们的钱。最受影响的是小商人、非正规部门和穷人,”巴苏说。他目前是康奈尔大学(Cornell University)、伊萨卡(Ithaca)和纽约(New York)的C Marks教授、经济学教授。

Responding to a question on future prognosis,the top Indian economist said there have been two good policy initiatives theadoption of Goods & Services Tax (GST) and the enactment of the newbankruptcy law, and the Indian government does deserve credit for these.
Hence, unless it again makes a mistake like thedemonetisation, the economy should recover in 2018, he observed.


"But I expect two more quarters of poorgrowth. The October to December quarter especially could see a slowdown, sincethe farmers last year suffered a lot when they discovered that ordinarypeople's buying power had been curtailed by the demonetisation and though theyhad produced a lot, they could not sell. We are likely to see a backlash ofthat later this year," Basu said.


"One policy risk is if we try to godigital, doing away with cash, too fast," he cautioned.

"Even rich countries have a long way to go.In a country like India where roughly half the population does not even havebank accounts, a sudden move to digital money makes no sense. It will be ananti-poor policy, since the poor will be disadvantaged most. But barring suchmistakes, we should get back to reasonable growth in 2018," Basu said.


When asked, what should be the policy responseto the sharp growth slowdown India is witnessing, Basu said there are twopolicies that government ought to give special attention to.


"First, it needs to inject more liquidityin the system to compensate people for the drying up of their buying power thathas occurred since November last year. The additional liquidity can boostdemand and provide a Keynesian stimulus that Indian producer's needs," hesaid.


"Second, there has to be policyinitiatives, involving both fiscal and monetary interventions, to boostexports. Manufacturers who are suffering because of ordinary people s damagedbuying power will get much needed relief. In order to promote exports we needto improve the ease of doing business," he said.


"Also, the rupee seems to be artificiallystrong and appreciating in real terms. This is hurting our export capacity.Allowing the exchange rate to settle at market- determined rates will correctthis aberration," Basu said.


Responding to a question on his overallassessment of the performance of Indian government from the point of view ofeconomic performance, Basu said there have been some good policy moves forwhich the government deserves credit.


"But in the long-run, the bigger worry isthe regression in social behavior being witnessed in many parts of the country.If this is not checked more actively, it can cause a setbak not just to thefabric of social life but to long-run economic development," Basu said.LKJ UZM AKJ UZM

Where do these economist get their degreesfrom?You have to recall that DeMo did cause a slow down in trade, but that wassmall trade, as emoney was still there! The big trades where still takingplace....or was it?Just when Trump came in, right at about that time, the H1-B1visa kicked in.This quite naturally, made company analysis back away from"What could be a potential future problem to hiring in Indianmarkets".. So in short, they did not invest India!This deficit of IT tradeand services, and all subsidiaries affiliated with it did impacted on theeconomy. Later on that issues was rectified... But the damage was already done.Company''s had already hired on already invested for the next five years orso.(my guess would be China or another cheap labour market) India is on theright track.We can expect double digit GDP in the future. ( The BRICS loan of1.4Billion US Dollars only came in today. The positive impact will show in afew quarters time as they start releasing the funds and buildinginfrastructure.)

这些经济学家从哪里拿到的学位?你必须记得,废币在贸易中确实造成了一个缓慢的下降,但这是一个很小的贸易,因为电子货币还在!大交易仍在发生……还是吗?就在特朗普来的时候,就在那个时候,h1 - b1 visa开始了。这很自然的,使公司的分析远离“可能成为印度市场中招聘的潜在未来问题”。简而言之,他们没有投资印度!这种IT贸易和服务的赤字,以及与之相关的所有附属公司都对经济产生了影响。后来,问题得到了纠正……但损害已经造成。公司已经在未来5年左右的时间里已经投资了。(我的猜测是中国或另一个廉价劳动力市场)印度正走在正确的道路上。我们可以预期未来的GDP增长是两位数。(金砖国家贷款14亿美元今天才出现。由于他们开始释放资金和建设基础设施,积极的影响将在几个季度内显现。

Statistics shows only 6 to 7% black money wereheld in the form of Cash. And Mr. Modi & Co. banned 86% of cash (by banning500 & 1000 rupee notes). Did any rich people got affected? How much did werecover black money? PM needs to be educated and need lessons on Economy andmarket. We all know he does not like Harvard guys neither he likes NobelLaureate Economists. He should talk with Data/Facts. Simply hating our ownpeople (who are critics on his decision) won''t take our country ahead. Countrylike China will grow in much faster pace. So, Mr. Modi - listen to whatEconomists are saying. Simply visiting USA twice a year won''t help!

统计数据显示,只有6 - 7%的黑钱以现金形式持有。莫迪先生与公司禁止了86%的现金(通过禁止使用500卢比和1000卢比的纸币)。有没有富人受到影响?我们回收了多少黑钱?总理需要接受教育,需要经济和市场方面的课程。我们都知道他不喜欢哈佛男生,他也不喜欢诺贝尔奖得主经济学家。他应该和数据/事实说话。仅仅是憎恨我们的人民(他们是他的决定的批评者)不会让我们的国家领先。像中国这样的国家将以更快的速度增长。那么,莫迪先生——听听经济学家的说法吧。简单地一年访问美国两次不会有帮助!

The issue here is Modi Govt. is run by One manteam!Lots of ideas and very little framework & planning. 1.Swaach Bharat -Zero guidelines to garbage disposal2. Smart cities - wi-fi = smart city3. Makein India - zero advantage to Indian manufacturers. Bug projects awarded toChinese companies.List would go on & on and so will Modi bhakts who tooincidentally are paying artificially jacked up fuel prices.

这里的问题是莫迪政府是一个人的团队!有很多想法,很少有框架和计划。1 . Swaach Bharat –对垃圾处理没有指导方针。2.智能城市- wifi = 小城市3.印度制造——对印度制造商零优势。大项目给予了中国公司。名单将会继续下去,因此顺便付款的莫迪们也会被人为地抬高燃油价格(没看懂……)。

At the backdrop of Modi''s adamancy over thecent percent cashless economy, the opinions of the former Chief Economist Mr.Kaushik Basu are very relevant. The BJP govt. should take the pains to givecognisance to the materialistic views of Mr. Basu for salvaging the presentsituation; so that the coming year 2018 would witness the growth of GDP. Forthe elimination of black-money, the BJP govt. took a wrong step throughdemonetisation. In the process, all the rich-ones have got converted blackmoney to white, throwing the dust in the eyes of the govt. and the income-taxauthorities. At the end of this drama, the poor ones got hit very badly. In theparlance of the economists, Modi made a hurry in banning currency notes forpaving the way for digital economy. This precipitated gesture is going to makea regress in the social culture of our countrymen. Any advancement towardsrigid cashless economy is bound to hit back the BJP govt., as the poor and thedowntrodden cannot continue GANDHIGIRI any more.

在莫迪对无现金经济的坚强态度的背景下,前首席经济学家考希克•巴苏(KaushikBasu)的观点非常相关。印度人民党应该不厌其烦地对巴苏先生的唯物主义观点作出让步,以挽救目前的局势;因此,未来的2018年将见证GDP的增长。为了消除黑钱,印度人民党(BJP govt)在废币的过程中走错了一步。在这一过程中,所有的富人都把黑钱洗白了,把尘土扔进了政府和税务部门。在这部戏剧的结尾,那些可怜的人受到了非常严重的打击。在经济学家的说法中,莫迪匆忙地禁止货币流通,为数字经济铺平了道路。这种轻率的举动将会使我们的国人的社会文化倒退。任何向僵硬的无现金经济的发展都必然会打击印度人民党,因为穷人和受压迫的人再也不能继续甘地主义了。
