Re: Pakistani Economic Stress Watch

You've heard of how countries peg their currency to the US dollar ? TSP pegs their GDP growth rate to Indian reported GDP growth rate. If India reported it grew 8% then they report they grew within X% of that, regardless of what rate they actually grew at.

The GSP story is mostly US domestic politics. India stopped qualifying for it years ago, having exceeded the income threshold. GSP eligible items account for $5 billion out of ~$320 billion in merchandise exports for the year 2018-19, and ~$520 billion in overall exports.
