Re: The Ram Janmbhoomi Verdict: News and Discussion

The SC RJB verdict is a game changer as it establishes the principles of restitution as legal and constitutional provided done lawfully. The left and their international backers apart from basically lying on our civilizational history had propounded the theory that restitution was untenable, illegal...

These things are going to happen slowly but steadily as we are still weak while Hinduphobes or anti-Hindu power centers are still strong. Cannot be done suddenly.

Re: Indian Economy News & Discussion - Nov 27 2017

It is time to renegotiate the FTAs. We now have a $100 billion dollar deficit with these countries. As for traditional Indian companies not being able to compete. Very few are entrepreneurs. Most are traders. As long as they make margin selling an imported product they are all fine. The only hope ar...

Re: Indian Economy News & Discussion - Nov 27 2017

I won't be that pessimistic. Land was an IED planted by the NAC. We have to slowly get out of it. Labor is ongoing. Labor laws have been simplified. My guess is that PSU strength is first going to be reduced to prevent political unions from getting in and then further liberalized. It will take 5-10 ...

Re: Indian Economy News & Discussion - Nov 27 2017

FTAs have not greatly worked because we are not competitive in most manufacturing and even agri. The reasons are several. Cost of money, high corporate tax, land, labor and lack of innovation. Except corporate tax and to a lesser extent cost of money the other issues are still pending. If we sign th...

The question is what are we going to sell to the partner countries. We are not even able to sell Indian made mobile phones to Indians themselves. Signing RCEP at this stage is pre-mature. It is like trying to sell LCA to America.

After a long hard thinking I feel this may not be a good time to sign the RCEP agreement. The reason ASEAN, China and other countries want India to sign are different. Chinese access to US markets has been severely curtailed. It is looking for another big market for its products. ASEAN is an export-...
