4/ag Here's a solution for "experts on everything" looking for political solutions: Central Govt should #abolish the #APMC Act and the #ECA, along with the 3 new agri laws, and leave every State to make own Agricultural laws. Then they'll be responsible/ accountable to voters!
5/ag Subject to proviso, that States cannot stop inter-state trade in agricultural goods, which framers of the constitution, correctly put under Union Govt's purview. Nor can States force CG to take any action which is responsibility of State, nor obstruct anything in Union list!

Sir, with ref to your very much needed sensitive response, in ordinariness of #ordinarypeople & with commonsense of
#commonman, may we submit as follows:
1.Instead of experimenting with #3FarmActs for 1-2 yrs, why not keep those in abeyance for 2yrs?
2. Ask #40AssnsofFarmers>>
>> to submit their #ProposedDraft keeping following in view:
a. #Reforms inter-alia shifting from existing agriculture pattern in #Punjab #Haryana etc to...
b."Cost + theory" & feasibility of #MSP for all crops
c. Is uniform #FarmActs possible for all #States
3.Likewise #GOI >>
>>needs to appreciate that instead of "experimenting" for
1-2 yrs which if results in #irreversible & #irrevocable DAMAGES will be creating more
#TrustDeficit, it will be better to keeping #3FarmActs in #Abeyance to hv #LevelPlayingField to make needful decisions cordially!>>

RBI credit policy on 4thDec raised GDP forecast for FY21,from minus 9.5% to minus 7.5%;GDP growth will turn +ve in Q3 at 0.1%&0.7% in Q4

Remarkable speed of the turnaround amidst worst pandemic in 102yrs has lots to do with @narendramodi govt's blistering pace of Agri #Reforms💪
CPI in Sep&Oct'20 came in at 7.3%&7.6% and that is precisely why RBI did not lower rates&rightfully so

WPI came at 1.32%&1.48% in Sep&Oct 2020

Supply disruptions&labour shortages,key reasons for high CPI

CPI will fall to 6.8% in Dec&5.8% in Jan2021

Accommodative stance by RBI
Inflation target for 1HFY22 by RBI has been kept@4.6-5.2% range

Core inflation is sticky,feeding into high inflationary expectations but resumption of normality will ease supply bottlenecks&ease #Core

#Accommodative stance leaves window open for rate cuts,albeit not immediately

Problem is the blind polarisation among the upper-crust - who refuse to see anything good in #Modi. Many had forwarded to me the clip of an MP criticising #PMCaresFund hailing her as the new start in parliamentarian. Same people not interested in #NirmalaSitharaman’s rebuttal.
2/n Similarly, not a word of condemnation for the pandemonium caused in #RajyaSabha (despite televised footage) by the opposition but all sympathies with suspended MPs protesting in the laws of Parliament House and lamenting the “death of democracy”. 3/n
3/n Same set of businessmen and industrialists who have been crying hoarse about labour reforms suddenly start talking like Trade Union leaders. Would love to see their reaction if the government withdraws the amendments in #LabourCodes 4/n

Right now DR @APanagariya speaking at @BenCham1833 Leadership Series on the impact of the pandemic #ArvindPanagariya #BengalChamber
2/n Dr #ArvindPanagariya endorses the government's decision not to front-end the "demand stimulus" - because with labour not being there and enterprises shut - Supply Curve being vertical - it wouldn't have worked. #COVID19India #BengalChamber
3/n Dr #ArvindPanagariya thinks it was the right decision to focus first on food security and controlling infection spread. Next, the interventions by RBI on liquidity and credit lines was the logical second step #COVID19India #BengalChamber

#Reforms

This is big reform which will reduce real estate corruption and bring down urban land prices.

swarajyamag.com/news-brief/kar…
After the amendment, regardless of buyer’s annual income from non-agricultural sources, any Indian or a trust, society, company or an educational institution can buy farmland in Karnataka.
According to the current law, any person with annual income above Rs 25 lakh from non-agriculture sources would not be considered as a “farmer” regardless of the family background. Before 2015, the income cap was just Rs 2 lakh.

Does a domestic #fiscal adjustment in #Saudi Arabia have a negative impact on economic growth?

The results based on our @UNESCWA working paper (with @mraissi80 @IMFNews and @niranjan875 @UNESCWA) show that is not necessarily the case: unescwa.org/publications/m… Image
While we would have expected a #fiscal tightening to cause a temporarily fall in economic #growth in #Saudi Arabia, this is not borne by the data as the estimated impact on economic growth is not statistically significant (see Figure 8). 2/3 Image
However, we argue that the sign of the impact would depend upon the size of #fiscal adjustment, the quality of #tax and spending measures adopted, and whether they are complemented with structural #reforms or not. 3/3

🙌🏿Do read @RahulMaganti's reportage on how the #Amaravati project was displacing thousands of farmers from fertile lands, destroying small land holders,creating unemployment for agricultural labourers & forcing desperate migrants into exploitative, informal construction labour.
The master plan for the #Amaravati Project,prepared by a consortium of companies from Singapore,spoke about creating 56.5 lakh jobs by 2050 but the little work created so far were informal,contractual #jobs in construction,unprotected by any labor laws.ruralindiaonline.org/articles/mega-… ImageImage
Furthermore, with the #AndhraPradesh government's takeover of land for Amaravati, many #landless villagers have lost farm work, forcing young men to seek #wages at sand quarries near the Krishna river, and leaving women #unemployed. ruralindiaonline.org/articles/let-t… ImageImage
