                          SMEs account for being the largest business sector in every economy across the world. Thus, subsidies and growth stimulation packages for this sector are a part of every Government's national development plan. Not only do they dominate in terms of numbers, but, are also the key drivers of economic expansion and employment.

                          South Asia in India's focus
                          D.C. PATHAK | 20 Jul, 2021
                          Developments in Afghanistan marking a steady rise of Taliban's hold on that country -- this resulted in the evacuation of staff from the Indian Consulate at Kandahar -- confirms many readings on how the Pak-Afghan belt would shape up in the aftermath of the withdrawal of American troops from the messy theatre, the scene of an unending 'war on terror' launched by the US in Afghanistan way back in the wake of 9/11.

                          Outliers: A Macro and Bond Update
                          Suyash Choudhary | 15 Jul, 2021
                          A persistent theme of Indias bond curve is its very attractive steepness even up to mid-duration points. This has allowed for substantial carry plus roll down benefits from a portfolio standpoint. The assumption in this sort of a strategy is that, while bond yields can rise, they should do so relatively modestly and in an orderly fashion for the excess carry and the benefit of roll down to manifest itself.

                          Saving the small contractor
                          Vikash Khandelwal, CEO, Eqaro Surety Private Limited | 02 Jul, 2021
                          The COVID-19 pandemic has had a debilitating impact on the Indian economy. The 2nd wave which was far more lethal and ravaging in its impact than the first one, has pushed us into the midst of heightened levels of economic uncertainty. The viciousness of the wave necessitated the re-imposing of curbs on movement of goods, interstate travel, attendance at offices, functioning of malls, market places etc. Travellers from India were also barred from most countries. The focus shifted to survival at any cost and making it to the other side of the pandemic, ALIVE.

                          China's biggest challenge: Surviving autocratic Xi
                          NC Bipindra | 29 Jun, 2021
                          Mao Zedong, it is said, was furious over the slights he had received at the Eighth Party Congress (1956 and 1958) -- the call for collective leadership, the assertions that China would never have a cult of personality, the removal of Mao's thought as the guiding principle for the nation, and the criticisms of adventurism.

                          Imported tightening is a possible risk to the Reserve Bank of Indias (RBI) current accommodative monetary policy stance, but it is likely mitigated now.
