Is Urjit Patel right in choosing growth over inflation ?


Mr Rajan would have been more cautious perhaps to the frustration of the government. Perhaps thats why he is not there at RBI. It boils down to whether the rate cut is even transmitted to create the growth and how equitable is that growth. Else, inflation hits the poor hard and also the real savings rate would get deeper into negative territory leaving millions impoverished further including the most vulnerable like the retired people who live on savings.

How do we account of the Double Inflation accounting, wherever it occurs. Say for example Counting Vehicle Purchase Cost, and Fuel Cost in the Inflation Equation at the same time also counting the Inflation in the Commodities, which is Double Inflation, similar to double Taxation

Inflation in India is because of less supply of essential items and not demand driven of luxurious items. Do u stop eating if interest rate goes up, answer is no. Actually higher interest rates makes creation of supply chain and cold storages unviable and contributes to supply problem. We need not hamper growth by keeping interest rates high, rather improve supply problem.

The cost of inflation falls asymmetrically on the poor and of low interest rates on the retired people and those who live off savings. These people bother less about growth rates of the economy
