Manmohan has lost all his economist credibility post his speech against demonetisation


The bhakts have ridiculed Manmohan like he knew nothing about economics, he is the same person everyone praised only for one thing, his economic expertise. The same person who is praised for his implementation of LPG in '91.

Was he right or was he forced due the obvious Congress pressure?

Sorry if this comes across as rude, but this post makes very little sense. Nothing about that graph gives us any data to comment on whether Manmohan Singh is a good economist or not.

WHAT! How does this graph prove that he has lost his economist credibility? All that this shows is that the government then marginally less successful than the government now. But that doesn't shed any light on Manmohan Shingh as an economist, probably as a politician, but definitely not as an economist.

These are some hard hitting facts for you all, households, according to Vyas, will bear 12 per cent of the entire cost of demonetisation, largely in loss of wages, during the 50-day period while banks will suffer “overheads and operational costs in terms of recalibrating ATMs”. As per his estimates, banks would bear a cost of Rs 351 billion during this stipulated period
Enterprise sector stands to suffer the most out of this exercise, which is aimed at rooting out the menace of black money, as it is projected to lose Rs 615 billion or 48 per cent of the total transaction cost during this period.
The study also paints a grim picture for the government and the Reserve Bank of India. “The government and RBI are estimated to bear a cost of Rs.168 billion. This is largely because of printing of new currency and transportation of new currency to bank branches, ATMs and post offices,” he said. Though welcomed by many across the country, the government’s decision to demonetise higher currencies has left many in the lurch and utter state of confusion. The study also warned the impact of the rudimentary step could impact the economy over a longer period.

Modi is no doubt a good orator, But as per BJP principle he did not pronounce Nehru who laid the firm foundation for Indian Democracy and economy by allowing free criticism and implementing development in all sector constructing 1000s of dams, power projects, IITs and starting the 10 gems of basic infrastructure of Indian economy. It was he who proposed DR.Ambedkar for Constn Drafting committee. Though he was not in the Cong-party he was included in his cabinet along with Sham Prasad Mukhajee. But B.N. Rao, a great international law expert drafted the constitution for India which DR.Ambedkar worked on it and expanded it. But B.N Rao is ignored though it is in history. It is natural for a BJP leader not even to mention any good work of Nehru or his family

Get your facts right! Nehru never proposed Ambedkar to constitution committee. It was his ability that brought Dr. B.R.Ambedkar to the constitution committee.

Manmohan Singh doesn't have even a fraction of Modi's oratory. He has no way to be forceful and assertive, because of the domestic compulsions of the times. And whatever faithfuls in the media may say, a reading of a speech is like drinking cold tea. Modi, on the other hand, was alternatively forceful and eloquent and witty too on several occasions, which completely obliterated his lack of finesse and polish in the pronunciation. He also spoke as an equal, while MMS spoke as a dependent, even as a supplicant. My point is that there is really no comparison between a Sonia Hand-maid, MMS and a Modi, who is the master of his own foreign policy.

Fact is that India's REAL GDP grew at 8.5% pa, in 10 years of MMS Govt, and in last two years, its grown at close top 5.5% on a comparative basis( the base having been changed last year). Also, why should an Indian be happy when he is worst off today, just because a Pakistani, or Brazilian or Colombian, egyptian is worse off than he is?

By the way after the GDP measure was revised at market prices and new categories were added the last year of congress showed a GDP growth of 6.9% and not 6.1% (year 2014 ending march). After 2 years of BJP the GDP is just about 7.2% . Most of this increase has come after raising indirect taxes and low oil prices. There is no real growth. Come this with service tax raised at 15% this will further bump up GDP . again this is purely nominal growth and not real . All BJP schemes are copied from congress. Once they objected to aadhar and now they love it so much to make it a money bill. We need educated , progressive, secular leaders in the govt and not egoistic , muscular, authoritarian, belligerent , poor knowledge led decision making process leaders. I suggest the author should stop writing and importantly stop playing cheap opportunistic politics
