Is GDP a true indicator of growth or does it reflect development?

Suhani Singh had posted

IMO all these national statistics figures like GDPs etc. are not very helpful in the age of globalisation, growing populations and diminishing resources. The less economi


Nitin S. Observe think and then speak

GDP is an inappropriate measure. It was never intended to be other than an index of economic activity and is an inappropriate target for government policy. Accidents, the clear-up costs of pollution, etc also add to the GDP figure, when in reality, they are a negative. People who commute or drive to work are better for the GDP than those who work at home. Growing one's own vegetables doesn't count. It is crazy to make the growth of such a figure into a policy objective, but everyone is doing it.I would suggest, very tentatively, that aggregate land value could be a useful measure of economic well-being and a target worth pursuing. It puts a positive value on a view of a natural landscape, a negative value on pollution and measures the value of thing that give rise to external benefits, for example, railways.

What should be done to curtail China's aggressive expansion?

China has occupied Aksai Chin, Tibet, South China sea, Taiwan and many more, claims Arunachal Pradesh and what not. Being a super power what should be done to make sure China looses its aggressiveness?

Buddhist monks are mercilessly killing Muslims in Myanmar, is Buddhism a religion of peace?

Myanmar's Buddhist Terrorism Problem | Al Jazeera America


Of all the moral precepts instilled in Buddhist monks the promise not to kill comes first, and the principle of non-violence is arguably more central to Buddhism than any other major religion. So why have monks been using hate speech against Muslims and joining mobs that have left dozens dead?

Demonetisations phycological effect is finally wearing off and the reality is coming forward. What should the Govt. do to sustain the emotional and financial hit?

Demonetization shock wont spread over two months you are ignoring some of the positive variables here. The drop in interest rates creates once-in-lifetime opportunity for home buyer and is definitely going to boost demand in housing sector. Primary housing sector cannot have any adverse effect of cash constrains. So far as FMCG retail, automobile, e-commerce etc. are concerned, the slowdown is purely temporary and economy is likely to bounce back during next quarter. These dooms-day predictions only have the effect of creating panic among public. The basic economic figures are robust enough to tide over any temporary choking of commercial activity. This was arguably the best time for such an initiative like demonetization. For business any excuse is good enough for demand of tax incentives.

This is only the beginning of football's sex abuse scandal but are we adult enough to confront our hideous past?

Nitin S. Observe think and then speak

If this was happening in football you can be fairly certain that other sports were/are also affected. Everything involving children and adults. The tragedy is that more and more adults who want to put something back into communities are put off because of the rotten apples. Nobody in his right mind mind would volunteer to be a scout master or football coach.

Will Tamil Nadu have a temple for Amma now? Who defines if one can have a temple or not?


I dont intend to be rude and offensive here but why is it that a lot of people in South India treat Actors as Gods? Once an actor you definitely make it to politics (if you want to), not only this you can have a temple for yourself as well !

Other who have a temple are: Actor Rajnikanth, Actress Kushboo, Actress Namitha, Actress Pooja Umashankar , Actor and CM TN Maruthur Gopalan Ramachandran and now probably Amma too

Is 35 the new 25? Or was it always this way

I'm 26, will be 27 this October and there are barely any choices for a career nowadays. I studied for IAS, not that I really wanted to but I want job security and a career. Any other job you apply for has a billion other people applying for it. The truth is, the future is grim. Everything is getting worse. Its everyone for themsleves these days, no wonder so many people turn to crime etc. I used to be a reallyopitmistic guy, but I'm slowly become a pessimist. These so called experts havnt a clue, sitting in their nice offices on a a nice wage on planet zeebus. Totally out of touch with reality.

The practicality of something similar to Minority Report

I saw minority report yesterday itself and since then i have been thinking, can it be possible for some algorithms to predict if a crime is going to happen. We do have immense data in places like US/ EU and this experiment can actually take place there to see its possibility, however does it rule out the possibility of giving anyone a chance to be better or does it help us really predict the future and help us reduce crimes.

Private investment have not picked up in India, what can be done to improve on this?

Indian economy that had been suffering under the twin impact of global downturn and successive failure of monsoons, is expected to show consumption led growth. This comes in the backdrop of a robust monsoon and the implementation of seventh pay commission. In order to improve on the private investments we should focus on Improving the ease of doing business to increase investor confidence. This includes cutting down on red-tapism, corruption and granting quicker clearances. Lowering the interest rates to incentivise the corporates which are suffering from stressed balance sheets. capital infusion into banks, specially PSBs that are facing high number of NPAs.

Can't we just give it to modi govt for such a bold move without taking help of any other nation, and not keep crying on faulty implementation.

To be very honest i had the same thing on my mind as well. I have been thinking if there was a better solution, maybe, maybe not but the critics (who are less btw) keep on criticising based on either lack of knowledge or trying to fool everyone with ill interpretation of whats going around.

Someone did it guys, the money holders are panicking and i am sure this is just the start, there will be more such moves and there has to be an end to all of this

From Nitish Kumar offering Free wifi all colleges in Bihar to Capt. Amarinder Singh offering 50 lakh phones if he wins, to startups like uber / amazon who offer free goodies if you register. Is "Free" all what we care about? Is "Free" the best marketing campaign?
