Mumbai Three consecutive good monsoons, coupled with better MSPs have helped the agrarian community improve their spending power and consequently consumption Though the equity market has corrected by more than 10 per cent from the all time highs made recently, the country’s business environment is running strong and companies are expected to deliver robust growth driven by consumption-led demand, says Axis Securities in a report suggesting Muhurat picks for Samvat 2075.

Disequilibrium: DISTURBIA 13.10.2018 Financial Chronicle
Mass migration and rampant urbanisation have left urban agglomerates creaking as civic amenities have broken down under the sustained human onslaught. Skilling and vocational development is crucial to arrest this emergent trend line as this peculiar strand of xenophobia against economic migrants takes shape leading to greater social disorder and unrest in India. With as many as 139 million moving about in India, it is leading to employment and economic displacement which comes with an attendant backlash Even as agriculture’s contribution over the years has diminished, the emphasis on services has been overplayed. In many ways, services acquired an altogether new hue, becoming the hot button item in India’s economic march. But for India to provide basic employment and deal with rapid urbanisation and mass migration, it requires jobs for the legionnaires coming off the assembly line.
