A search for new ways to talk about race in Aotearoa New Zealand brought together this powerful group of scholars, writers, and activists. For these authors, attempts to confront racism and racial violence often stall against a failure to see how power works through race, across our modern social worlds. The result is a country where racism is all too often left unnamed and unchecked, voices are erased, the colonial past ignored and silence passes for understanding. By 'bringing what is unspoken into focus', Towards a Grammar of Race in Aotearoa New Zealand (Bridget Williams Books, 2022) seeks to articulate and confront ideas of race in Aotearoa New Zealand – an exploration that includes racial capitalism, colonialism, white supremacy, and anti-Blackness. A recurring theme across the book is the inescapable entanglement of local and global manifestations of race. Each of the contributors brings their own experiences and insights to the complexities of life in a racialised society, and together their words make an important contribution to our shared and future lives on these shores. Contributors to this book: Pounamu Jade Aikman, Faisal Al-Asaad, Mahdis Azarmandi, Simon Barber, Garrick Cooper, Morgan Godfery, Kassie Hartendorp, Guled Mire, Tze Ming Mok, Adele Norris, Nathan Rew, Vera Seyra, Beth Teklezgi, Selome Teklezgi and Patrick Thomsen. Arcia Tecun (a.k.a. Daniel Hernandez) is a storyteller (film maker, podcaster) and Pouako (Lecturer) at Waipapa Taumata Rau (University of Auckland) in ethnomusicology and social-cultural anthropology. His research and teaching interests include Indigeneity, race, class, gender, religion, food, and popular culture/music in Oceania and the Americas. Lana Lopesi is an author, art critic, editor and multidisciplinary researcher based in Tāmaki Makaurau. In September, she became an Assistant Professor Pacific Islander Studies in the department of Indigenous, Race and Ethnic Studies at the University of Oregon. Anisha Sankar is a Chennai-born, Te Awakairangi-raised South Indian Tamil living in Pōneke. She is currently working on her PhD, which studies the contradictions of colonial capitalism. Key Point About the Book: • Arrives at a time of burgeoning questions around race, identity, and power • Provides readers with new ways of thinking and talking about race in Aotearoa New Zealand • Addresses New Zealand's local connections to global and international discussions of race Ed Amon has a Master of Indigenous Studies from the University of Auckland, New Zealand.

Welcome to Stories from The Subverse, where we uncover hidden and marginalized stories through a more personal storytelling lens. In our first story we listen to Yuvan Aves—naturalist, educator, and writer who is certain to transport you, at least briefly, to Chennai's beaches. Painting a vivid portrait of what a meaningful education should be, Aves is convincing in his point of view of why it's crucial for a child's learning to be rooted in real-world engagement and lived experiences.  Having been a nature educator for a decade now, Yuvan speaks eloquently about the need to design learning in such a way that it allows children to connect to their natural environment, and make their own discoveries. He reminds us of how important it is for schools to tap into children's innate sense of curiosity, and keen sense of observation, which the dominant classroom in India has unfortunately failed to do. Acknowledging his own past traumas, Aves makes a strong case for nature's ability to heal, and instill in us a deeper sense of empathy.  At the heart of education should be ecological and human values, states Aves, who was awarded the Green Teacher Award (2021) by Sanctuary Nature Foundation. Join him on his shore walk to get a taste of his school of thinking, and listen to children's gleeful reactions as they spot creatures in their outdoor classroom.

Will worries about rate hikes dent realty stocks?

The real estate sector is back in the spotlight after housing sales registered strong growth in the July-September quarter of 2022. According to ANAROCK data, the sales of residential properties across Delhi-NCR, Mumbai Metropolitan Region, Chennai, Kolkata, Bengaluru, Hyderabad and Pune rose 41 per cent year-on-year to 88,234 units. New launches, too, climbed 45 per cent YoY to 93,490 units in these seven cities during the recently concluded quarter. However, after the pandemic, the sector stands vulnerable to successive rate hikes. Against this backdrop, analysts believe that the upbeat housing demand would override rate hikes in the long-run. Nishit Master, Portfolio Manager, Axis Securities says strong demand environment for realty. Steady inventory positive for new launches. Wage growth to offset rate hike turbulence. Bullish on Godrej Properties, DLF, Mahindra Lifestyle.  Moreover, investors have turned positive on the sector in the second quarter of FY23 after relative underperformance in the previous quarter. At the bourses, shares of Brigade Enterprises, DLF, Godrej Properties, Indiabulls Real Estate, Oberoi Realty, Prestige Estates, Phoenix Mills and Sobha have surged up to 28.3 per cent. In comparison, the S&P BSE Sensex and Nifty50 have gained over 8 per cent each, in the July-September quarter.   That said, experts fear that incessant rate hikes would inflate costs of raw materials, which would elevate property prices and dampen demand.  "This whammy of rising rates comes along with the inflationary trends of primary raw materials, including cement, steel, labour, etc, that have recently led to a rise in property prices. These factors will impact residential sales that did reasonably well in the first half of 2022," says Anuj Puri, Chairman, ANAROCK Group.  Since the present interest rate continues to be at lower levels than 10 years ago, more rate hikes carry the potential to derail demand momentum, warn analysts. Arun Chulani, Co-Founder, First Water Capital Fund says festive season to augur housing demand. Realty prices flat compared to last decade. Rate hikes still lower than 10 years ago. Rate hikes to dent home buyers sentiment. As regards today, rupee movement, foreign flows and crude oil prices will guide domestic markets on Thursday. Globally, crude inventory report, US inflation and employment data will be closely tracked.

Why you may have to wait longer for the 5G experience

You flaunt one of the 70 million odd handsets in India that are 5G-enabled. You live in one of the select cities where 5G services have been launched. But, still you can't enjoy the ‘blazing-fast' data speed promised by the next-gen technology. Why is that the case? Well, it's because many 5G smartphone models currently lack the software updates needed to enable 5G services on them. But there are a few lucky users too. The India Cellular and Electronics Association indicates, over 150 5G phone models have already been enabled with a patch across operators. However, that doesn't include select Samsung handsets and all of Apple's 5G-enabled iPhones. 5G-enabled smartphones from OnePlus and Google also lack software support for the network. This has effectively left most Indian users with premium devices out of the 5G network.  On Wednesday, the Department of Telecommunications had summoned both telecom companies and mobile device makers. The agenda included enabling 5G services for in-use handsets and giving the early adoption of 5G a push. The meeting followed complaints from telcos that device-makers have not released their updated software patches, which will allow users with 5G-enabled devices to access the recently rolled-out service. Telcos allege customers are unable to access 5G services on their handset, even though the service is available in Delhi, Mumbai, Kolkata, Chennai and Varanasi. A section of smartphone-makers, on the other hand, believe that telcos are being unfair to them. They say, even though telcos announced the launch of 5G services in the week of Dusshera, only a few 5G towers are currently operational.  According to device-makers, at least one telco in Delhi has only a handful of 5G towers with very limited coverage. Their argument: Without the minimum required number of towers in a circle, availability of 5G services will remain poor even after software upgrades. They say, sending over-the-air upgrades to all 5G handsets will take some time, because software patches need to be tested on various networks first.   However, there is some good news. Ahead of the DoT meeting, Apple said that the software update needed to enable 5G services in iPhones would start rolling out in December. The iPhone 14, iPhone 13 and iPhone 12 series, along with the third-generation iPhone SE, are compatible with 5G.  Hours after Apple's statement, Samsung also announced that it would roll out software updates needed to enable 5G services in its compatible-devices by mid-November.  Presently, only about 9 per cent of all smartphones in India are 5G-enabled. And their adoption is growing rapidly with shipments of 5G-enabled devices speeding up. According to Cybermedia Research, 27 million 5G-compatible devices were shipped in India in 2021, making up 16 per cent of all smartphone deliveries.  Between just April 2022 and August, 20 million 5G devices were shipped, accounting for 31 per cent of all smartphone deliveries. Within that period, Samsung came out as the top 5G-compatible brand in India with a 26 per cent market share. Xiaomi and OnePlus were second and third, respectively, with a minor difference in the number of units shipped by them. And there are other reasons why you may have difficulty finding 5G service. Reliance Jio's 5G service is available in Delhi, Mumbai, Kolkata and Varanasi. But, it is only available to users who have been invited.  Airtel 5G Plus has been launched in eight cities in a phased manner. Its customers in Delhi, Mumbai, Chennai, Bengaluru, Hyderabad, Siliguri, Nagpur and Varanasi will be among the first to experience the new technology.

Royal Enfield:When Vikram Lal, CEO & Founder of The Eicher Group, bought the Royal Enfield brand in 1994, the company was already losing money and market share. Product, operations, management, marketing and sales were facing issues. Many Eicher CEOs tried to revive the brand but failed to get Enfield back to its glorious old days. The company was about to shut Enfield when Siddhartha Lal, Vikram's 26-year-old son, put his hand up to revive Enfield. This is a mini-episode on how Siddhartha took Royal Enfield from the brink of bankruptcy to becoming a lifestyle brand and India's first global consumer brand. Royal Enfield is The Oldest Motorcycle Brand in Continuous Production. It found its origin in a British needle-making factory in the late 1800s. In 1901, the first Royal Enfield motorcycle was unveiled. The company made its way to the Indian market in 1949 and later set up a JV with Madras motors. The British arm of the company over the years was unable to sustain itself and eventually shut down, but the Indian JV business chugged along.In India, Royal Enfield is a cult, not just a motorcycle company. It is as urban a brand as rural. It was brought to India by the Brits, adopted by the Indian army and police, got popular among the socially powerful Zamindars- landlords in the 1960s. Today it is a social icon among millennials. When Siddhartha signed up for the job, he faced the Harley Davidson dilemma if you innovate, you upset the fans, and if you don't, your brand dies. So he positioned Royal Enfield as a lifestyle brand and kept its classic design and iconic engine thump. The new Royal Enfield was about independence, passion and freedom. This attracted the youth. They cared less about performance and mileage and more about being a part of a 100- year old nostalgia. They bought the new Royal Enfield because of the old one. He went on to take serval other counterintuitive decisions. For example, he built a new engine for Enfield, which was not a popular decision among Enfield fans. He chose to shut down the newly inaugurated Jaipur plant and kept the 50-year-old Chennai plant running. Siddartha pushed for international penetration into the U.S., Australia, Thailand and the U.K.As of June 2022, Royal Enfield's domestic sales increased by 40% YoY. There is a long way to go for Enfield, but Siddhathra has been able to revive and re-position Enfield as India's first global lifestyle brand. If you found this interesting, head on to reading Amrit Raj's book, Indian Icon: A Cult Called Royal Enfield.

Is Oracle Corporation in trouble in India?

US software maker Oracle on Wednesday agreed to pay $23 million to the Securities and Exchange Commission to settle charges against violation of the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act, or FCPA, between 2014 to 2019. During the period, its subsidiaries in India, UAE and Turkey created and used slush funds to bribe foreign officials. In India, the American markets regulator alleged that Oracle paid bribes to officials of a transportation company owned by the Ministry of Railways. Oracle did not admit or deny wrongdoing in agreeing to settle. This is not the first time that Oracle has been charged with violating the US anti-bribery law over India-related payments.  In 2012, it agreed to pay a $2 million fine to settle SEC charges concerning the creation of millions of dollars of unauthorised side funds by Oracle India from 2005 to 2007. The Indian unit allegedly set aside money outside its books that was eventually used to make unathorised payments to phony vendors, creating a risk that those funds could be used for illicit purposes such as bribery. Several multinationals have time and again fallen afoul of the FCPA including retail giant Walmart, medical device company Stryker, advertising group WPP, aerospace manufacturer Embraer, IT services company Cognizant, spirits companies Beam Suntory, AB InBev and Diageo, locomotive developer Wabtec and Cadbury owner Mondelez International. Enacted in 1977 and enforced by SEC and US Department of Justice, the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act, or FCPA, prohibits the payment of bribes to foreign officials to assist in obtaining or retaining business. It extends to US listed companies and their officers, directors, employees, stockholders, and agents including third party agents, consultants, distributors, joint-venture partners, and others.  It also contains accounting provisions that prohibit individuals and businesses from knowingly falsifying books and records or circumventing or failing to implement a system of internal controls.  Regardless of size, for a gift or other payment to violate the statute, the payer must have corrupt intent. The FCPA resource guide states that bribes are often concealed under the guise of legitimate payments such as consulting fees, commissions, marketing expenses, scientific incentives, travel and entertainment expenses and discounts.  Kunal Gupta, an expert in white-collar crime law, tells us why Indian agencies seldom take up such cases Kunal Gupta, Partner, Trilegal says legal standards in India differ from US. Most FCPA violations are settled, few are tested in court. Transactions involving private officials may violate FCPA not PCA.  Walmart's $282 million payment in 2019 was one of the biggest FCPA settlements involving India-related charges.  US authorities said Walmart's failure to operate a sufficient anti-corruption compliance program led its subsidiaries in Mexico, India, Brazil and China to hire third-party intermediaries and allow these middlemen to make improper payments to government officials to obtain store permits and licenses. In 2019, Cognizant Technology Solutions agreed to pay $25 million to SEC to resolve allegations that it authorised a contractor to pay a $2 million bribe to a senior government official in Tamil Nadu in 2014 to secure planning permits for the construction of its 2.7 million square foot campus in Chennai. Brazilian plane-maker Embraer's $206 million settlement in 2016 to resolve charges of corruption in four foreign contracts is an instance where SEC action has led to investigations in India.  Approximately $5.76 million was allegedly paid to an agent in India in connection with the sale of three highly specialised military aircraft to the Indian Air Force for $208 million. The payments were falsely recorded in Embraer's books and records as part of a consulting agreement that wasn't legitimate.  India's Central Bureau of Investigation is probing the bribery allegations.

Willkommen zur neuen Ausgabe von Chip & Charge dieses Mal mit dem Rücktritt von Roger Federer und den Ergebnissen des Davis Cups. Natürlich fangen Andreas und Philipp auch mit dem Rücktritt von Federer an bevor es dann rübergeht zum Davis Cup. Hier war Andreas in Hamburg vor Ort und hat dementsprechend Eindrücke und Stimmen mitgebracht. Zumindest für das deutsche Team war der Auftritt in Hamburg ein voller Erfolg. Am Ende konnte sich das Team des DTB als Gruppenerster für das zweite Finalturnier in Malaga qualifizieren. Entscheidend für den Erfolg mit jeweils drei Siegen waren Jan-Lennard Struff und das Doppel Kevin Krawietz und Tim Pütz. Dabei waren sowohl Struff als auch die Doppelkombination immer wieder in engen Situationen. Als zweites Team aus der Hamburger Gruppe konnte sich Australien qualifizieren. Frankreich und Belgien wurden auf die Plätze verwiesen. Im Viertelfinale, welches im November stattfinden wird, geht es für das deutsche Team gegen Kanada. Danach könnte Italien warten. Ordentliche Herausforderungen also. Enttäuschend verlief der Davis Cup hingegen für Großbritannien. Trotz eines gut wie breit aufgestellten Teams verloren die Briten in Glasgow sowohl gegen die USA wie auch gegen die Niederlande. Auch Damentennis wurde in der vergangenen Woche gespielt. In Potroz konnte sich Kaeterina Sinakova mit einer Energieleistung durchsetzen. Sinakova war gerade erst frisch vom Doppeltriumph in New York eingetroffen. Trotzdem konnte sie ihren ersten Einzeltitel seit fünf Jahren holen. Im Finale gewann sie gegen Elena Rybakina, im Halbfinale hatte Anna-Lena Friedsam das Nachsehen. Auch in Chennai gewann eine Tschechin. Hier setzte sich die 17-jährige Linda Fruhvirtova durch. Sie gewann ihren ersten WTA-Titel überhaupt. Bei einem stimmungsvollen Turnier konnte sie das Endspiel gegen Magda Linette gewinnen. Zum Abschluss der Sendung gibt es noch zwei News. So hat Simona Halep ihre Saison beendet. Sie hat sich einer Nasen-OP unterzogen. Zudem wurden in der letzten Woche einige Veränderungen für die Challenger Tour verkündet.

Global Policy Watch: Europe's WarGlobal policy issues and their implication for India— RSJThere is an energy crisis in Europe. Russia announced this week that it won't resume supplying gas to Europe via the Nord Stream 1 pipeline until the west lifts the sanctions over its invasion of Ukraine. Till last year, Russia accounted for about 45 percent of the EU's total gas imports. About a third of it flowed through Nord Stream 1. A few months back Russia halted supply via Nord Stream citing maintenance concerns. At least there was a pretense. Now the gloves are off. The weaponising of energy is complete. That apart you may have heard of this being the hottest summer in Europe in living memory. The rivers have run dry and hydel power generation is at an all-time low. The crisis is real. How bad is it? Well, if you go by estimates an average European household might end up spending over €500/month by March next year on their energy bill. This number was around  €160-170 /month a year back. This will mean an aggregated annual increase in energy spends in EU of about €2 tn. To put this in perspective, the total GDP of the member states is around €14 tn. No economy can take such a price surge in its stride, more so, when the inflation is already running at a multi-decadal high. Typically, they could do a few things to manage this. One option is to cap the prices of imported gas from Russia. The other is for the governments to absorb these price increases and lighten the burden for the people. The last option is to reduce demand by imposing rationing measures on people. The long term option is to move to renewables but that's not going to help anyone during this winter.  The idea of capping imported gas prices seems the easiest. Of course, price caps distort markets and will lead to other unintended consequences but you have to choose the lesser devil in scenarios like these. Except any price cap on Russian gas will mean you will have to deal with the wrath of Putin. On Wednesday, he gave EU leaders a peek into how he sees any attempt by the EU to impose a price cap. As CNBC reported:Responding to EU proposals to implement price caps on Russian energy imports, Putin told business leaders in Vladivostok that Russia could yet decide to rip up existing supply contracts.“Will there be any political decisions that contradict the contracts? Yes, we just won't fulfill them. We will not supply anything at all if it contradicts our interests,” Putin said at the Eastern Economic Forum in Russia's far east.“We will not supply gas, oil, coal, heating oil — we will not supply anything.”“We would only have one thing left to do: as in the famous Russian fairy tale, we would let the wolf's tail freeze. Freeze, freeze, the wolf's tail,” he said.Hmm. So, what's this famous Russian fairy tale about a tail? The good, ol' Pravda came to the rescue here:In the tale, the cunning fox made the stupid wolf catch fish in the frozen river by putting his tail into an ice hole. The fox would hop around the desperate and hungry wolf saying "freeze, freeze, the wolf's tail" until the ice hole froze trapping the wolf in the ice. Men from the village then came and beat the wolf for all the bad things that he had done to them in summer. The wolf struggled and escaped, but his tail was left in the frozen ice hole.I read that a few times to get my head around the fairy tale. It didn't make any sense given the context. I guess Putin wanted to give some folksy spin to his threat of freezing Europe this winter. Maybe Russians enjoyed that. Anyway, the upshot of this threat was visible in the meeting of the EU ministers on Friday that was convened to discuss the energy crisis. The ministers deferred the proposal to cap price agreeing that it needed more work and deliberation. Also, there was no real proposal to force a reduction in demand among the member countries. There is a voluntary pledge of cutting it by 15 percent but that might neither be enforced nor be adequate. I guess the price surge, if allowed, will eventually bring down the demand but which politician will want that scenario to be played out? That leaves the option of a combination of rationing for industries (less politically sensitive) and government subsidies to manage the pain for people. That's what different governments have been doing. France, as NYT reports, has asked businesses to appoint an ‘ambassador of energy sobriety' while spending over €26 billion since the Ukraine war to keep gas prices in check. Further:Germany, Europe's biggest user of Russian gas, reversed plans on Monday to shut down two of its three remaining nuclear power plants by the end of the year, and on Sunday announced a $65 billion aid package to ease the burden of high energy costs on citizens. Italy is looking to Algeria as a potential new supplier of natural gas to replace Russian fuel. In Spain, the government has begun a huge effort to improve energy efficiency in buildings and in industry.Also, it is not as if the utility companies are making money hand over fist at this time. All utilities companies use derivatives available on utility exchanges to protect themselves from price swings. Typically, they lock in a price for the future to guard themselves against price falling. When prices surge, like they have now, they cannot cancel these derivatives and this leads to huge losses at least on paper. Eventually, if the prices remain elevated and the derivatives contracts run out (usually 6-9 months), the utilities will make a windfall. But till then the exchanges are at risk that the utilities will not be able to honour their derivatives contracts. So, the exchanges will demand that utilities give them cash collaterals for such an eventuality. What could be the size of such collaterals put together? A reasonable estimate is about €1.5 trillion. There is no way that utilities are sitting on that kind of working capital to stump up this collateral. For the markets to function efficiently and to avoid a Lehmann-like contagion, some solution has to be found. One is to cap the price and prevent further paper losses. But Putin has closed that option. Eventually, the governments will have to step in as the back stop. There's a lot of heavy lifting the governments have to do. It will further raise their debt burden that's already at their peak after the spending spree during the pandemic. The taxpayers will have to foot the bill; one way or the other. I don't know about you but it doesn't seem to me there are any good options left for Europe in the short run. Some kind of a structural solution can be worked out where the tariff deficit is allowed to be spread over a longer term, thus allowing the utility companies to securitize these future revenues. It is easier said than done though. The other scenario is for EU members to agree on price caps, Putin's wrath notwithstanding. This will happen because humouring Putin isn't a long term solution. That apart, there could be some forcible demand reduction, then a hope for a milder than usual winter and a scenario where there's an increase in supply from the Middle-East and the US because of the likely move away to Russian oil and gas by China and India. A combination of all of these could help Europe tide this crisis over. It isn't going to be easy at all. Europe's winter of discontent has begun. And it could be a long one. Meanwhile, Europe isn't alone in the energy crisis. Here's the Washington Post on China:Amid the most intense global heat wave in decades, China experienced another electricity crisis this summer. Ten months after surging coal prices drove widespread curbs on power consumption, parts of central and eastern China had to ration power after months of drought and scorching heat.This year's heat wave across central and eastern China ran for more than 70 days, the country's longest stretch since such record keeping began in 1961. Rainfall dropped more than 45 percent across the Yangtze River basin, which supplies water to more than 400 million people.Supply constraints, in turn, forced severe restrictions on power use in Sichuan and other provinces that tap into Sichuan's power. Sichuan authorities imposed comprehensive restrictions on industrial power consumption starting Aug. 15, while neighboring Chongqing, a provincial-level municipality with a population of 32 million, introduced similar cuts two days later. Additional restrictions for commercial spaces and households meant limited access to cooling, even when daytime highs exceeded 100 degrees Fahrenheit.And China's short term response won't be music to the ears of the climate warriors:Authorities are likely to respond by expanding their alternatives to hydropower. This may well include building more coal-fired power plants, which are responsible for roughly 40 percent of China's carbon emissions. The 2021 crisis saw the same response; provincial coal-fired power plant approvals rose almost 50 percent year on year in the first half of 2022 as the central leadership stressed the importance of “energy security.”Thankfully, India has seen through its summer months before the global energy crisis has come to a head. The global demand for coal has surged as countries have been forced to hark back to thermal power plants to meet their energy needs. Almost 70 percent of electricity generation in India is from thermal power plants. The domestic supply of coal isn't going to be enough and Indian companies will need to stockpile more for future security. This is an area to keep an eye on while looking at the macroeconomic indicators for India that otherwise look benign in a troubled world.  Not(PolicyWTF): No Exports Without ImportsThis section looks at egregious public policies. Policies that make you go: WTF, Did that really happen? - Pranay KotasthaneIf one were to make a word cloud of our editions, the term “import substitution” would appear right in the centre, in angry red colour. On many occasions, we have highlighted that high import tariffs and Production Linked incentives (PLIs) are at cross purposes. The tariffs end up increasing input costs to such an extent that it negates the monetary benefits of PLI schemes. The result is that manufacturing in India remains as uncompetitive as it was earlier, despite the government providing significant financial incentives. Given our abhorrence for higher tariff barriers, it was a welcome surprise that the Minister of State for Electronics and Information Technology released an excellent report on August 29th, which has empirical evidence on the importance of trade for creating a domestic electronics industry.The report, titled Globalise to Localise: Exporting at Scale and Deepening the Ecosystem are Vital to Higher Domestic Value Addition in Electronics, is written by trade economists from Indian Council for Research on International Economic Relations (ICRIER). It makes a crucial point that should interest anyone interested in Indian public policy: India must first globalise and only then localise if it aspires to be a global production and export hub for electronics. I guess this recommendation would hold to a large extent in other sectors as well.But let's get back to electronics. The report highlights that both Viet Nam and India exported the same value of electronics items in 2010. But by 2020, Viet Nam's electronics exports had become seven times that of India's. What just happened? The report argues that the reason could be the difference in trade strategies followed by Viet Nam and China on one hand, and by India on the other. The difference is this. Indian governments have pursued a strategy of simultaneously increasing electronics exports and boosting domestic value addition per unit of total demand. For increasing exports, governments used tax rebates and built special economic zones. For boosting domestic value addition, governments deployed higher custom duties for components, and local sourcing norms for public procurement. In contrast, both Viet Nam and China focused on growing their exports at scale first. At first, this led to a decrease in the domestic value added per unit of demand. This is because companies preferred to import components, assemble, and then export them. Only after electronics exports had achieved global scale did the two countries target local content addition. That too, through instruments such as sourcing fairs and technology upgradation programmes, instead of erecting trade barriers. Over time, not only did the exports continue growing, but also a competitive components industry mushroomed. Hence the report suggests that India too should first globalise and then localise. The comparative analysis in the paper is illuminating. I'll leave you with the recommendations chart, which has specific ideas for putting this strategy into effect. From a political economy viewpoint, it's interesting that the electronics ministry unveiled this report. I hope that it suggests that the government is willing to reconsider its strategy of high custom duties for domestic value addition. To become a global manufacturing hub, we need to internalise that import substitution is self-defeating.PS: This report's analysis also makes for an excellent public policy teaching resource.India Policy Watch: Kaun Kitne Paani Mein?Insights on topical policy issues in India— RSJThis week Bangalore had rains. Tip tip barsaa paani. And paani ne aag lagaa di. Pictures of streets of Bangalore looking like a river in spate with high-end luxury cars drowning in them made the rounds. The poor took the usual brunt. The familiar lament of lack of urban planning, the venality of municipal corporations in big cities and the apathy of citizens soon followed. Such flooding is a common phenomenon now even in cities that don't have a history of heavy rainfall. Over the past few years, there have been similar pictures from Chennai, Hyderabad and Pune.  There are four factors at play here. First, there's climate change. It could mean different things to different people. But let's accept short bursts of intense and often unseasonal rainfall is a thing now in many parts of India and the world. It didn't happen this often in the past. So, expect flooding when you get more than 150 mm of rainfall in under 3 hours in a densely populated urban landscape like it happened in Bangalore this week.. Second, urbanisation is good for India and it will only gather more pace. Cities provide network benefits, greater opportunities and they help diffuse historical identities that get in the way of social mobility. New cities or satellite towns cannot be planned and developed top down like many policy makers think when they announce such plans. So, there's no point arguing for reducing the burden of a large city by proposing a plan to ‘develop' new cities. A city emerges organically on the back of the millions of individual transactions that continue growing because of network effects. You cannot control them though you can anticipate their growth and plan to manage it. That planning is totally absent in India. The numerous cases of lake beds and natural reservoirs being usurped for construction, the lack of any thinking about the topography of a location and the flow of water in it before allowing for buildings to come up and consistent reduction in green cover - all of these mean there's nowhere for water to go except flood homes and then stand still till it is pumped out. That brings me to the third point. The way the political economy is structured right now, it is difficult to see how there will be enough devolution of power and finances to a city. A big city most often is a bankrupt political orphan in India. It doesn't look like changing any time soon. And lastly, you have to ask how long will citizens remain stoic and manage their lives through these great difficulties? Should we beware the fury of the patient? Among these four, I don't foresee any correction of course for the first three factors. They will continue in the same vein. That leaves only the citizen. She will have no choice but to accept these as inevitable and then find private solutions to what are public problems. These solutions will tend to be locally optimal but suboptimal for the whole. The numerous gated communities that try doing this are examples of this. You can live in a gated republic and keep the state away. But nature is a different ballgame. It doesn't care for your gates. Things will only get worse for citizens. Will there be a tipping point, I often ask myself? I don't think so. People will grin and bear it. And then forget it.Resilience of the people is the timeless safeguard against a revolution. Matsyanyaaya: Chip Trouble Big fish eating small fish = Foreign Policy in action— Pranay KotasthaneIn a Politico article earlier this week, the authors explain Russia's desperate attempts to get hold of some pretty basic integrated circuits (chips) for military equipment. This news comes closely after the delays in delivering frigates to Indian Navy. The Indian government would do well to keep a close eye on these developments.Regardless of Russia's intent, its defence production competence has been set back many years because of the coordinates sanctions. This means India should develop contingency plans for all pending military platform deliveries from Russia.Russia doesn't have reliable semiconductor manufacturing facilities of its own. We should expect that it will try to get hold of these legacy-node chips through the black market. We should also expect that some Chinese foundries like SMIC might come to Russia's rescue. In either case, it has the same lesson for India - Russia's ability to deliver secure military platforms to India has taken a big hit. We should seek other alternatives.HomeWorkReading and listening recommendations on public policy matters[Article] This post by Hannah Ritchie on effective but counter-intuitive ideas on climate change action is gold.[Book] This excellent book, Global Value Chains and the Missing Links Cases from Indian Industry by Saon Ray and Smita Miglani[Article] S Vishwanath has the most informative article on the Bengaluru floods.

When Warren Buffet's Berkshire Hathaway invested $232 million into China's BYD, it was a nascent startup that had just started selling electric vehicles. Fourteen years on, Berkshire's stake is worth $7.5 billion dollars and BYD has dethroned Tesla as the world's biggest EV maker by sales. Between April and June, BYD shipped 3.54 lakh EV units, an increase of 266% year-on-year, while Tesla's global sales grew 27% to over 2.54 lakh units. It also overtook South Korea's LG Energy as the world's second-biggest EV battery manufacturer, behind China's CATL.  The Shenzen-based group is now aggressively pushing into foreign markets, including India where it is set to unveil its first e-SUV soon, with deliveries beginning in January.  The company has been selling its electric MPV e6 to corporate and fleet customers in India since November 2021. Its upcoming model, the Atto3, will also be assembled at BYD's plant near Chennai which has an installed capacity of 10,000 units per annum. Tigor and Nexon EV maker Tata Motors held a whopping 85% share of the passenger EV market in FY22. They were followed by China's SAIC-owned British brand MG Motors at 11.5% with its ZS EV.   According to the Federation of Automobile Dealers Association, out of the 2.72 million passenger vehicles retailed in India in FY22, EVs constituted just 17,802 units or 0.65%. However, this represents a 257% jump over FY21.  Sanjay Gopalakrishnan, Senior VP, Electric Passenger Vehicle Business, BYD India says we have our own technologies that give us an edge. BYD India will initially sell top-of-the-line premium EVs. By 2030, we are aiming at a 40% e-PV market share. India is among a handful of countries that support the global EV30@30 campaign, which aims to have at least 30% of new vehicle sales be electric by 2030. BYD's entry is a sign of the growing interest of global carmakers to gain a foothold in India's EV market. After launching Kona EV in 2019 to test the market, Hyundai India is getting ready to launch its first electric crossover, Ioniq 5, this year.  The South Korean firm has also started developing a small electric car for India as part of its plan to launch six EVs in India by 2028. Hyundai's sister company Kia launched its first electric car in India, the premium crossover EV6, recently.  Sweden's Volvo debuted its electric compact SUV XC40 Recharge in India in July. Tata's electric SUV Curvv will hit the market within the next two years while MG Motor will launch an affordable mass-market EV next year.  Volkswagen is also looking to sell its first electric car, the ID.4 SUV, in India in limited quantities next year. Mahindra & Mahindra will launch five electric SUVs for both domestic and international markets starting in 2024. Tata Motors plans to launch the Avinya, its pure electric car, in 2025. Luxury car firms are not holding back either. Mercedes-Benz will become the first company to assemble a luxury EV in India as it launches three electric cars this year.  Audi India's launched its maiden EV offering e-tron last year. In a span of six months, BMW launched three electric models in India - the iX SUV, MINI hatchback and i4 sedan. Porsche has brought its all-electric Taycan and Jaguar its I-PACE.    American EV startup Fisker is aiming to launch two EVs in India. Experts say the pace of electrification in the luxury segment is expected to be much faster than the mass car segment Sanjay Gopalakrishnan of BYD India says 45,000 to 50,000 EV cars could be sold in India this year. Only the initial 1.5% to 2% EV adoption takes times. EV adoption will pick up when resale market emerges. At the current pace, EVs could make up as much as 1.4% of total domestic passenger vehicle sales this year signalling an increase in adoption. With more than a dozen OEMs vying for India's EV passenger vehicle market, first movers like Tata Motors and MG Motors are set to face some serious co
