According to The Economist, India's proposal to give every citizen a cash transfer using the digital platform Aadhar could reduce absolute poverty from 22 percent to 0.5 percent. For a country that is home to a third of the world's poor, could Universal Basic Income (UBI) fundamentally change the picture of poverty, health and well-being in India and the world?
At the same time, removing 86 percent of the cash circulating in a cash-heavy economy had a sudden, negative impact on India’s growth rate. Almost six months – and a major regional election – later what are the lasting effects of demonetization? Is a cashless society in the future?
The architect of India’s annual Economic Survey, Chief Economic Adviser Arvind Subramanian - a CGD senior fellow currently on leave – returns to the Center to discuss the big policy ideas making a dramatic mark on India’s economy, and what they could mean for the world.

Subject: Participation for Sa-Dhan's National Conference 2016
Sa-Dhan's National Conference 2016
Date: 14th and 15th September 2016, New Delhi
Venue: India Habitat Centre
We are at a moment of time, when we should look at leveraging the several strengths of MFIs as well as Banks and future Banks focussed on the poor, such as – wide outreach and presence in remote areas, high customer loyalty and trust, improved access to financial resources through internally accrued profits as well as support of investors – in order to pursue a broader developmental agenda.
Water and sanitation is an area where several MFIs have been able to play a role by providing loans that have enabled their clients to secure water connections, install hand pumps and construct toilets. Many SHPIs and MFIs have also been involved in efforts related to water conservation and use of solar energy. We need to collaborate and find ways to scale these up so that they can bring about a significant change.
On that note, we are pleased to announce that Sa-Dhan's National Conference is to be held on 14th & 15th September, 2016 in New Delhi, India. The National Conference is a unique opportunity for the stakeholders to think collectively on various contemporary issues, share experiences and innovations, develop collaborations and synergies that need to be nurtured for growth and development of the financial inclusion sector. The conference is a platform to provide strategic guidance for policy formulation and future direction of the sector. Every year the ‘Sa-Dhan's National Conference' witnesses the presence of diverse set of stakeholders: Lawmakers, Policymakers, Regulators, Banks & Financial Institutions, Academicians and Researchers, Practitioners, Media and support agencies etc. The Conference will have participants representing the entire gamut of the Financial Inclusion Industry including International Delegates.
In this year's conference, themed, "Financial Inclusion on the Path to Sustainable Development Goals", we wish to evolve strategies which can help us direct ourselves towards addressing broader social development challenges, even as the exciting developments in the financial inclusion space offers unprecedented opportunities to us.

Dad had previously helped The Economist previously map japan's impact on livelihoods around the world from 1962, open learning worlwide from 1972 and china's from 1975 but had been refused a visa from Indira Gandhi's India in spite of being married to the daughter of the scottish judge who wrote up the legalese of india's independence with Gandhi. He had also served in world war 2 as teenage navigator of RAF planes over modernday Bangladesh and Myanmar. So he knew the nature of the region so to speak. And all this gelled with returning to cambridge to be last alumni class informed by keynes on hippocratic oath of professional economists as exponential futures primary system mapmakers. Dad also shared in his father's hairy experiences as a british consul in stalins moscow and later the last red sea port used by Jews to escape Hitler. His childhood geographically often mirrored peter drucker who was about 10 years elder and whom he first met in Moscow. History the way small business peoples entrepreneurially freed ,it not how the richest paid academics to write it up always seemed to offer dad peacemaking clues. So John's final contributor to MIT week on how American politicians of all stripes have lost any spiral understanding of history even as mainly american technology/coding has globalised us all is scary to me. I would suggest black and latino youth write their own curricula as fast as possible and peer to peer teach it but then america's youth sustainability challenges may be the hardest in the so called civilised world.
