8/18 update from bloomberg - Asia’s richest man spent the early few months of the pandemic raising more than $20 billion by selling stakes in his technology venture. Now, Mukesh Ambani is on a shopping spree. The Indian billionaire is looking to acquire several local online retailers to help expand product offerings, people familiar with the matter said, as he races to build his e-commerce platform and compete against Amazon.com. Reliance Industries, Ambani’s oil, retail and telecommunications conglomerate, is in various stages of negotiations to either buy out or purchase stakes in Urban Ladder, an online furniture seller, Zivame, a lingerie maker, and Netmeds, which delivers medicine, the people said. There’s no certainty the deliberations may result in a deal, they added.

Respect and birthday wishes for India's finest historian, Professor Irfan Habib, who turns 89 today. We cannot match his brilliance and erudition, but we can strive for some of his passionate commitment and unflagging energy. A continuing inspiration.

legalese of independence of india subcontinent - how is india doing in ending poverty and mediating faiths- can jayati ghosh nehru uni tell us? the last time i went to india 2004- indira gandhi culture centre close to parliament was hosting 1000 gandhians discussing global reconciliation- there were a lot of ideas to write up but the next week the tsunami fit so that never happened

One study showed that more than half of all residents living in Mumbai slums may have contracted the coronavirus, compared with 16% of non-slum residents. Social distancing isn’t an option when you are sharing toilets and kitchens with scores of neighbors, and crowding around communal standpipes.

Developing economies are experiencing their sharpest contractions on record. In­dia’s shrank by almost one-quar­ter dur­ing the April to June pe­riod com­pared with a year ear­lier;  Peru’s shrank by one-third; Mexico’s by almost one-fifth. The World Bank projects that Covid-19 could push as many as 100 million people back into extreme poverty this year, about half of them in South Asia and most of the rest in sub-Saharan Africa. World Bank President David Malpass warned “that number could go higher” if the pandemic worsens, or drags on
am i correct to think the state of kamala's mother town chennai has a lot to mediate? - it isnt particular pro Hindi or muslim; youth there probably wish the bay of bengal would get back to the number 1 trading bay in the world which it probably was at the turn of 19th century befor britain took over the chinese coast to for tead trade which was ten percent of all britain's world trade needs

i still dont understand- did britain move calcutta to delhi because that was easier to continue ownership of india as opposed to trading reasons

of course north of chennai is bangalore- is there any explanation why this became hi-tech epicentre of india 

i note the other state to the south on the west side includes kerala which naila knows as the epicentre of amma; i have an impressions that kerala is often led in locally smartest ways

what i see of mumbai region is basically the stories of gandhi as he sailed 6 times between mubai durban and london; i understand its now the financial centre ; i believe tata corporation is probably the most exciting organisation in india - one i would love to connect with brac university 

these are just ignorant first stabs- on visits to brac i attended an event with peple expressing views from all south asua countries- i think sultan may know a lot morte - at that time he was at brac university- has previously studied i boston - is currently in sri lanka before returning to a us university next year- just as we need one non-partisan but pro-youth correspondent from different india states to co-edit a briefing to kamala harris we could extend that to neighboring nations? by all means lets make sure this is a girls view where different - if moocs were done properly this resource would be the start of a mooc of wins-wins between peoples communities and sharing sdg solutions they most need- why this didnt get started while jim kim was at world bank is beyond me- but we absolutely need to land this on kamala's desk- she will inherit the most divisive foreign intel ever - one which has never wanted india to see a united view of the region

“Samir understood that imperialism would retreat and the socialist transition would advance only on condition that the internationalism of workers and peoples progresses, in our minds as in our practices”, remembers Remy Herrera.

The state revenues are expected to fall severely following the pandemic induced economic slowdown. Thus, the centre has decided to renege on its commitment to the states, claiming that its responsibility ends with transferring sums.

The major sources of foreign exchange for Lebanon, tourism and remittances, have virtually dried up owing to the pandemic, causing currency depreciation, a massive external debt and ultimately a rampaging inflation.

“To have a law like the Unlawful Activities Prevention Act (UAPA), under which a completely innocent person can be kept in jail for an inordinate length of time, is a negation of democracy”, writes Prabhat Patnaik.

As the Covis-19 pandemic spread across countries, governments across the world have imposed lockdowns and taken other drastic measures to control the contagion. This has led to unprecedent shocks to the global economy, as economic activity has come close to collapse in many regions of the world, affecting both demand and supply.
The articles in this section analyse the economic processes in this still-unfolding story, analysing the effects on the economy and different segments, the policy responses and other proposals for coming out of this crisis.
