Wish you all a very happy new year.
Let's begin the journey in a new year. The day went extremely great and much more happier than I was in the early morning. Thanks to friends and fellow citizens of India and the world for making the day better.
The biggest good news for this year is the launch of THE NEW ECONOMIST, International Journal of Global Economists. This journal is published from Chennai. I have a small role in helping to make it and have also contributed two articles. One on higher education and other one on skilling youth in India. Hope this new venture grow more and more brings some concrete changes in the peoples mind about the missed ideas of all kinds economic, social and political etc.
The year 2014 is going to be as interesting as the year went in 2009, 2004, 1998 and so on. I am sure you got it. I am talking about the elections in April or May and the fate of the big beasts which have been crying like wolfs.
The year 2014 is unlikely to record the repeat of the NGOs big shows for public policy drama in the national capital, all in the name of social causes.
The year 2014 is going to be as unpredictable as in the past as far as the Indian economy is concerned. But the economists and analysts strive to make all kinds of predicts to make headline news. That become a norm now.
Here are some good reading on the opening account of first blog post in 2014.
