Inefficiencies in fragmented markets.

I have noticed a few peculiar things about the commercial environment in India. No doubt it is extremely competitive and highly volatile but there is something that I don’t seem to understand.

I am sure you must have seen several places in India where a million people sell just one type of good. What do you think is common between them? Yes of course, the damn goods. And guess what, all those goods are most likely coming from a single place where a thousand people actually manufacture those goods in a very similar fashion using the same technology which is indeed coming from about a hundred people making that same machinery in an exactly similar way. Now the funny part here is that this practice has been going on since several decades now and in most of the cases there has been no up-gradation whatsoever. Continue reading

What India needs?

Money - Black and White Money

Coins

I am writing this blog after about three months of being a part of the Indian Economy. This may sound really fancy but it in fact isn’t. As a matter of fact, I could have just stood on the roads and sold some “chana” to understand the same. But I obviously didn’t take that route. In any case, you may already know what I am about to share with you either partially or completely. What I’ll do is reassert the same. Continue reading

Prelude:

Politician 1: We have already stolen everything from the country, what do we do now?

Politician 2:  We can still sell the parts of the country to these firangs. This way we will soon be earning in dollars!

Politician 1: Lets do it fast before we are thrown from here.

Politician 2: Hold on, I am already tweeting Barack ji.

The Blog:

I haven’t written much since the past 2 months mainly due to exams but now things look good and I am looking forward to write in a much more orderly and a regular fashion. So this is where I’ll end defending myself and actually start writing about what has been a hot topic in India during the past few months. I have been wanting to write on this topic since a long time especially because I recently wrote this article about how to sell a country in 5 easy steps and the government seems to have taken it seriously.

The Day Britain Cried. They Call It The Black Wednesday.

Black WednesdayToday is the 20th anniversary of the day popularly known as Black Wednesday. It was the day when some folks made billions of dollars out of short selling while the economy of UK screamed in agony. Many of you may have a brief idea about what happened on that day. Yes! A guy by the name George Soros turned into a billionaire and is now trying to decriminalize marijuana in California but that’s just the fancy part of it. The crisis UK went through during that time was the real deal. It was sad, in fact devastating but it‘s got so much to learn from. There is a lot to learn from this one incident. If economy is something that interests you then fasten your seat belts because I am going to show you the real game. Continue reading

If there were true peace, there could’ve been lesser people starving to death each year

Peace!

Peace! (Photo credit: aldrin_muya)

Death due to starvation is a very sensitive topic. All of us have read and heard about people dying due to starvation but we fail to do anything about it. This is probably due to the fact that it’s not us who are starving. Also, we can’t really do much about it considering the fact that food inflation has been climbing faster than any Sherpa who has climbed the Everest. So does this mean that we cannot do anything about this issue? We can put the parliament on fire if we want to but that’s not why I am writing this blog. You will be surprised to know that by the time you read this, 10 Indians would have already died of starvation. Continue reading

How to sell a country in 5 easy steps.

Sell a country in 5 easy steps!

Country Sold Out. Check Again Later.

So you want to know how to sell your country? But first I would like to clarify that this blog is banned for terrorists and foreign speculators. If you are one, please leave the page immediately and check out some other blog. If you aren’t, continue reading. Selling a country isn’t really that difficult. There are thousands in India who are already doing it and nothing seems to stop them. By nothing I take into account the CBI, the CAG and the Supreme Court. Also, the method I am going to describe below has only been tested in India but you are free to try it out in your own countries as well, although I shall not be responsible if you get into any shit because of it.

We, the consumers, will win the Third World War.

This image was selected as a picture of the we...

A glimpse of what a war looks like (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

I am not trolling with you folks if that’s what you think. Also, the third world war I am referring to isn’t something that will involve nuclear weapons or anything fancy. The best is that you might just remain completely ignorant about the whole war but in reality still win. Also, unlike Nostradamus I’ll actually assure you with the prediction I am making without using any kind of riddles or similar techniques. One last thing, this war will also lead to a temporary decrease in inflation.

Without further ado Continue reading
