Alagh Publisher: National Book Trust Rs 90 Agriculture is far more important for the Indian economy and policymaking than its share of GDP suggests It employs the largest proportion of the workforce and food has been the largest contributor to inflation for several years preventing the Reserve Bank of India from cutting interest rates even as growth elsewhere has collapsed The policy response to this problem has been muted thus far and one wonders if it is because of a lack of understanding of what is needed Therefore a book by one of the foremost agricultural economists in India on the future of Indian agriculture becomes essential reading for the policy wonk and the student of the Indian economy alike Alagh first estimates the future demand for agricultural output mainly food then assesses and addresses the supply-side constraints of labour land water capital and technology He offers some prescriptions but mostly focuses on framing the problem reviewing the research on it and evaluating the success or failure of government policy so far The discussion is wide-ranging from patterns of urbanisation to the justification for affirmative action (while discussing food subsidies) and even the interlinking of rivers Alagh emphasises the need for improvements in agricultural productivity through higher capital investment in order to move the workforce out of agriculture He laments the lack of infrastructure spending on agriculture from the early 1980s onwards though he is encouraged by more recent trends Alagh debunks some of the popular theories that project high growth in the demand for foodgrain and cereals focusing instead on the diversification of the consumption basket as income levels increase He also demonstrates that India is urbanising faster than official data suggests This means that the count of non-agricultural workers in areas classed as rural is under-reported by the tens of millions and this population is ignored by official policies With decades of policymaking and research experience Alagh throws up some fascinating insights For example they reveal how ideas around the poverty line have evolved and how experiments in the late 1980s around “favoured crop favoured region” fared (not well) That estimates of per capita expenditure by different government departments were divergent even 45 years back was comforting in a perverse way for this reviewer Like a good teacher Alagh sets the framework for each step and then surveys relevant approaches and the available literature This process while frustratingly detailed in places and referencing the author’s prior work perhaps too often enlightens the reader on the issues that matter and also the widely different views that exist Some researchers for example estimate Indian grain demand in 2020 at 200 million tons while others estimate close to 300 million tons As the author says “…there is no one predetermined future” A fascinating factoid suggests that if viewed purely in terms of population density India’s urbanisation would be 91 per cent while 31 per cent is reported There are a few flaws though in addition to some editing issues The analysis of labour supply in agriculture focuses on the decline in the percentage of workforce in agriculture over the decades whereas what matters is the number of people incorporating population growth Similarly despite the book’s recent date of publication the last used data on arable area is for 2002-03 and the author laments its decline: more recent data (2011-12) is available and shows a steady recovery in arable area since then One also notices a certain rigidity of ideas for example when arguing that the aggregate elasticity of employment in relation to output in India can be positive ie if agricultural output grows more people get employed in it A discussion of how the availability of alternative employment and rising wages affects this correlation would have made the analysis more contemporary One also missed a discussion on the difficulty of policymaking in a sector that is almost completely informal: this creates a lack of quality data and also reduces the extent of control policymakers can exercise given the fragmentation in the sector But all in all this is an enlightening and thorough book throwing light on a remarkably diverse set of issues that impacts agriculture

nominee for a US Senate seat on Tuesday dealing a blow to President Donald Trump and other party leaders who had argued that rival Luther Strange was a better bet to advance their priorities in Washington An outspoken evangelical Christian who has twice lost his position as the state’s top judge Moore won election with a fierce anti-Washington message and a call to put religion at the center of public life “We have to return the knowledge of God and the Constitution of the United States to the United States Congress” he said With all 67 counties reporting Moore led Strange by 55 percent to 45 percent Despite campaigning for Strange Trump congratulated Moore for his victory and urged him to defeat Democrat Doug Jones in the December election to fill a seat that was held by Jeff Sessions before he became US Attorney General in February “Congratulations to Roy Moore on his Republican Primary win in Alabama Luther Strange started way back & ran a good race Roy WIN in Dec” Trump wrote on Twitter Moore is favored to win the December election as Alabama has not elected a Democrat to the Senate since 1992 Moore 70 first lost his seat on the Alabama Supreme Court for refusing to remove a Ten Commandments monument from the courthouse and a second time for defying the US Supreme Court’s decision to legalize same-sex marriage The race exposed rifts between the Republican party’s conservative base and its moneyed establishment — and within Trump’s inner circle Trump and Vice President Mike Pence appeared with Strange at rallies in the race’s closing days and a political group affiliated with Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell spent close to $9 million on his behalf Moore meanwhile drew support from Trump’s former chief strategist Steve Bannon and his secretary of Housing and Urban Development Ben Carson Bannon said Moore’s victory could embolden other grassroots challengers to try to unseat well-funded Republican incumbents in next year’s congressional elections “You’re going to see in state after state people that follow the model of Judge Roy Moore that do not need to raise money from the elites” he said at Moore’s victory party Strange 64 a

will see more protectionism and countries retreating from globalization” German Finance Minister Wolfgang Schaeuble told reporters after a meeting of the finance ministers and central bankers of the Group of 20 which represents the biggest global economies Germany is chairing the group this year The comments came a day after Trump ordered the US Commerce Department to investigate whether steel imports posed a threat to US national security _ a move that could lead to the US imposing tariffs on steel And on Friday US Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin repeated a call for the IMF to police the currency markets and call out countries that undervalue their currencies to gain an unfair price advantage for their exporters At a meeting last month in Baden-Baden Germany the G-20 dropped a pledge to oppose trade protectionism amid pushback from the Trump administration which says trade policy needs to more clearly benefit American companies and workers But in Washington this week IMF chief Christine Lagarde and World Bank President Jim Yong Kim talked up the benefits of unfettered global trade Lagarde on Thursday described protectionist measures as “self-inflicted wounds” that hobble economic growth At his news conference Friday Schaeuble dodged questions about whether other countries expressed concerns about Trump’s America First trade rhetoric during the G-20 meetings which got

December is on target for more hikes this year and is weighing whether to begin selling part of its vast portfolio of bonds a move that also could drive up rates Federal Reserve Vice Chairman Stanley Fischer said in a CNBC interview on the sidelines of the meetings that he had not seen anything yet to change the view that the Fed will raise rates two more times this year but he said the actual rate hikes “are dependent on what happens to the economy” On when the Fed might begin reducing its massive $45 trillion balance sheet Fischer noted that the minutes of the last meeting showed that central bank officials discussed making a decision on when to begin trimming assets by the end of the year But he said no decision had been made yet on whether the reductions in bond holdings would start by December or just be announced Rising interest rates in the United States could drive up the dollar hurt American exporters and squeeze foreign borrowers who took out loans they have to repay
