presented the Lifetime Achievement Award Maharashtra Governor K Sankarnarayanan was the chief guest on the occasion PTI On Thursday delivering the VKRV Rao lecture in Bengaluru chief economic advisor Arvind Subramanian made a frank speech inspirational and heroic something one typically hear only in films not in real life The core of Subramanian’s speech (read the full text below) are three issues: One Subramainan said assessments made by economic commentators and bankers are not often independent and they tend to endorse the ‘right side of power’ To get clarity take a look at these lines from the speech “My claim is that experts often hold back their objective assessment Instead they censor themselves and in public fora are insufficiently critical and independent of officialdom — whether the officials are in Mumbai or Delhi” “To the extent they offer criticism it is watered down to the point of being unidentifiable as criticism" the CEA said Arvind Subramanian "Bankers are careful not to get on the wrong side of the government or the RBI because they worry about losing access and because they are regulated by them" "So before policy decisions are taken the experts tend to express the views they think officials are likely to take After policy actions they try hard to endorse the decisions already taken As a result we in the government do not really benefit from their wisdom" So Subramanian’s basic point here is that experts need to speak their mind without fearing the wrath of the government no matter how unpleasant their views are as long as they are objective assessments Only such assessments come handy for the government to make better policy decisions There is indeed merit in the CEA’s point Only fearless objective analyses not biased views can have constructive results in a democracy Fair advice but only if Subramanian himself could set an example to other experts There aren’t many examples of him doing that on critical issues It wasn’t long ago when the CEA publicly said he could not speak on the issue of beef ban because he could lose his job “You know that if I answer this question I will lose my job But thank you nevertheless for asking the question" Subramanian had said (read a PTI report here) while interacting with students of the Mumbai University in March last year The question to CEA then was that if the beef ban will have any adverse impact on the farmers’ incomes or the rural economy and his matter-of-fact reply was met with a round of applause PTI reported Beef ban is one of the major political issues the Narendra Modi government had to deal with during the first three years of its term Politically sensitive since the BJP ruled states are in favour of beef ban and slaughter ban Violence in the name of ‘beef eating’ including cases of murder had raised fingers on the Modi-government Was Subramainan speaking his mind on an economy-related question or simply being on the right side of power when he said this The second point Subramanian has raised in his speech is about the credibility of global rating agecnies "Why do we take global rating agencies seriously at all" he asked citing the example of how raters treat India and China differently when it comes to sovereign credit ratings India has the lowest investment grade and the lower the grade is the higher the cost of India to secure international investments "The rating agencies have been inconsistent in their treatment of China and India Given this record — what we call Poor Standards — my question is: why do we take these rating analysts seriously at all" he said in an apparent reference to rating agency Standard & Poor’s Here Subramanian has a valid point Rating agencies’ credibility ability to forecast economic developments (remember the utter failure of raters to foresee the 2008 global financial crisis) rating shopping by companies and the parameters they use to evaluate sovereign ratings have received much criticism worldwide But if Subramanian wants to write off rating agencies that would be only a wishful thinking The influence these agencies command with global investors are too big to question by any developing country Particularly for an economy like India which still has long road ahead to command a position like what China and US enjoy there is very little scope to ignore global raters to attract investments India hasn’t reached a position to say that it is not at the mercy of global investors The third highlight of Subramanian’s speech was his heavy criticism of the monetary policy committee (MPC) and the RBI for ignoring the growth concerns of the economy by holding the interest rates for too long Subramanian asked whether the analyst community highlighted that we have over-achieved on inflation well in advance of scheduled targets and core inflation has been declining steadily over the last 7 months and is on target to achieve the medium term inflation target—factors that should ideally favour a rate cut “In sum have they highlighted that inflation is under control and activity may be weakening calling for all the fiscal and monetary policy support
