the next global slowdown?

(Illustration by NILANJAN DAS) The simmering trade tensions between the US and China have escalated into a full-blown war. It started after the US more than doubled tariffs on Chinese imports, with the latter retaliating by announcing new tariffs on American goods starting June 1. The trade war has shaken up stock markets worldwide, and with no signs of a de-escalation, market pundits are forecasting a global slowdown and even a recession if the impasse continues. Indian stocks have been under pressure, with the benchmark Sensex falling 2,000 points in nine days up to May 13.On May 10, the US carried out its threat of hiking tariffs on $200 billion worth of Chinese goods (from the 10 per cent imposed earlier) to 25 per cent.

As a party, the DMK is firm in its demands for greater autonomy and an…

Union minister for road transport and highways NITIN GADKARI made this scarcely believable vow to the assembled press in Delhi last week, as the city choked again on dust and fumes. Delhi is one of the world’s most polluted cities; indeed, 14 of the 15 most polluted cities in the world are Indian, strung largely across the north. Gadkari claims the construction of expressways, under his watch, to divert traffic around Delhi has reduced pollution in the city by 32 per cent. He was silent on what kind of policy redesign might turn his promise into results. “Our government has done 100 per cent corruption-free, transparent, time-bound, result-oriented and quality work and that is why Delhi will be free of air and water pollution in the next three…
