Disintermediation: the silent tsunami

Rebalancing the financial architecture of India evenly between banks and mutual funds will be healthy for the economy

Make in India has fallen far short of expectations on the job front

Context:

Despite rising costs in China, India has made little headway into becoming a global manufacturing alternative, particularly at the low end that generates the most jobs. India has become a global small-car hub over the last couple of decades, but this relatively high-end segment is not a massive job-creator.
