|CBTD will scare away investment if it is allowed to pursue witch-hunts on businesses|
The month of November was marked by high-level inter-governmental summits and meeting. Most crucial meeting was held between the member nations’ of World Trade Organisation (WTO), who have agreed to adopt the decisions related to public stockholding for food security purposes, the Trade Facilitation Agreement and the post-Bali work. At regional level, the 18th Summit of the South Asian Association for Regional Cooperation (SAARC) was held in Nepal wherein an important agreement was signed on energy cooperation.
The OECD in its Economic Outlook for November 2014 highlighted that the prolonged stagnation in the euro area could drag down global growth and have knock-on effects on other economies through trade and financial links. It has projected global growth to reach 3.3% in 2014, 3.7% in 2015. In addition, OECD’s Composite Leading Indicator (CLI) said that India was the only major economy where the CLI pointed towards pick-up in growth momentum.
The slowing global growth was also reflected in the global manufacturing & services sector activity, as represented by Purchasing Managers’ Index (PMI), wherein the final quarter saw global economic growth to slow-down for the third consecutive month. As a result, global output growth also slowed to its weakest point since April 2014 in both the manufacturing and service sectors, reflecting weaker rates of increase in new business.
On price front, all major commodity prices exhibited a downward trend, with Crude Oil prices falling down to US$75 per barrel in addition to decline in prices of precious metals. This low commodity price environment has put inflation in both high-income and developing countries on a downward path. Unemployment scenario remained stable in most major economies with exception of Russia and Japan .
Policy rates remained predominantly unchanged in most of the major economies including Canada , India and China . While the Bank of Japan (BoJ), unexpectedly eased policy with a significant increase in its bond purchase program.

David Cameron’s bid to renegotiate Britain’s relationship with the European Union will be dealt a blow on Thursday when the French president tells the Prime Minister he is “obsessed with his own problems”.Francois Hollande will block Mr Cameron’s request for a change to the EU treaty to include a new settlement for Britain in Europe, media reports.
Mr Hollande will tell the Prime Minister that he is opposed to amending the EU’s treaty on the grounds that change is not needed and might trigger a referendum in France.The French President will dismiss the British case for renegotiation as a product of Tory political disarray over the rise of Ukip, accusing Mr Cameron of being “obsessed with his own problems”. The warning will come at a meeting of the European Council summit in Brussels, where leaders will discuss sanctions on Russia and talks to improve the functioning of the eurozone next June.
“The price to keep Britain in Europe keeps getting higher and higher. It is now up to the UK to decide,” said a senior French government source.“We will not pay an extra price to keep the UK in the EU.”
European diplomats are expecting Mr Cameron to use the opportunity, if he wins British elections next May, to table demands for a “new settlement for Britain in Europe”.
Obama will sign new Russia sanctions bill passed by Congress, but does not yet intend to impose new sanctions, White House spokesman Josh Earnest said on Thursday. He added the US was ready to call off sanctions already imposed against Moscow if Russia stopped supporting insurgents in eastern Ukraine.
Britain’s oil industry is in a “crisis” and may be “close to collapse,” a senior oil industry expert has said, as the UK’s biggest oil and gas companies continue to cut staff and investment and the price of crude slumps.
Speaking to the BBC, Robin Allan, chairman of the independent explorers’ association Brindex, echoed warnings made by other figures in the oil industry in the past month, saying that no new projects in the North Sea would be profitable while oil is being traded at below $60 a barrel.
“It’s almost impossible to make money at these oil prices,” Allan said.
Meanwhile, insolvencies among UK oil and gas companies have trebled this year, with a further £55 billion worth of future oil projects facing cuts or outright cancelation, according to leading UK accountancy firm Moore Stephens.
However, some analysts believe a decline in oil prices may work in the UK’s favor, particularly in comparison to major oil-producing countries such as Russia and Saudi Arabia.
“In essence, an oil price fall acts like a tax cut for the economy, but a particularly favorable one in the sense that the burden of lost revenue is primarily borne by the major oil producers such as the OPEC member countries and Russia,” said John Hawksworth, chief economist for PriceWaterhouseCoopers (PwC).
“Of course, the UK is still a significant oil producer, but we are now a net oil importer, so there should be a net benefit to our economy as a whole, even if there as some losers in the UK oil and gas sector,” he said.
The combined effect produced by Western sanctions and low oil prices proves that there’s no place for Russia in the international financial system, believes British prime minister David Cameron, urging for more pressure on Moscow.
“We should stand up very firmly against the Russian aggression that’s taking place,”Cameron said before the Parliament on Wednesday.
The PM reminded that it’s the UK, which “led the way in Europe in making sure there were sanctions”imposed against Russia over its ‘annexation’ of Crimea in March and Moscow’s alleged involvement in the Ukrainian crisis.
“And what the combination of the lower oil price and the sanctions are showing that I think it isn’t possible for Russia to be part of the international financial system, but try and opt out of the rules-based international legal system,” Cameron said.
“We should keep up the pressure,” the head of the British government added, agreeing that “in this respect the interests of the United Kingdom and democracy do go together.”
The EU is expected to announce a new round of sanctions against Russia on Thursday, during the European Council’s meeting in Brussels. According to Reuters, the restrictive measures will forbid EU firms from investing in the Crimea and prohibit the trade of European oil and gas exploration technologies from the EU to the region.

‘Trajectories of Legal Knowledge:
India’s Forest Rights Act and translations between caste and class’
Dr. Anand Vaidya,
This paper follows the trajectories through which India’s 2006 Forest Rights Act arrived in two neighboring villages in a North Indian forest. The law was brought to the area by two different organizations, each with a distinct political history and constituency, and the two organizations read the Forest Rights Act to have different and even contradictory meanings. Through an analysis of these re-readings, the speaker locates the contests over the meaning of the Forest Rights Act within a longer history of Dalit liberatory struggles to transform the relationship between caste categories and property relations. Far from caste being, as some have claimed, an obstacle to a class-based politics, the speaker argues that in Indian states whose recent political history has been defined by caste-based conflicts over land, caste has emerged as the idiom through which property relations are contested and class idioms have, in turn, become idioms through which caste-based relations are contested. The Forest Rights Act, which reassigns property relations on the basis of legal caste categories, has been drawn on as a powerful tool to translate between caste and class, and in the process the meanings of both the law and caste itself have been transformed.
Dr. Anand Vaidya is the South Asian Studies Postdoctoral Fellow in the South Asia Institute at Harvard University, USA. He studies environmental politics and social movements in India. Dr. Vaidya’s dissertation is an ethnographic and historical study of India’s Forest Rights Act, a landmark 2006 law that recognizes the land rights of the country’s many landless forest dwellers. Studying the law together with the movements that were crucial in pushing for it—and which continue to be central in implementing it—he seeks to understand the many, and often contradictory, political projects that the law has enabled in relation to the political struggles that produced it. By studying contests over forested land on the terrain of a legal text, he seeks to bridge political ecology, political economy, and linguistic anthropology.
UN Report: Asia-Pacific disaster-related deaths rise three-fold in past decade
Bangkok (ESCAP News) — Asia and the Pacific remains the region with the highest number of natural disasters, according to the Statistical Yearbook for Asia and the Pacific 2014. During the period between 1994 and 2013, over 40% of the world’s reported natural disasters occurred in the region.
Published by the United Nations Economic and Social Commission for Asia and the Pacific (ESCAP), the annual statistics publication reports that disaster-induced deaths in the Asia-Pacific region rose more than three-fold between 1994-2003 and 2004-2013, largely due to a handful of extreme disasters.
Some 28 upper-middle-income and high-income economies accounted for 85.5% of the total economic damage from natural disasters between 2004 and 2013. However, in terms of GDP, low-income economies suffered more from natural disasters.
Among the Asia-Pacific subregions, South-East Asia, predominantly Indonesia and the Philippines, was hardest hit by natural disasters with the total report of 527 incidences and 354,293 deaths between 2004 and 2013. During the same period, the number of natural disasters occurring in China alone (285 incidences) was more than twice as high as that in the whole North and Central Asia (116 incidences), part of the largest subregion in Asia and
the Pacific in terms of the total area covered.
The Statistical Yearbook also noted that the region continues to drive the global economic recovery, but its growth rate still remains below its pre-crisis level — that is to say, 3.9% during the period between 2008 and 2012, compared with 5.2% during the period between 2001 and 2007. And not all are benefiting from economic growth.
Although one billion people escaped extreme poverty since 1990 in Asia and the Pacific and the prevalence of undernourishment has also decreased from 22% to 13%, over 700 million people in the region still remain in extreme poverty, and Asia and the Pacific accounts for more than 60% of the world’s hungry people. 933 million people are living on between $1.25 and $2 a day, making them economically insecure or vulnerable to poverty. A small shock to their lives due to such factors as personal mishaps or economic crises
could push these people into abject poverty (below the $1.25-a-day line). Inequality has also risen in nearly half the countries in the region for which data are available.
Speaking at the launch, ESCAP Deputy Executive Secretary, Mr. Shun-ichi Murata highlighted the bigger picture for data and statistics in the post-2015 sustainable development agenda.
“The proposed 17 goals with 169 targets of the framework cover a broad range of goals and targets of sustainable development, raising demands for data for the purpose of monitoring,” he said. “At the same time, there has been an emphasis on the importance of establishing a rigorous monitoring and accountability system. In that context, statistics will be of critical
importance to support accountability and monitoring of the SDGs.”
About the Yearbook
The Statistical Yearbook for Asia and the Pacific presents concise analyses highlighting major achievements and challenges for the 58 regional ESCAP member States and the five subregions in promoting economic prosperity, social inclusion and environmental sustainability.
The Yearbook is accompanied by a series of online products, including country fact sheets, a database containing over 600 indicators and data visualization options.

Greetings of the Day!
Hope this mail finds you and your family in good health.
This is the month of December and the month of Gita Jayanti – The time when Krishna spoke Bhagavat Gita to Arjuna.
ISKCON – Delhi Temple, On the occasion of Gita Jayanti month would like to distribute “Srimad Bhagwad Gita – As it Is” in your company. This is a Spiritual book which tells “How a person can attain happiness, peace and success in his/her life” and guides all humanity on the path of truth. It has been published in more than Eighty languages all over the world , including French, German,Spanish, Dutch, Portuguese, Italian, Swedish,Russian, Polish, Czech, Slovak, Latvian, Macedonian, Hungarian, Georgian,Croatian,Chinese, Japanese, Arabic, Hebrew, Persian, Hindi, Bengali, Gujarati, Kannada,Malayalam, Oriya, Tamil, and Telugu.
In this month we also do “GITA DAAN”, where people sponsor certain no of Bhagavat Gitas and ISKCON distributes those Bhagavat Gitas to the poor people (who are genuinely interested ) in villages.
On the occasion of Gita Jayanti on 2nd December 2014, you can distribute these books to Convergys Clients and Employees to reinforce relations. Sponsorship can also be made for people who cannot afford- in prisons, hospitals and schools. Donations for distributing scriptures to ISKCON are tax exempt under section 193.
Sir as we all are already involved in some kind of charity, it is very beneficial to see what Lord Krishna himself recommends about charity in Bhagwad Gita:
BG 17.20 — “Charity given out of duty, without expectation of return, at the proper time and place, and to a worthy person is considered to be in the mode of goodness.” The most widespread problems which make people suffer are greed/lust/envy/wrath/sloth- resulting in widespread anxiety, depression, stress and hypertension. These diseases can only be cured through spiritual learning. By distributing the books with personal note from MasterTrust we can follow instructions in this verse as it is.
BG 17.21 — “But charity performed with the expectation of some return, or with a desire for fruitive results, or in a grudging mood is said to be charity in the mode of passion.” Unfortunately a common form of Charity- donations to NGOs/Associations solely for public relations is not recommended by Lord Krishna.
BG 17.22 — And charity performed at an impure place, at an improper time, to unworthy persons, or without proper attention and respect is said to be in the mode of ignorance.” Unfortunately the most common form of Charity- offering food via a servant to slum dwellers is not recommended by Lord Krishna. This is because it does not alleviates them from distinctive human sins- intoxication, gambling, meat eating and illicit sex.
Request you to also please help us in this cause by sponsoring Bhagavat Gita’s. By doing so it is definite that you and your family will get the mercy of Krishna and also of Srila Prabhupad (Founder of ISKCON and pure devotee of Krishna)
