.

Week 2: How India got its funk

The funk referred to in the title of the article was the downturn in India’s market when it should have been sailing high.  Inflation and lack of economic reforms were the major players in the funk.  One surprising fact is “only 3% of Indians pay income tax”.  How does the government operate when a small fraction of the population doesn’t contribute to the overall health?  Debt keeps piling up for India and exports are not growing.  Car and motorcycle sales have slumped.  The article also references that private companies are simply not brining business into the country as they were previously.  Which came as a surprise to me because it seems every other day I read about another company opening a branch in India. The real estate market would be a natural sector to rise up if more companies brought business into the country.  It appears that their government needs to take a look at international policies
