Decoding the latest GDP figures and what can save the Indian economy

On Friday, the GDP figures for Quarter 2 were released. At 4.5% India’s GDP growth continues to be the lowest it’s been in more than 6 years, with the previous low recorded at 4.3 per cent in March 2013. The economic slowdown continues and the government needs to find smarter to tackle it. On this episode, Udit Misra who writes on the economy for the Indian Express, and Ishan Bakshi, who is part of the editorial team, join me to discuss how government spendings are propping up our economy, why boosting demand, not supply, is the need of the hour and how that goal can be achieved.
