Rural demand slips further, Ranjan Gogoi’s legacy, Vodafone tariffs to rise

All signs point towards the fact that consumption in rural households, which slumped to a four-decade low between July 2017-June 2018, has only worsened since the beginning of 2019-2020. On this episode, P Vaidyanathan Iyer, who has been tracking the political economy for over two decades, joins us to explain what the signs of this rural slowdown are, what they indicate about how long this economic slump will continue and what this means about the state of poverty in India. Next, following the retirement of the 46th Chief Justice of India, Ranjan Gogoi on 17th November, Apurva Vishwanath details the legacy he leaves behind and how it affects how we perceive the Supreme Court. Last, why Vodafone Idea’s plan to raise tariffs is a part of much larger telecom crisis.
