- Brazil, some argue, was blessed in disguise when it was tested with perennial economic crisis throughout the 1990s and global downturn following the September 11 terrorist attacks. The economy not only emerged more resilient, but also grew self-sustainable. 2008 Statistics tell the whole story – imports equal to 9% of the Brazilian GDP and exports about 12%. Just when economists started believing that this country is decoupled from the developments in the US economy, the US financial crisis (2008) struck Brazil off-guard. The global credit dried up, unemployment increased, international investor confidence dwindled and above all, Brazilian real shrunk against the US dollar. Brazilian companies have bet huge amounts on currency derivatives, since 2003, with the assumption that the real would strengthen against the US dollar. What should companies do firstly to avoid an impending bankruptcy and stay afloat in the medium term? What should be government's response?
- With its promise to weed out corruption from public life, Arvind Kejriwal’s Aam Aadmi Party (AAP, Common Man Party) captured the imagination of millions of Indians. So much so that his one-year-old party was catapulted to power after the December 2013 elections in the state of Delhi (India). With a well worked out strategy which included a promise to introduce a bill which made everyone in the government including the prime minister accountable, Kejriwal’s AAP party projected itself as an alternative to the existing political parties which were known for deep-rooted corruption. Clearly analyze the political system and issues plaguing the current political system in the developing world.
