Investment Intricacies and Fiscal Fuzz

A Rapid Assessment of National Budget 2013-14 

INVESTMENT INTRICACIES AND FISCAL FUZZ-2013-14

The current budget is tabled in the backdrop of three major challenges: economic growth is decelerating due to stagnant investment and productivity growth, fiscal deficit is crowding out investment while not augmenting multiplier effect by removing supply side bottlenecks, and social sector spending is increasing but at a decreasing rate. This rapid assessment primarily reviews the policy measures introduced for FY 2013-14 to ascertain whether these could stimulate economic recovery to create more jobs, reduce poverty and lessen inequality. This also examines the feasibility of budgetary targets and probes into any possible sources of tensions between fiscal and monetary policies.
