NewsWritten by Surjit S Bhalla | Updated: October 8 2016 12:37 am The MPC is a new and progressive institution(Source: C R Sasikumar_ Top News The recent decision by the Monetary Policy Committee (MPC) to lower the repo rate by 25 bps to 625 per cent has been met with criticism and scepticism Some analysts have gone as far as to assert that there has been faulty judgment This criticism and commentary is all part of a healthy democratic system Also fair is that some critics (like myself) find fault with the criticism of the critics and even find it unfair As it happens I also think that the RBI-MPC is unnecessarily using some very faulty tools Just to put my cards on the table I believe that the MPC and RBI Governor Urjit Patel have reached the best decision that was possible with the data they had Historically except for occasional lapses the RBI has been a data dependent institution and it is encouraging to see that the tradition is being strongly reinforced by the MPC Questioning of the MPC decision has proceeded along the following lines: First and most importantly that the inflation rate is too high to warrant a rate cut The last four year-on-year headline inflation numbers have been as follows: 55 (April 2016) 58 61 and 51 per cent (August 2016) The target of the RBI is five per cent for March 2017 So how can the MPC cut rates now and that also with a unanimous vote Surely and unlike Raghuram Rajan the MPC is giving in to political pressure (Ministry of Finance) and major corporates (who always want interest rates to be cut) Further the MPC is emphasising growth over inflation that is they have all turned doves It is likely that the unfortunate manner in which Rajan was not reappointed is colouring perceptions and interpretations of many commentators For the fact remains that rather than being different than Rajan the MPC (and Patel and RBI) are doing what Rajan would have done How do we know that We know that from the second criticism by the “experts” A popular conclusion of the experts is that the RBI has softened because it has reduced the real policy rate range from 15-2 per cent to 125 percent that is the RBI was now targeting a 125 percentage points gap between the repo rate and CPI inflation This was articulated by MPC RBI member Michael Patra in the press conference following the MPC decision So the experts are right in stating that the real policy rate is now 125 per cent But the experts are very wrong in deducing that this is a change in policy Look at the following headline after the June policy meeting of the RBI under Rajan: “Will have room to cut rates if inflation stays at 5 per cent” (IE June 9) The article goes on to quote Rajan: “If we get confident of achieving five per cent inflation target by March 2017 then we will get more space to cut” What the RBI and MPC did on October 4 was a continuation of the RBI policy There has been enough data on food prices especially of pulses (and fruits and vegetables) to suggest that the next six-month course of such prices is at best stable at current levels and likely to be lower because of the influence of good weather and increased acreage and prospects of higher yields for an “inflation-elastic” crop like pulses This assessment and forecast has no relationship with being dovish or looking at growth more than inflation or giving in to the demands of industrialists and/or the Ministry of Finance Indeed if the MPC members had not unanimously agreed to cut rates they would likely have had egg (and worse) on their faces next week when the CPI data for September is scheduled to be released — a figure around 43 per cent year-on-year headline inflation will not be entirely surprising The simple point is all of us are rightly expecting the MPC to be responsible — and when they do act responsibly by cutting rates in the face of considerable evidence let us not besmirch their honour or intelligence by attributing to them false motives But the MPC has room to improve A central feature of all inflation targeting regimes and all bankers and all economists is that the key to lowering inflation rates is the lowering of inflation expectations In the case of already low inflation the goal is to keep expectations stable And as we now know for some developed economies (Japan Europe) the key to successful monetary policy is to raise inflationary expectations In the first MPC-RBI policy statement one finds the following statement on inflationary expectations and how important and influential they are: “Households reacted to the recent hardening of food inflation adaptively and raised their inflation expectations in the September 2016 round of the Reserve Bank’s inflation expectations survey of households” Given the importance of inflationary expectations one would think and believe that central bankers would strive to make sure that they measure properly such expectations Or at least measure them to the best of their ability It is not clear that the RBI has ever fulfilled this mandate In January 2015 at the beginning of this rate-cut cycle the RBI cited the results of its most recent inflation expectation survey (RBI-IES December 2015) as supportive of a rate cut (25 bps from 8 to 775 per cent) This survey had shown a decline in one year forward expectations to 93 per cent from 135 per cent at the end of the previous quarter (September 2015) In my commentary on this rate cut (Indian Express “Why ignorance is not bliss” January 17 2015) I had this to say: “Since when was high expectation of inflation of nine per cent low enough to warrant a rate cut I fully agree that interest rates should be cut — but not because a junk RBI survey shows a decline in inflation expectations to a high nine per cent level Better to junk junk than to offer it as an explanation — it makes all of us look bad” One and a half years later and with an MPC in place there is no change in this one bad habit of the RBI — the bad habit of using a junk survey a junk result to justify its otherwise very sound reasoning Don’t take my word or believe me but do peruse the chart There are two lines in the chart — actual year-on-year CPI inflation for each quarter and the year ago forward expectation for the same quarter For example at the time Rajan cited the junk survey in January 2015 year-on-year inflation in 2014Q4 was 41 per cent The forecast of the junk survey for this same quarter was 135 per cent Note also that there is no learning by doing on the part of the survey respondents As inflation has declined the forecast error (gap between forecast and actual) has widened and to a near double-digit magnitude It is intellectually embarrassing to even report these data let alone use it The MPC is a new and progressive institution The reasoning behind the vote and the vote of each MPC member will be made public 14 days after each meeting We already know that it was a unanimous vote to cut Let us
