the beginning of the end of the oil era; the compatibility of our inflexible system of bureaucratic governance with the pressures of a complex connected and changing world and the fragility of corporate reputations Politicians have always played fast and loose with the truth As such the “facticide” that marked the campaign for Brexit and Donald Trump’s march to the White House should not have come as a complete surprise But it did This was in part because of the gall with which the falsehoods were uttered and in part because they received global attention through the internet and social media In fact so much so that the Oxford Dictionary declared the adjective “post-truth” as its word of the year for 2016 I am no political scientist but as the political unthinkable got pushed into the mainstream the thought that crossed my mind was whether the existing electoral structures and systems for manifesting public opinion were in fact democratic To be precise if the American system of primaries and electoral college voting for the president; the UK and Indian “first past the post system” for elections to Parliament or the German system of proportional representation grounded as each are on the bedrocks of nationalism and political sovereignty were in sync with the imperatives of a connected economic and social order These systems had built in checks and balances to prevent the rise of precisely the demagogues and demagoguery that surfaced in 2016 Two questions need to be asked One whether these electoral processes push the voter into a Faustian corner wherein whilst it offers them the periodic opportunity to challenge the establishment it limits their choices by straitjacketing this challenge into conduits managed and controlled by the establishment Two in consequence is it not time for a root and branch review to contemporise the existing panoply of liberal democratic processes Just over a hundred years ago in 1911 Winston Churchill as the first Lord of the UK Admiralty heralded the oil age by ordering the UK Navy to use oil and not coal as bunker fuel for their ships Coal continued to be an important energy source but thenceforth oil’s share in the energy basket rose inexorably Today oil is the dominant fuel for transport and prima facie there is no Churchillian reason for assuming this situation will change in the near to mid-term There is no commercially viable substitute for oil as a transportation fuel and the economics of electric vehicles is not competitive But Moore’s law and “uberisation” might change all this Moore’s law posits that computing power will double every 18-24 months And “uberisation” is altering the current owner-operator model of mobility These two forces combined could redefine the shape of the transportation sector Amory Lovins director of the Rocky Mountain Institute in the US uses an evocative acronym to depict the emergent change The sector he says will evolve from PIGS to SEALS: The current model based on personalised internal combustion gasoline based and steel encased vehicles will shift to one based on shared electric autonomous (that is driverless) and lightweight vehicles Until 2016 all conversation about a commercially competitive and scalable alternative to gasoline and the internal combustion engine were caveated by the constraints of costs limitations of battery storage (and hence driving range) and recharging infrastructure Last year the conversations began to acquire a ring of commercial conviction An increasing number of people — not just entrepreneurs like Elon Musk (Tesla) or automotive companies like Mercedes General Motors and Toyota but also governments — bet on Moore’s law and predicted that these caveats would sooner than later be removed by the advancement of technology Given that transport accounts for 60 per cent of oil demand a world of SEALS would effectively seal this commodities future I wonder whether in hindsight 2016 will be remembered as the inflection year when oil entered its period of decline The jury is still out on the precise economic ramifications of demonetisation but I am sure that even the PM will accept that it has been poorly implemented One can adduce many extenuating explanations of which the strongest argument would be that the civil servants responsible for implementation were not given sufficient notice But these explanations leave two fundamental questions unanswered Is our steel-encased rigid and hierarchical bureaucracy staffed as it is in the main by “gifted amateurs” knowledgeable enough to help their political masters navigate the shoals of a complex competitive connected and technocratic world Do they have the security of institutional safeguards to offer objective advice To be specific did whoever was consulted by the PM about demonetisation have detailed understanding about our banking and digital infrastructure And if so did they feel secure enough to share this information with the PM warts and all I do not have an answer to these questions but I will say that the manner in which this decision has been implemented highlights the importance of institutionalising the lateral entry of experts into the upper echelons of our economic and technical ministries a la the US system The Tata Group has for decades sat on the perch of corporate governance It is not a position the group inherited It earned that position slowly but convincingly Today the group is embroiled in a conflict that has severely eroded its market capitalisation and more important its reputation Two issues deserve reflection One the importance of individuals They can both make or mar institutions And two the fragility of reputation For whilst it always arrives on foot it can leave in a Ferrari The writer is chairman Brookings India and senior fellow Brookings Institution For all the latest Opinion News download Indian Express App More Top News she twisted his arm and started banging on the door after which the driver stopped misbehaving and drove to her house located in BTM Layout.
