charges in the CAG report could be heard in complete silence That would see an effective Parliament What has happened again and again is a dysfunctional Parliamentwhich fails to do the job for which

power some day and then it will need a disrupted Parliament just as much as the Congress now needs it Any partywhich hopes to be in powerwants a dysfunctional Parliament Over the yearsthe Indian system has converted the Westminster Parliamentary system into a caricature of itself British Parliament acts to check the executive as much from its own backbench members as from the Opposition Debates take on a forensic quality and the government is forced to change policy No British Prime Minister has resigned in the last sixty-seven years because of a debate in Parliament but Margaret Thatcherwho never recovered from the debate about Scott Report on arms sale to Arab rulers Indian Parliamentary system has over the years shunned open constructive debate about serious issues Most things get decided in Standing Committees Worse stillmajor decisions are taken at all party meetings and brought to Parliament pre-packaged as is about to be the case with the impending Constitutional Amendment to introduce reverse discrimination in promotions for SC/ST This has happened before when the percentage reservations were suddenly raised because Arjun Singh wanted it Only the Supreme Court guards the Constitution while Parliament eagerly subverts it by amendmentsThe insidious thing about all party conclaves off the floor of the House is that the leaders strike a deal which the backbenchers are forced to vote forthanks to the anti-defection legislation If anyone wants to reduce corruption in Indian politicsthe target should be the Tenth Schedulewhich has stifled real dissent Most recently the coalition government in UK was forced to abandon the House of Lords Reform Bill because of opposition from its own backbenchers It may be a good or bad thing but it showed that backbenchers may have stronger views than their leaders wish to impose on them If that were possible in Lok SabhaI bet the OBC based parties would put a stop to the proposed amendment which seeks to nullify a Supreme Court judgment about discrimination in promotions for SC/ST It is in this sense that there is collusion in the Indian political system beneath the faade of conflict Parliament fails to do its job and lets the executive run rampant Nowhoweverdue to its own internal compulsionsthe UPA government is as paralysed as the Lok Sabha is The next coalition is unlikely to be stronger

Pranab Mukherjee should use his waking hours to signal bold reforms Until a few years ago no one really thought that governments could go bust But the deepening sovereign debt crises of Europe have now persuaded us that governments can go bust if their debt levels cross a certain danger mark What is that danger mark remains a matter of research by economists around the world Some studies have concluded that when the governments total debt crosses 85 to 90 per cent of the GDP then growth begins to taper off on a more permanent basis Most eurozone economies are past that danger level for some time now HistoricallyJapan got into a long-term low growth trap after its government debt had exceeded 90 per cent of GDP in the mid-1990s The USduring its high-growth period in the 1980s and 1990shad a reasonably moderate public debt level of below 40 per cent of GDP Howeverin recent yearsthe US too has crossed the danger mark and its debt is now nearly 100 per cent of its GDP of about $15 trillion Most economists agree that the US too may have entered a long-term low-growth trap It is against this backdrop that high government borrowings and its possible negative impact on growth have become a subject of intense discussion in India as well The Indian governments debt to GDP ratio is 70 per cent but could deteriorate to the danger mark rapidly if the politics of entitlement becomes more widespread without other growth-oriented reforms being pursued Finance Minister Pranab Mukherjee has said he has sleepless nights when he looks at all the subsidy commitments made by the government in recent times Many of these entitlements are politically difficult to withdraw The combined fiscal deficit of the Centre and states together stands at about 85 per cent of GDP nowup from less than 5 per cent in 2007-08 Consequentlyif you ask any economistbusinessman or global investor as to what is the single biggest issue the forthcoming budget must addressthe answer will be runaway borrowings by the government Unfortunatelythe history of public finance management suggests fiscal deficit (government borrowing) remains a less discussed subject during boom periods when consistently high growth reduces government borrowings as a ratio of GDP Fiscal deficit starts causing worry in relatively low-growth periods when government borrowings rise as a proportion of GDPas is happening now For instanceif one looks at the start of the economic liberalisation 20 years agothe Centres gross borrowing was at an unprecedented 64 per cent of GDP in 1990-91 when the economy was gripped by an external payment crisis and GDP growth was zero Structural economic reforms followed and the next six years saw average fiscal deficit at around 4 to 45 per cent of GDP Needles to saythis period was also marked by consistently higher GDP growth of 65 to 7 per cent So whenever there is a dose of economic reformsfiscal deficit tapers off as one experiences some years of reasonably good GDP growth Low levels of annual borrowing after a period of good growth also allows the government enough fiscal headroom to administer counter-cyclical growth stimulus when there is an economic downturn caused by local or global factors India could administer counter-cyclical stimulus in 1998 after the Asian financial crises took many economies down because the government had a lot of fiscal headroomhaving brought the fiscal deficit down to 4 per cent of GDP in 1997 The fiscal deficit gradually climbed back to 6 per cent of GDP in the five years after 1997 as most Asian economiesincluding Indiastruggled to recover Some more structural reforms followed during this recovery period of 1998 to 2003 So while the fiscal deficit did climb back to a high of 6 per cent of GDP by 2002the stage had been set for the next phase of growth because of reforms carried out in the previous four years Thiscoupled with the supply of global liquidity from the Westkicked off the next big boom phase from 2003 to 2008 when GDP grew on average at 85 per cent And sure enoughthe old fiscal cycle repeated itself At the end of this boom phasethe fiscal deficit was down to a low of 25 per cent of GDP in 2007-08 Again enough headroom was created to administer the next round of fiscal stimulus as the world was to reel from the worst economic crisis post the Great Depression And expectedlythe UPA administered a strong dose of fiscal stimulus in the two years after the 2008 global economic crisis Howeverthe UPA faltered badly on one count During previous down-cycle episodesthere was fiscal expansion invariably accompanied by a new dose of reforms Howeverthis time roundfiscal headroom was used but was not accompanied by any fresh thinking on reforms The UPA muddled through the critical period of 2008-09 to 2011-12The fiscal deficit has climbed back to about 58 per cent of GDP at presentespecially if one takes into account the big revenue slippageshigher oil subsidies and other hidden expenditure commitments this fiscal GDP growth has also slipped back to 69 per cent this fiscal after recovering to over 8 per cent in 2010-11 India has actually witnessed a kind of double-dip in growth deceleration because the advanced GDP estimate of 69 per cent for 2011-12 is roughly the same as the 68 per cent GDP that India registered just after the 2008 global economic crisis Mukherjees job becomes tougher because he has spent much of the fiscal ammunition in reviving growth after the 2008 global economic crisis but the growth rate is back where it was in 2008-09 Now there is no fiscal headroom left either This is the kind of situation that no finance minister would want to grapple with With the fiscal headroom virtually exhausted the only other option Mukherjee is left with is to deliver a strong dose of growth-enhancing reformssomething that was done during all previous down-cycle episodes Instead of spending sleepless nightsMukherjee may use his waking hours to signal some bold reforms over the next three years The instruments are all there in his bagready to be used Time-bound implementation of Goods and Services Tax (GST) and Direct Tax Code (DTC) would be half the job done There cant be a bigger fiscal upside than bringing into the tax net large parts of the black economy through the GST mechanism This will also make the oppositionwhich has been harping on black moneyhappy The forthcoming budget will also test the capacity of Prime Minister Manmohan Singh to reinvent himself as an economist and a man of ideas [email protected] For all the
