    I wrote last week about the results of the research that household finance economist Renuka Sane and I did, which showed how banks mis-sell third-party financial products in India. You can read the column at: http://bit.ly/2aYhbvk and hear a podcast in which Mint editor R Sukumar talks about the research at: http:// bit.ly/2bQPHNh. I received a lot of emails from people who wrote in with their individual stories on bank mis-selling. Many of them have stories that follow our findings to the letter. The story is this: your bank knows how much money sits in your account and will contact you when you go to make a fixed deposit (or a public provi­dent fund or a locker or a loan) to hard-sell a life insurance policy.

  • Revisiting inflation targeting

    The debate on inflation tar­geting has come to the fore once again as Raghuram Rajan, in a statement, and D Subbarao, in his memoirs, have expressed compel­ling views on this issue. The point is relevant because the perceived con­flict between the Reserve Bank of In­dia and the finance ministry over the years has centred on it. The RBI has generally been hawkish about inflation while the government has been arguing for lower rates from the point of view of growth. How do we view this debate?

    Captain Changed, Boat Unrocked

With Pa-tel now stepping up to Raghuram Rajan's plate, one can be more or less assured that the government has avoided rocking the boat even as it changes its captain. This is mature thinking and signals continuity But Patel's ap­pointment goes one step further. What we now have is a good economist with a mastery of finance, perfect ingre­dients for an RBI chief to have at a time when the real challenge is finding financial stability in a fast-integrat­ing global scenario.
