#Mersal Economics for the stupid stars

#Mersal (whatever language that is), is a Tamil movie in which ‘sound’ economic principles have been mouthed. A newbie revolutionary – read an ageing actor – has found it fit to compare the GST rates in India and Singapore. He has also found, in his profound wisdom, that the hospitals provide free service in Singapore (Father, forgive them, for they know not what they say).

A nation’s income is through taxes. Salaried classes in India can’t cheat on their taxes as the tax component is deducted from their salaries. However, the entrepreneurs, consultants and independent workers, who are in the tax bracket, don’t have a standard tax deduction mechanism. This class tends to cheat, the main culprits being the real estate operators, rich farmers, independent professionals such as Lawyers , Chartered Accountants, Doctors, movie producers, movie actors and financiers. It is normal practice for this group to demand payment by cash for services delivered.

Now that we are in comparison mode, let us do it in full.

Comparison with OECD Countries:(ref: thehansindia.com)

  1. India’s tax to GDP increased from 10.4% in 1965 to 16.6% in 2015-16, the corresponding tax-to-GDP ratio of OECD countries increased from 21% in 1965 to 33% in 2015.
  2. Even compared to OECD nations with lower GDP (Korea, Turkey, Mexico, Chile, Portugal, Greece, Slovenia and Poland) India’s is still lower at 16.6% versus average of 24% of these nations.
  3. Among the G-20 Countries, India had the third lowest tax-base, just above Mexico and Indonesia.
  4. A high tax-to-GDP ratio is also a common feature of countries with high level of social security measures such as Belgium, Denmark etc.
  5. The level of tax compliance in most advanced countries is very high, as high as 90%.

The advanced countries ( in this case Singapore, Denmark) have severe penalties for tax avoidance and evasion. It is not possible to evade tax, especially personal income tax, in Singapore. But, if personal income tax increases, then there would be lesser incentive to earn more. This could cause productivity loss and income generation by individuals and corporates. Hence the Singapore government reduced the personal income tax from 40% to 15%. However, to make good the loss, the govt introduced the GST – Goods and Service Tax. This was a tax at the point of consumption and not at the point of earning.

Taxes

India’s income tax contribution to GDP is very less. This, coupled with an increased fiscal deficit (the difference between country’s revenues and expenditure) makes the government spend less on, say,  health care or education.

On 25-July-2017, Deccan Chronicle published  a report that the number of India’s tax payers has increased – from 4 crore to 6.26 crore. Total population is 120 crores. Just 5.2% pay income tax.

So, people either pay taxes and enjoy benefits in, say, Singapore, or don’t pay taxes yet complain about lack of services – like movie actor Vijay – in India.

Now that this ‘intellectual’ has sought to compare, let us start with other parameters based on which comparison can be made. I have compiled most of these from from world bank data. Hence the data would not be fudged – like the income tax returns of movie actors.

Income Tax in Singapore

 

Property Tax in Singapore

GST in Singapore

SG GST 2016.jpg

For a population of around 5 million and a GDP of USD 221 Bn, GST alone constitutes S$ 11.1 Bn. The revenue, not realized as income tax, is realized as a consumption tax. As there cannot be any evasion at the point of consumption, the GST in Singapore is serving its purpose and contributing towards nation building.

Health Expenditure ( % of GDP)

Percapita Health Expenditure (USD)

Let us take this case. GST collection is S$ 11.1 Bn which is approximately US$ 8.2 Bn. Let us extrapolate Singapore’s per capita health care spending as US$ 3000. For her 3.5 million citizens, Singapore would have spent US$ 10.5 Bn only. Thus GST alone would have helped offset the health expenditure for her citizens ( assuming health care is free, while it is not). The remaining 1.5 million people in Singapore are either Permanent Residents or foreigners. There is a differential medical cost for these two categories.

So, when a country introduces a tax regime, it is for a purpose – to serve its citizens.

Military Expenditure as % of GDP

Mil Exp.jpg

A casual look at the percentage spend on military would reveal many facts. Considering the land areas of the two countries, doesn’t this spend disparity strike the eye? Why does India need to spend less or Singapore spend more? Yes, it is true that both the democracies are surrounded by not-so-friendly neighbours. But does that justify Singapore’s spend?

Well, it does. Military spend, however high it might be, is one of technology acquisition. And that translates directly into military superiority. And Singapore needs this military superiority. Not that there is going to be an invasion in the near future, but that a nation should be confident of its military prowess. With a minuscule population, as a nation, Singapore needs to maintain its technical superiority. And that is financed by her taxes, GST being one.

When that is applied to India, ‘intellectuals’ begin their boil. Why?

Armed forces personnel

Armed forces need to be paid. From where does a nation get to pay them, if not for the taxes that she imposes on her citizens? India’s border with Pakistan alone is 2900 KM. To stop infiltration by terrorists, India has built 150,000 flood lights mounted on 50,000 poles. What could be the cost incurred for just the maintenance of these lights? How about the border with China, Myanmar, Nepal and Bangladesh? Any guesses ?

Banks NPA to Total Gross Loans (%)

NPA Banks.jpg

Source: Here

Banks, predominantly state owned in India, have a higher NPA. Various factors such as mismanagement, interference by political forces, subsidy culture, frequent directions to waive loans off for political gains and the like have contributed to this NPA. Not that Singapore banks don’t have NPA. They do. But the banks are professionally managed, and with little political interference, they run as corporate companies that work for a profit while at the same time acting as an extended arm of the state in financing national growth. (Before I forget – How many movie producers and actors are yet to service their loans from state owned banks in India?)

Labour Participation Rate

The proportion of the population ages 15 and older that is economically active: all people who supply labor for the production of goods and services.

Labour Participation Rate.jpg

44% of Singapore residents are economically active while, with such a huge population, less than 25% in India is so.

GDP per Person Employed

GDP per person employed.jpg

The contribution to GDP of each employed person in both Singapore and India paints a clear picture on the disparity of the situation.  On the one hand the non-tax paying groups, hoarders, anti-nationals, foreign funded NGOs that seek to create disturbance combine together to pull the nation down, while on the other, the tax paying salaried class has to bear the burden of thefts, freebies and dole-outs in India.  In this situation, how would the government get the resources necessary to ‘build hospitals instead of temples’ as the actor says?

Share of women employed in non-agricultural sector

Women in non-agri sector.jpg

Source: Here

Who stopped the Indian governments of the past from utilizing the women work force from contributing to nation building? Who was in power for around 60 years after independence? ‘Intellectuals’ should ask this question before questioning GST and advising on Hospitals.

Proportion of seats held by women in Parliament

Women proportion in parliament.jpg

Source: Here

For all tall talk for the last 70 years, dynastic rule, prejudices and discrimination have ensured that women don’t have adequate representation in parliament. Only when women take to politics in large numbers would some balance prevail in the skewed Indian political scheme. And no additional marks for guessing who didn’t promote more women in politics (Clue: Who ruled the country for 60 years?)

Coming to wealth generation for the country: Singapore has two Sovereign Wealth Funds (Temasek Holdings and GIC). These companies invest Singapore citizen’s surplus CPF contribution and other surplus in overseas markets. Eg: Temasek has holdings in SingTel while the latter has a major stake in India’s Air Tel. When Air Tel needs money to expand in, say Africa, DBS Bank, another Singapore bank with connections to Temasek, could lend money. When Air Tel makes money, SingTel smiles its way to the bank while DBS Bank also smiles, which in turn benefits Temasek and in turn, Singapore. And she spends the money on her citizens -health care, road, rail, airport modernization et al. (Recently Temasek has sold its stake in Air Tel to SingTel).

Temasek to contribute to Singapore’s kitty.

Temasek GLobal Spread

It is the combination of state capitalism, better tax realization, professional management of government companies and a corruption free government that has resulted in better facilities for Singapore citizens. Anything else would have resulted in disaster.

India cannot have a sovereign wealth fund, for there is no surplus and there is always a deficit in her budget. And the reasons are as above. Leave alone overseas investments. A mere mention of LIC money getting invested in the domestic stock market leads to so much hue and cry in the Indian media. So forget sovereign wealth funds and overseas investments.

Note to Actor Vijay & his dialogue writer(s):

Before I close, a point to ponder. I hear you have mentioned about building temples instead of hospitals. Well, in Tamil Nadu, the government doesn’t build temples. It destroys them under a new name – HR & CE. Again, you can’t compare with what happens in Singapore. The Hindu Endowments Board, constituted by the Singapore government, owns properties, takes rent and administers temples in Singapore from the funds accrued. And it maintains the temples. Underline the word ‘maintains’. Here is a pointer from a government gazette notification.

Singapore is a country run like a company for the genuine betterment of her citizens. India has been run as  a charity for 70 years, for the betterment of the different dynasties and their sycophants. Now, when a person tries to correct this anomaly, it would definitely be a pain for the history-sheeters, rent seekers, vagabonds, money launderers and communists. Teething pain, you see.

So, Actor Vijay – Before you sign up for the next Coca-Cola ad (after fighting for ‘water conservation’) or begin to mouth dialogues against taxation, read. Or am I asking for the moon?

Clinton Cash – a review

61r6ec0lc4l-_ac_us327_fmwebp_ql65_The book ‘Clinton Cash’ talks about the not-so-graceful goings on in former President Bill Clinton’s foundation. The author  Peter Schweizer paints a vivid picture of the following :

  1. Why the US State Department opposes a matter
  2. Why Hillary Clinton, as Secretary of State, opposes a matter
  3. How a large donation finds its way into the Clinton Foundation
  4. Why Bill Clinton gets to deliver talks worth a few hundred thousand dollars
  5. Why the State Department reverses its earlier stand
  6. How Hillary Clinton helps in this reversal
  7. How government contracts are awarded to the donor

The above steps repeat so many times that one begins to anticipate these when a new matter comes up.

The stand, donation, speech, stand-reversal, govt contracts sequence happens in the following:

  1. Haiti Earthquake relief
  2. Rwanda Dictator support
  3. Sudan
  4. India’s Nuclear Deal
  5. Russia getting to own US Uranium mines

The part on the Indian civilian nuclear deal is not dealt with the requisite detail that would be needed for such intensely important items. The piece ignores the nuclear proliferation by China, the clandestine nuclear acquisition by Pakistan and the role played by the republican president George Bush in cementing the Indo-US Civilian nuclear deal – this part gives the book a pro-republican tinge.

The book is a fast read for one who is interested in the decimation of the so-called left liberal school. I am one.

IIT / NIT admission – state board performance

This graph shows IIT / NIT admissions by education board for the year 2016-17.

https://public.tableau.com/profile/amaruvi.devanathan#!/vizhome/shared/7KHCSBNW8

It clearly shows that CBSE students outshine the state board students. Telangana, Rajasthan and Andhra Pradesh boards do while Tamil Nadu State Board doesn’t appear in the list. Probably TN board students who got admission were so minuscule that they didn’t figure in the data set.

Time the educators make a note of this. ( based on data from india vidya . com)

 

Choices – book review

Shiv Shankar Menon’s book ‘Choices’ details his experiences as a diplomat and as a foreign secretary of India. He talks about his experiences in Chinese diplomacy, the Sri Lankan LTTE end game and the parleys that took place when he was at the helm, the Indo-US Nuclear deal negotiations under the Manmohan Singh government and India’s reaction (or was it restraint?) during the Mumbai terror attack.

516tb1hvcyl-_sx331_bo1204203200_We are treated to instances of statesmanship displayed by former Prime Ministers Rajiv Gandhi, Narasimha Rao and Vajpayee. The section where Menon says that whenever he spoke to Vajpayee, even when the latter was in the opposition, the latter had asked just one question -‘Is this good for India?’ – left me in tears. What statesmen have ruled us!

The section on the Sri Lankan episode when Menon says that all Tamil political parties in Tamil Nadu were in agreement to the destruction of the LTTE exposes the double games played by the political parties in the state of Tamil Nadu.

There is a chapter devoted to why India opted for ‘No first use’ of nuclear weapons. What all aspects go into such a decision, the need for such an abdication and the deep calculations that are behind such a major policy are explained in detail.

Why India didn’t retaliate after the 26/11 Mumbai attacks is explained as well. 

A fast paced memoir that touches on an ex-diplomat’s major assignments, ‘Choices’ could have been better written with more details on Sri Lanka and China.

Read this book for a helicopter view of the ‘Whys’ of India’s major foreign policy matters of the last 50 years,

What did #demonetization achieve ?

As an individual, I see the following as the fallout of #demonetization. You won’t find anything economical here, but everything logical. 

Made the local counsellor reach out to my Dad to see if I could transfer some money from Singapore to his business’s current account in India. In turn he would give more than an equivalent from his cash pile. He promised an apartment in addition to more than the value of the money hat he asked me to send. I declined, anyway. 

Made the house maid in Chennai remark,’ So what if Rs 1000 is withdrawn? I don’t have 1000 note anyway. Only hoarders are affected, aren’t they? Well, I wish more of such people are punished.’

Made the Ganges more polluted by having to carry sacks full of dumped cash. 

Made Rahul Gandhi return to India and stand in a queue, for the first time in his life.

As an aside, I saw all the 2G, Coal scam and Sharada scam accused come together, stand in front of parliament and demand justice for themselves. 

For the first time, an income tax assesse felt proud of paying his tax. 

Why do you call Nehru, ‘Panditji’ ?

‘Why do you say ‘Panditji’ while refering to Nehru? Why the honorific ;ji’? Do you concur with his policies?’ asks a reader.

Here is why:

Jawahar Lal Nehru, a Kasmiri Pandit, came into my world as Pandit Nehru. Neyveli, a brainchild of Nehru, Kamaraj, Venkatraman and C.Subramaniam, had Panditji enshrined in every possible space. I am a product of Jawahar School, named after him.

For me, Panditji, like Gandhiji, Netaji, Rajaji and Kamaraj, is a national hero. No doubt, he made mistakes (three costly ones included). So did all others.

A leader doesn’t come to us chiseled in pristine silver, but as a Pancha-Loka – a mixture of several characteristics and attributes. Some characteristics outshine the others. That is all about it.

Gandhiji too made mistakes. But that doesn’t diminish his sacrifice or achievements. So did Netaji. He aligned with Hitler, but for a greater cause. That doesn’t make Netaji a person not worthy of respect and awe.

Rajaji, for all his intellect and impeccable integrity, aligned with the anti-national DMK. I think it was a mistake. He wanted a referendum on Kashmir and later opposed the abolition of privy purse. But his stature doesn’t tumbledown due to that. For me, Rajaji would continue to be the best pragmatist and pro-market realist that India has ever had.

Similarly, despite his blunders on China, Kashmir and the pro-left economics, Panditji would continue to be a hero, albeit a tad lesser than Rajaji or Gandhiji.

Hence, for me, Nehru is Panditji. Period.

P.S.: Don’t expect any kind treatment of Panditji in my upcoming book ‘Our struggle for Truth, Sense and Honour – a Hindutva version of Indian History’. #realnehruhistory

Re-writing India, page by page

When Panditji, in 1963, requested the RSS to take part in the Republic Day parade as a thanksgiving for its services during the 1962 China war, the tide had begun to turn right.

Later, govt after govt, in wholly misplaced and now widely-acknowledged-as-stupid acts of appeasement, ably aided by liberal funding from missionaries and NGOs, continued to paint the RSS in bad light. This ensured that left-centric academic discourse alone hogged limelight and all other streams of thought were painted as backward and retrograde.

Decade after decade, large chunks of tax payer money was spent to write history with a Red tint, Green bias and White symphathy on the one hand, and anti-Saffron on the other. The damage this has done to the psyche of the nation did not deter the rulers and their psychophants who doubled up as gurus of great erudition.

This has resulted in brainwashing generations of Indians into believing that their days of glory didn’t exist, that theirs was a caste and superstition-ridden society and that the new age gurus were the Mughals and the British who brought some semblance of modernity and thought to the teeming millions of beggars, mendicants and snake charmers.

Anything in excess would only turn counter productive. Therefore the hatred-spewing and venom-spitting by the left media, missionary and academia have resulted in the following :

  1. RSS Prime Minister
  2. RSS President
  3. RSS Vice President
  4. RSS Chief Ministers in most states

Now is the time to write a true history of India, that does not care about the multitudes of harems of the Mughal emperors, but looks at the accomplishments of Rajendra Cholan, Travancore Kings, Chatrapathi Shivaji, the Bhosles, the Peshwas and other un-sung patriots.

Now is the time to correctly document the business acumen of the Chettiar community of South India, whose business prowess, even in the then not-so-modern times, were admirable and comparable to the current day Harvard Business grads.

Now is the time to write about our real heroes – Rani Mangamma of Madurai, Rani of Jhansi and the multitude of lady warriors who sacrificed their lives for their honour and for the honour of their states.

Now is the time to look at what happened in Kashi, Mathura and Ayodhya, and explain, without any bias, as to why what happened, happened.

Now is the time to make Indians feel that their ancestors were not stupids and idiots as they have been taught to believe.

Now is the time to re-write India, page by page.

PM’s Israel Visit – some thoughts

Thought 1

When Singapore sought help from India to help set an army, India didn’t respond, for fear of antagonizing the Arabs and Malaysia.

Pragmatic Singapore then recognized Israel, gave embassy space for the nation and took her help in designing its successful National Service. Singapore benefited from Israel’s technical prowess and more specifically in its water treatment technologies. It was a mutually beneficial relationship.

It has taken 70 years for an Indian PM to visit Israel and establish the historical ties that the two people had. When the Jews were persecuted everywhere else, India gave refuge to the beleaguered people and took care of them. This was recognized by the Israeli parliament later.

With the PM’s visit, a long standing stupidity of alienating Israel has been broken. The monstrous idiocy of supporting Yasser Arafat’ PLO and similar destructive organizations, the completely baffling stupidity of supporting the OIC backed resolutions against Israel, the long dead and gone NAM driven policy blunders are, thankfully, things of the past.

Let the people of the world unite on the basis of shared values, rather than be divided on the basis of language, religion or ideology. That is the essence of vasudaiva kudumbakam and the long standing Indian value system ‘யாதும் ஊரே யாவரும் கேளிர்’.

Thought 2

Finally the days of pusillanimity are over. Gone are the days when Prime Minister Nehru wanted Israeli arms but imposed a condition that they not be shipped under Israeli flag. So much for not angering the Arabs.

Prime Minister Modi did not make the ‘customary’ visit to Palestine to ‘underscore’ the historically stupid position of supporting terrorist states in the name of fighting for justice. Nothing against Palestine but every thing against such ‘balancing-acts’.

The ‘customary’ meeting with China in G-20 has also been called off. Say it as a show of force or a sign of bravado. Nevertheless, this is a change in stance from historically bending over backwards to appease and prostrate.

Let there not be a war, but let a message be sent that India of the past, India of appeasement, India with a circular backbone is a thing of the past.

First thing to do, after the PM returns, is to appoint a full time Defense Minister, one with a military background preferably. This will not only reinvigorate the Armed forces, but also send a message that India means business.

When Abdul Kalam was made President, the Indian communists, whose fatherhood is often a matter of question, asked what message would it send to China if we appoint a missile technologist to the highest office.

Now, we need to have an equivalent in the Defense Ministry.

ISRO: a personal history – a review

ISRO-A Personal History R.Aravamudan, an Engineer with the premier space organization ISRO, writes his experiences in first person singular, in this fascinating book.  His history calibrates with the history of ISRO and both grow together and bring laurels to the nation.

The story starts when Aravamudan joins Vikram Sarabhai’s team that plans to launch rockets. What a journey from then on!

Aravamudan trains with NASA for 2 months along with Abdul Kalam, and then heads to the tranquil Thumba in Kerala for initiating the sounding rockets programme. He, along with Kalam and a few others, under monthly supervision by Vikram Sarabhai builds the TERLS in Kerala.

Aravamudan details the different stages of development of ISRO, the nail biting moments during early rocket launches, the leadership of Sarabhai, Satish Dhawan and Kalam and the trials and tribulations of rocket programmes run by a newly independent country.

Aravamudan also details the sabotages staged by trade unions and the delays caused by the violent workers who were affiliated with the unions.

The sections on the workaholic Vikram Sarabhai who worked until he dropped dead, the sequence of events leading up to the SLV launch ( Kalam was responsible for this), the sequential upgrades to the SLV Programme – all these are so tightly narrated without any letup that you feel the tension building up in you when you read them.

What is remarkable is that, page after page, you see the young engineers trying to solve a complex problem with what ever limited resources they had. Without sophisticated technical assistance from abroad, with limited governmental budgetary support, what has been achieved is indeed remarkable.

If you need to know about what the US did to scuttle the cryogenic engine technology development in India and how the engineers from ISRO overcame the hurdles, then this book is for you.  You get to know about the contributions of often familiar names : Kasturi Rangan, U.R.Rao, Madhavan Nair, Abdul Kalam, Brahm Prakash, Satish Dhawan and a whole list of luminaries from ISRO.

In 1962 a batch of 5 Indian engineers land in NASA for a 2 month training, return to India and help set up the ISRO and make the organization what it is today. In the same year, a team from Pakistan also visits NASA. Rest is history.

A veritable read that no Indian should miss.
