Elected politicians usually look no more than five years ahead. But Narendra Modi has never lost an election, and after the landslide victory in May 2014 that propelled him into the top job he made a triumphal speech insisting that “ten years is all that is needed” to modernise India. Mr Modi has grand ambitions for his country, and self-confidence to match. But can he deliver? http://econ.st/1ekRnLZ

PM-Modi has dedicated himself for development of the country with his tireless work-schedules, corruption-free & transparent. If all his ministry-colleagues follow his every footsrep, there is no doubt that India will be a very different country from its plagued state of 2013-14, in next 9 definite years.

National economic data always mask regional differences. In Italy, however, they disguise a divide that is deeper than normal. The country is, in effect, made up of two economies, and if its economy is to grow anywhere near as fast as that of the euro zone’s powerhouse, it will have to find some way to narrow the divide http://econ.st/1K4UC4b
AFTER three years of recession, Italy’s economy actually grew in the first three months of the year, by 0.3% compared with the previous quarter. It is forecast to...

An austere individual would be someone who lives within their budget. But that is not what economists tend to mean when they talk about austerity. Lots of people debate and campaign against it, but what exactly is it? http://econ.st/1K4RJAm

Interviewers are trying to juggle their day jobs with their recruiting duties: they seldom spend more than a minute or so reviewing each application form. In the interview room they behave predictably: they follow a set script, starting with some ice-breaking chit-chat, then asking you about yourself, then setting a work-related problem. That makes them desperate for relief from the tedium. Be vivacious. Hang on their every word. And flatter their self-image as “the best of the best”. A guide to joining the 1% http://econ.st/1L1hnpE

The vain feats of Kim Il Sung, the Korean guerrilla leader who fought the Japanese occupiers from Manchuria, were irresistible to the destitute North Koreans who, by the 1940s, had suffered nearly four decades of brutal colonisation. They did not know the truth: that Kim lost his war, fled east and later slinked home in a Soviet uniform, kowtowing to Stalin until his death. Nor did they see that Kim’s monstrous regime, which would last another 41 years until he died in 1994, was built on fiction http://econ.st/1ehYdle

For a less brazenly politically motivated and more nuanced analysis of what happened in Korea in the first half of the 20th century, I suggest William Stueck's Rethinking the Korean War and The Wlisonian Moment by Erez Manela.

Japan's government is waging an increasingly heavy-handed campaign to intimidate the media. Even pro-government journalists are crying foul. And a new law on state secrets that could send journalists to prison for receiving leaked information, will presumably dampen already meagre investigative appetites http://econ.st/1dmEiS5
