Cheap oil can hurt the economy, but experts missed it 23.5.2015 SFGate: Business & Technology
Plunging oil prices would boost the U.S. economy. [...] despite their savings at the gas pump, people have slowed their spending. Cheaper oil and gas had been expected to turbocharge spending and drive growth, more than making up for any economic damage caused by cutbacks in the U.S. oil patch. Other experts were more direct: “Lower oil prices are an unambiguous plus for the U.S. economy,” Chris Lafakis, an economist at Moody’s Analytics, wrote in January. Corporate spending on drill rigs, steel piping for wells and railcars to transport oil has become an increasingly vital driver of economic growth. [...] when oil prices fall and energy companies retrench, the economy suffers. The drilling boom that erupted in 2008 has boosted U.S. oil production nearly 75 percent and natural gas 30 percent and made the United States the world’s largest combined producer of oil and natural gas. “The benefit of lower oil prices is less pronounced than, say, 10 years ago,” said Jim Burkhard, a researcher at IHS ...

‘Pro-growth’ but no crony links: Arun Jaitley 23.5.2015 Asian Age: India
Narendra Modi interacts with a girl during a function to celebrate the golden jubilee of poet Ramdhari Singh Dinkar’s works. Finance minister Arun Jaitley said on Friday that the Narendra Modi government will keep an “arm’s length distance in terms of decision-making from individual business houses”. Presenting the finance ministry’s one-year report card, the minister said: “As far as we are concerned, we are reforming and liberalising, but there is no place for crony capitalism.” Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi had recently launched a series of attacks on the Modi government, accusing it of being “pro-corporate” and taking decisions to benefit a few business houses at the cost of farmers and the poor. Mr Jaitley said the Modi government was “pro-growth” and “pro-development”, and added: “Our social security programmes are going to be one of the strongest ever in this country... What led to the fall and the unpopularity of the UPA government was crony capitalism (in) coal blocks, mining, spectrum... ...

State pushes for Dhule power project 23.5.2015 Asian Age: Mumbai
The state government is hoping that it will finally be able to acquire land for a 3,300 MW coal-based thermal power project in Dhule, which has been stuck for two years. Local farmers had earlier opposed the land acquisition process, but state revenue minister Eknath Khadse said that now the state government has offered five times the compensation offered earlier and farmers will be happy with the decision. “We have recently decided to compensate two-and-half times the cost of land by ready reckoner (RR) rate for its acquisition in urban area while land owners in rural areas will get five times more compensation than the rate of RR,” Mr Khadse said. The power project in Dondaicha constituency, which is represented by BJP legislator Jaykumar Rawal, had been in a limbo for the last two years as farmers opposed the land acquisition process and waited for a new Bill after it was introduced in Parliament by the then UPA government. Mr Rawal, along with a delegation of project-affected land owners, had met Mr ...
