Modi’s election “most significant event of 2014” argues John Hulsman

Writing for City A.M., Dr John Hulsman, a prolific foreign affairs commentator, analyses why Modi’s election is the most important political event of the year, and what this means for investors.

Having predicted Modi’s huge win and importance for over a year, John notes that Modi will be the first Indian leader to be able to form a single party government since 1984. Consequently this “amounts to nothing less than a revolution, a political sea change for the most populous democracy on earth, with huge promise for the world’s investors.”

John goes on to outline Modi’s to-do list:

  1. Crack down on corruption, and quickly.
  2. Renew the link of the governing with the governed.
  3. Tame the dragon of inflation.
  4. Most importantly, reignite India’s world-beating growth rates of the past.

As India looks to Modi to bring about economic revival, John suggests that “investors should look at India in this fashion: even given the corrupt, inefficient government of the past decade, India still managed to grow at 4.5 per cent. Imagine what it can do with more efficient, honest, pro-business people in charge?”
