Core Tenets of Development Consensus :

Savings as engine of Growth- Reservations : 

Savings as engine of Growth- Reservations The ability of the Government to raise aggregate savings when households can anticipate the policy impacts on future income streams and adjust their savings accordingly. An increase in the savings ratio provides only a temporary rather than a permanent boost to the rate of economic growth. Year-on-year changes in domestic product suggest that only a part of growth can be explained by capital accumulation or increases in employment. Strong link between savings, technological innovation and knowledge management. 5 copyright: yerramraju

Still Problems Galore Inefficient and almost failed PDS Subsidies led to inefficient use of inputs and low total factor productivity in agriculture Tampering with Repayment culture thru periodical loan write-offs and interest write-offs came in the way of equity and discipline in institutional farm credit dispensation State-run Irrigation works, Electricity Boards (GENCOs and TRANSCOs) Procurement and PDS are monumental failures and wasted resources Flow of resources to rural areas still impeded Narrow politics at all levels coming in the way of Growth. 12 copyright: yerramraju

So……. : 

So……. Self-reliance can be achieved only by practice of self-help within local communities Practicing self-help pre-supposes an enabling socio-economic and legal environment Empowerment of communities and individuals have to move hand-in-hand Poverty and Access To Endowments are closely connected in an inverse geometric proportion. State Intervention shall remove disability or access to endowments for the extremely poor. Federal structure shall only facilitate and not impede the strategic approaches to reducing poverty. 14 copyright: yerramraju
