The continued success of the India Model
Research Signals - August 2021
Over the past several years, economic activity in India has been impacted by major events including the double shock of demonetization and the introduction of the goods and services tax (GST) between late 2016 and mid 2017, a significant corporate tax rate cut in September 2019 and, most recently, the COVID-19 pandemic. With these events in mind, we review the Research Signals India model which has proven successful in navigating the uncertainty surrounding these major events.
