Rajan's views are presented with academic zeal, apolitical wisdom and self-effacing too. There is little of "I' and more of "WE" in the path breaking work initiated during his tenure. Alas , wish there was some humor or salacious tit-bits, surely Mr.Rajan must've been privy to some. Anyways, the book is a collector's delight.
The treatise on “Dosa Economics” explains economic concepts in a readily accessible way. C Rangarajan, former governor of RBI, in his comment on the book, said, “This book, packed with the weight of his intellect, charmingly convincing logic and down-to-earth dosa economics, is a welcome end to his one-year maun vrat”, and I can’t agree more on that.
One of the most controversial issues affecting the RBI was the demonetization. Though he hasn’t discussed much of this in his book, he did accept that RBI was just a passive partner. “At no point during my term was the RBI asked to decide on demonetization,” Rajan writes. He expressed his reservations against it, saying short-term economic costs would outweigh long-term benefits and there were “better alternatives to achieve the main goals”.
This book is a good read to understand the dynamics involved at the central bank, the role of different committees, reports and the collective work between government, the central bank, markets and Banks. To quote Rajan, “The governorship of the central bank is not meant to win one votes or Facebook “likes”. But I hope to do the right thing, no matter what the criticism, even while looking to learn from the criticism.”
I suggest all those who are curious to know about the workings of a central bank to give this book a try. As a civil service aspirant, I really enjoyed reading this book and for those who are thinking that there is hard-core economics in this book, I’ve to say it’s not correct, as not even a single graph or number table is used. But, yes those who follow his work regularly may find it boring to read all his speeches again.
A must for any stakeholder of the economy!
