Political risk series: Interference and independence at the Reserve Bank of India

Mon 26 Nov 2018

Ellie Groves, OMFIF programmes manager for emerging markets, is joined by Lord (Meghnad) Desai to discuss the political and economic implications of government pressure on the Reserve Bank of India. Desai examines the importance of central bank independence for global capital markets and promoting investment into a country, why the government of Prime Minister Narendra Modi might be trying to influence the RBI, and whether this will lead to a wider trend of governments pressuring their central banks to prioritise growth over tighter monetary policy.
